'Architecture of War' Launches Re-opened Imperial War Museum

Discounted hotels in London announced close to exhibition.

July 23, 2013, 10:54 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A large-scale exhibition looking at art's response to warfare will be the first collection open to the public at the rejuvenated Imperial War Museum, which has been closed for six months. The event and the museum itself opens on July 29th, and will remain there until May of next year. Entry to the Lambeth museum is free of charge.

The selection takes in British works from the past hundred years. The First World War is featured heavily in anticipation of next year's centenary of the conflict's commencement. As well as depictions of the battlefield itself, the collection looks at the machinery of warfare - including munitions factories and political theatre - and the effect of war on the general public.

Exhibits include Henry Carr's 1944 painting 'Liberation' and Paul Hogarth's 1981 drawing of the Berlin Wall. Watercolours include David Baxter's compelling 'The Dining Room', which depicts the Red Cross headquarters in Boulogne in 1918. 'Architecture of War' also looks at the machinations of The Cold War, and the devastating aftermath of the recent Afghanistan conflicts.

Alongside the new exhibition is the IWM's usual array of weaponry, tanks, submarines, and the moving Trench Experience, which aims to give visitors a small insight into life on the frontlines.

To coincide with the exhibition, LondonTown.com has revealed a number of discounts on hotels in London, all within walking distance of the IWM. Among the offers, the Days Hotel London Waterloo is knocking 47% off double rooms, bringing the cost of a night's stay down to 74. The Days is located on Kennington Road, just 3 minutes' walk from the IWM.

The Bridge Hotel London on Borough Road, less than ten minutes from the IWM, is offering double rooms with ensuite at a 58% discount or 54 per night.

The Park Plaza on Westminster Bridge Road is offering double rooms for 126 per night 56% less than the standard rate. All featured hotels in London are only available at the reduced rates when booking via LondonTown.com. Visit the website for more discounted hotels in London, and for more information on 'Architecture of War' at the Imperial War Museum.
