The Museum of London has thousands of images illustrating the history of London and its people from prehistoric times to the present. These include images from our collections of paintings, prints and drawings, photography, printed ephemera and 3D objects including archaeological artefacts, costume and jewellery. We also have images and footage from the Port of London Authority Collection.

You need permission to reproduce our images. If you are interested in licensing Museum of London images or footage from our unique archive please contact us with details of what images you want to license and how you want to use them.

Please remember to let us know your deadlines so we can prioritise urgent requests. We can help you find the images you require and arrange licences and fees. We can also organise new photography of objects from the collections. The income generated from charging for licensing and photography contributes towards maintaining the Museum.
