In Central London, just off the busy Tottenham Court Road, this is a quaint little establishment located in two historic houses. Yes, it's old fashioned, but the narrow staircases, creaky floorboards and small dimly lit rooms with original fireplaces are what give this place its...More

This small museum is located in a small several hundred year old house. You move up the stairs and through small hallways to get from one exhibit to another. This museum is worth a stop if you were raised in the U.K. As visitors from...More

We usually make it a point to visit museums like these and not the usual national museums but this was disappointing. Not very well lit and hardly seemed worth the entrance fee.

Set in two old houses just behind Goodge Street station, this is a jewel. More toys and games than you can imagine in such a relatively small space. Steep stairs so not good for those with mobility issues.

Small little cozy toy museum, felt like a little gem on my discoveries. Well stocked, well maintained. Reasonably priced entry fee. They have a toy shop attached to the museum. One certainly will learn a thing or two about the history of toys. Credit cards...More

If you are genuine vintage toys and dolls enthusiast, this quirky little museum is a must to visit. It's amazing how many interesting items can be crammed into such a small place. The shop is also worth browsing.

£7 wasted. Look round the shop for free and save yourself the nightmares from the scary old dolls which are 80% of the display. One subbuteo box, a small meccano set and a few matchbox cars is about as modern as it gets.

Dark and cold experience on a snowy day. Difficult to read information and see the toy exhibits as it was quite dark and many areas badly or not lit. Disappointing experience and not worth £7 admission. Gift shop was a little better

I had heard about Pollock's Toy Museum for a while and I was very eager to at last have a chance to visit the venue. It was certainly intriguing to behold; an entire medium size building that had been transformed into a rabbit warren of...More

Doesn't look very big from the outside but there are a number of rooms and many displays. Very interesting especially if you are over 50! Housed in an interesting old building. Could do with a bit of tlc in parts.

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite
