This is just opposite Euston Station. Curiosities from the Collection I must admit brought me here, the weird and wonderful, if you like shrunken heads etc. Great cafe and super gift shop, something for everyone.

A treasure of a place. From the lovely greeting at the door, to the chatty and friendly cloakroom attendants (no charge). Full of interesting exhibits and things to discover. The coffee was delicious and the reading room relaxing. The beanbags and oversized cushions on the...More

If you work or travel near Euston Station, it is worth dropping in on this free museum (closed Mondays). As well as the standing collection (part of a millionaire's million and a half exhibits), it also has temporary exhibitions. I have been several times as...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
