Great comedy show line up but who would have thought so many fun quirky displays. My recommendation, see a show but go early for drinks and a really good nosey. Not a stand alone attraction yet but a great night out with a twist.

Some fascinating bits of memorabilia, but the real reason to go is the shows. A small intimate venue, but host to some top class acts.

This is a large room with a load of memorabilia in it not really a museum as such, but it was nice to browse before seeing a show. The po faced Eastern European girl on the desk was really bored and couldn't muster a smile.

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.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
