Considering they have a collection of over 1 million artefacts, there really isn’t that much on display. We were hoping to see something a little bit more gory in relation to modern medical science/history. However, it is very nicely laid out and styled, and if...More

If you don’t fancy loitering on the concourse of Euston station then the Wellcome Collection (and associated cafe) could be just what you need. Situated a very short walk from Euston (literally over the road) there is always something to look at. There is a...More

Much quieter than the usual museum circuit even during the first weekend of the school holidays and free. A fascinating eclectic collection of items including some really unsual medical exhibits. The temporary dental exhibition was really interesting, I only wish we'd had a bit more...More

A fabulous place to spend several hours, and it's free! Downstairs are installations similar to those in a modern art gallery. We had someone explain the bull story to us which was very enlightening! Lots more to see on the next 2 floors. The "Teeth"...More

Here is a respite from the traditional London "museum circuit." The Wellcome Collection combines/contrasts medical history and artistic interpretations. An exhibit "Teeth" includes talks on smiles, both dentally and artistically. The talk paired with an exhibit on the history of dentistry, with examples of fascinating...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

Despite an understandable popularity with students,

Yeah there’s enough mummies, gruesome looking medical tools and funny pictures to keep them busy. We had a six year old who thinks museums are boring and he enjoyed it

I would say 2 hours. There is a well stocked book store, as good as Foyles, ans an excellent restaurant which has an emphasis on fruit and vegetable- based meals.
