  • Pop in if you are walking past when it is open but do not make a special trip. The venue is used for comedy gigs too and probably perfect for that. It is a room with pictures of the owners favorite co...  more »

  • Tiny venue, but get some of the real good names of comedy.
  • The venue is pretty cool and has a lot of interesting ties to the history of comedy. The act we saw was just ok though... and the museum looks a bit unfinished.
  • This would be better termed a reading room for the over 50. Great library but you need to already know British comedy to get value. Nice tea. Bit expensive for the museum side. Could do with interpretative materials and some new donations from the comedians. Still, some great reads, so worth a visit.
  • The hardest venue to find and when you do you will be treated to a show in the same conditions as the surface of the sun. Not to mention the chairs were so hard I almost ask the poor man next to me to massage my bum to get the feeling back. Luckily for him I was so concerned that I would faint with the heat and that there was no oxygen in the room my bum was the last of my problems.
  • Fascinating and hoping this museum can be expanded. Located in the crypt of St. George's Bloomsbury. Good stuff on show and they could do with more to exhibit. If you think of the generations of extremely fine comedians we have had surely this is a great opportunity for such a place as this. Great idea and worth supporting.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
