  • Unfortunately it was closed after we trekked across the city to get there. The website said open until 5:00. We arrived at 3:45 and they were already closed. Super disappointing. Adorable on the outside, however.
  • It’s a tiny museum crammed to full with toys. Toys are really everywhere - on the walls, in the cabinets, up the ceiling; mostly british ones, but I’ve found also some from Russia (and even Poland!), of all sorts - beginning with dolls (there’s one cabinet that is full of doll parts and dolls at various stages of decomposition), through trucks, board games, robots and finishing with cutouts. For such small space there’s an impressive amount of subjects gathered, but be forewarned - it’s just 5 rooms in a very crowded house, with admission fee of £6 for adults, so if toys are not your thing and you want something more interactive, there’s plenty of other attractions around (I for my part was smiling all the time, seeing these curious exhibits)
  • Cute little museum with.various toys games and dolls. Stairs are quite narrow but not a major problem. Worth.a visit
  • Because it also sells toys and at very good prices. It's a very nice place to visit and learn about the past.
  • breathtaking collection of peculiar and bizarre beauty; the most amazing museum I've ever been to.

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.
