  • Wonderfull place to visit and learn about victorian times. Great volunteers especially martha and colin who work in the basement with the children.
  • The museum was founded to make the history of the Ragged Schools and the broader social history of the Victorian East End accessible to all.
  • A cute little local history museum with very enthusiastic staff/volunteers. Definitely a good place to bring your kids.
  • Well worth a visit and learn something new.
  • Lots of events for children. Fascinating history. FREE!!. Guides explained everything. Accessible via the regent's canal.

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.
