  • Lovely little museum. Very very clean and tidy. Also a very cheap little shop with postcards books dvds and more. Well worth a look. Small but size isn't everything
  • A small museum which holds the skeleton of Joseph merrick, better know as the elephant man
  • Staff of this museum are truly friendly and helpful. They will find you the information you need,
  • This is one of those gems that London has so many of but which few people get to see. It isn't a huge museum but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in interest. You can trace the fascinating history of the hospital itself. But it also has exhibits on the so-called "Elephant Man" Joseph Merrick and a small display on the Jack the Ripper murders which took place in the locality. It can be a bit tricky to find as it is located in the back streets behind the hospital. But, once you have found it you'll be glad you did.
  • The Elephant Man's skeleton is on show here

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.
