Pollock’s Toy Museum
London Cocktail Club
There are cocktails and then there are cocktails. The guys in this slightly tatty subterranean bar will shake, stir, blend and smoke...
This award-winning eatery is the creation of Ollie Dabbous, everyone's favourite new chef, so book ahead for dinner or come for lunch...
Pollock’s Toy Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Aimed at adults as much as kids, this museum is simultaneously creepy and mesmerising. You walk in through its shop, laden with excellent wooden toys and various games, and start your exploration by climbing up a rickety narrow staircase, where displays begin with mechanical toys, puppets and framed dolls from Latin America, Africa, India and Europe.
Upstairs is the museum’s collection of toy theatres, many made by Benjamin Pollock himself, the leading Victorian manufacturer of the popular sets, as well as tin toys, teddy bears and weird-looking dolls in cotton nighties.
