A real dive into the past, a museum that does not call itself as a museum but not even a shop. It is located in an old house and in the rooms there are hundreds and hundreds of toys, dolls, dollhouses, rocking horses, trains, teddy bears and many toys from other eras.
It is obviously fascinating but also slightly creepy. The current Pollock’s Toy Museum was opened in the 1950s by Marguerite Fawdry. It was originally located near Covent Garden above Pollock’s Toy Theatres store. In fact, Benjamin Pollock was a designer and creator of children’s theatres of the 1800s.
Now since the 1970s, the museum is located near the Goodge Street subway station and normally you can visit from Monday to Saturday included from 10am to 5pm. But during the coronavirus pandemic you will have to book an appointment here to be able to visit.
