#London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015 No.23. Pollock's Toy Museum #XmasInLondon

Welcome to our London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015. 

Over the next few weeks we'll be pointing you in the direction of our favourite shops and shopping neighbourhoods near the meeting and ending points of our London Walks …

No.23. Pollock's Toy Museum

Pollock's Toy Museum is a joy at any time of year. But at Christmas, it really comes into its own.

Benjamin Pollock was the last of the Victorian Toy Theatre printers and this famous London institution takes its name from him. Originally at Monmouth Street, Pollock’s has been at Scala Street W1 since 1969.

Dolls, toy theatres, board games, teddy bears, the shop is a cornucopia of traditional toys.

The museum itself is an eccentric delight with six rooms and three staircases (!) packed with historic toys and games.

If you've forgotten how to keep Christmas in your heart, get along to Pollock's.
