A hidden gem, free to enter but please consider donating a pound to this wonderful small volunteer-run space that must be preserved for future generations. Excellent range of publications and what could be more interesting than Joseph Merrick and Frederick Treves? The walk itself through the area from the city is worth the time. Please ring ahead of visiting.

A large history of nursing and a mould of James Merrick the Elephant Man with his original hat on display is why I think most people visit here. The museum is small and you find you are the only people in it but the staff are so helpful and friendly. If your in the area make a visit but don’t travel unless your really into nursing history and the elephant man.

A small museum that depicts the development of this large hospital in the East End of London. The highlight, of course, is the story of Joseph Merrick, the elephant man, who had proteus syndrome. There are pictures and memorabilia of the founding of the hospital and the medical school.

I walked half way across town to visit but it was closed even though it said it was open on the website and sign outside. There were others outside waiting too. Quite poor communication on the part of whoever runs it and disappointing for me as I’ve always wanted to visit

I went on a Tuesday and then again on a Thursday. Both times it was closed despite what the sign indicating the hours read.
