The Wellcome Collection is near Euston, it’s free and has fascinating exhibits. It’s got a great cafe too.

British Library just down the road from Euston. Always a nice exhibition and shop at Xmas. Good cake too!

If you are based in Whitechapel, Euston and the museums around there are quite a distance. The City is nearer. You could go to the Guildhall and Guildhall Art Gallery which has lots of PreRaphaelite art an the London Roman ampitheatre. The Bank of England also has an interesting museum. The Museum of London is near the Barbican.

Or, Marion you could go to Stratford on the Central line and meet us at M &S cafe on 3rd floor for lunch.
