Pollock's Toy MuseumCrammed inside two townhouses (one 18th, the other 19th century) on a pretty sidestreet you'll find this historic haven for toys of all kinds. Named after Benjamin Pollock, a creator and printer of Victorian toy theatres, the museum now boasts a diverse range of toys from all over the world. Follow the trail up three winding staircases and you'll stumble across battered and bruised century-old bears to a 4000-year-old Egyptian clay mouse. Dolls, dolls' houses, a Victorian nursery, toy theatres, tin toys and folk toys from around the world make up the rest of the collection. Live toy theatre performances take place during school holidays. Full of character and charm this is a great place to while away a few nostalgic hours. There's also a cool toy shop on the ground floor.
