A very warm Wellcome
Euston isn’t short of museums, and the Wellcome Collection is one of the best. Its founder, Henry Wellcome, collected over a million medical objects in his lifetime - and they’re all on display in this fascinating museum. And that's far from the only star of this central London destination, perhaps best known for its world-famous station, with national links to the North of England and Scotland.
