Spend time in a beautiful reading room

A great selection and beautiful surroundings
This must try is connected to: Wellcome Collection

The Wellcome Collection is known for its collection of anatomical items and curiosities like shrunken heads and chastity belts, but as well as the permanent galleries and regular exhibitions there is a beautiful reading room open to all.


There's a selection of journals and magazines, many of which are arts or science-based along with books you're free to browse, while you sit on cosy sofas or at tables suitable for working. There are frequent talks and events anyone can join - a sign near the entrance shows upcoming events.


For more in-depth research there's a library with an incredibly comprehensive catalogue of medical and scientific publications.
