Past the steps of the church & descending into its bowels one comes upon something best described as something out of a Mary Whitehouse cheese induced nightmare. A intimate venue crammed full of memorabilia including grotesquely masks of the likes of Tommy Cooper & Ken...More

The Museum of Comedy has a variety of shows on each week, with these ranging in prices depending on the comedian. I went to a 1 hour show there for 7 pounds - great price considering it's in inner London. The show was well worth...More

Great bar , great comedy and good prices! I mostly go during the week and book in advance ! Another pro is that you get to see all ages so you feel really comfortable!

Great comedy show line up but who would have thought so many fun quirky displays. My recommendation, see a show but go early for drinks and a really good nosey. Not a stand alone attraction yet but a great night out with a twist.

Pop in if you are walking past when it is open but do not make a special trip. The venue is used for comedy gigs too and probably perfect for that. It is a room with pictures of the owners favorite comedians and a few...More

Some fascinating bits of memorabilia, but the real reason to go is the shows. A small intimate venue, but host to some top class acts.

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
