Pollock’s Toy Museum can be found down Scala Street inside two 18th-century townhouses. The buildings are full of tiny little rooms and creaky stairs, but you won’t find any Nintendos here – just three floors of dusty puppets, dolls and teddy bears, to tin toys, board games and optical tricks.
There is a myriad of mechanical toys for the men, and delicate dolls houses for the ladies. There is also a large collection of folk toys from Asia, India and Africa.
Don’t forget to pop into the toyshop downstairs, which sells top quality wooden items and old-style cardboard theatres with cut-out figurines – something which Pollock’s is particularly famous for.
