Wellcome CollectionA major and fascinating cultural venue, the Wellcome Collection combines three galleries: 'Medicine Man', 'Medicine Now' and 'special exhibitions'. In addition you'll find the famous Wellcome Library, cafe, bookshop and a 'forum' to consider issues of science, health and human identity. The 1,300 objects on display show the great variety of considerations that these topics include. Works by Leonardo da Vinci, Andy Warhol and Martin Parr sit alongside artefacts such as Nelson's razor, Napoleon's toothbrush, used Guillotine blades, a DNA-sequencing robot and 19th century sex aids. Who would have thought science could be so interesting? Well, Charles Darwin for one and he's represented here too - by his whalebone walking stick, complete with skull detail. You can expect some interesting one-off exhibitions here, starting with 'The Heart', with fascinating footage of live heart surgery; a video-link allows the audience to ask the surgical team questions as they carry out the complex reconstruction of a heart valve. If you're still hungry after that - and if you are then you're the type of person who can have supper while watching 'Casualty' - then head to Peyton and Byrne, the second branch of Oliver Peyton's stylish British bakery (the first being at Heal's on Tottenham Court Road). Terrines, tarts, pies, soups and salads are available to eat in or take out and the teatime treats are highly recommended.
