With a large train station for regional and national rail networks, and two underground stations, Euston is one of London’s busiest commuter hubs. There is more to the area than public transport though, it is home to medical and scientific research, and there are a few historic, and unusual spots worth checking out.

Euston road is home to The Wellcome Collection, which specialises in connections between medicine, life and art and the library has free WiFi which is great for remote working or studying. As with many of London’s museums, entrance is free, and worth a visit for the architecture as well as the exhibitions. Local landmark The Crypt Gallery is spooky, atmospheric and also free to visit with regular exhibitions and events. For some ancient history, head to The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology which has around 80, 0000 objects including pyramid text and the oldest dress from Eygpt on display in the world.

Restaurants here tend to be of the chain variety, and most options are in and around the mainline station itself, but drop in to the Euston Tap for pints in an old railway lodge, and a rotating menu of cask ales.
