Just down the road from Faraday House at 215 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, you will find the Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation dedicated to improving human and animal health. The Wellcome Trust houses the Wellcome Collection, home to many weird and wonderful exhibits that the general public can wander in and admire free of charge. It often stages guided tours and other activities/exhibitions, most of which are free or reasonably priced. There is also a lovely little cafe and a Blackwells (bookstore) concession, and as it is so conveniently situated just down the road from Faraday House, right opposite Euston Station, it’s really easy just to pop in if you happen to have a few minutes to spare. There you’ll find their exhibition and related activities on the intriguing subject of dirt. That’s the thing I like about the Wellcome Collection: it takes a subject we generally avoid thinking about and challenges our preconceived ideas about them. Result – a slightly more open mind! If you’d like to know more, check out their site here.
