  1. Russell Square is actually slightly closer to the British Museum than Holborn. It is also the local station for Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Coram’s Fields, who have a beautifully worded entrance policy “all adults must be accompanied by at least one child”. You also missed Wood Green, which is within walking distance of Alexandra Palace (not as close as the railway station of that name, but not a lot in it). South Kensington is of course home to several museums and all should have been mentioned, not just the Science Museum.
