Old Operating Theatre. Southwark.
This event is no longer available for registration.
This is an opportunity for a private visit to this unique museum in the centre of London, in the shadow of the Shard, very close to London Bridge Station.
The Museum is in St. Thomas's Church - built by Wren's master mason Thomas Cartwright. Britain's oldest surviving Operating Theatre has been restored with original furniture, including a 19th Century operating table. The museum displays the history of herbal medicine, surgery, nursing at Old St. Thomas's Hospital (the original home of Florence Nightingale's Nursing School) and Guy's Hospital and the Evelina Children's Hospital. It provides a dramatic insight into life before the modern era.
We have been lucky enough to secure an exclusive viewing and talk by the museum's curator, Karen Howell, a herbalist.
A wine reception will follow the talk and tour. Book now without delay!
For more information about the museum visit their website www.thegarret.org.ukN.B The museum has restricted access and is only accesible via a narrow 32 step spiral stairs, and is difficult for those who are not able bodied.
