Beyond the iconic landmarks, architectural grandeur and edgy art scenes, London is home to an array of museums and original historical sites, allowing your students to explore the wonderful, intriguing and sometimes unbelievable world of medicine and health through time.

For nearly 2,000 years, London has been a centre for commerce and politics and, as the population grew, further work was required to care for the population’s health. Therefore London is packed with evidence and tales of seemingly barbaric Roman surgery through to fascinating developments in modern science and public health.
