Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret


About the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret

Hidden in the roof above an old church, this is a 19th century operating theatre, herb garret and museum of surgery.

It's also on the original site of St Thomas' Hospital.

It's almost two museums in one, the restored old operating theatre itself, and next to it the herb garret, which was an early pharmacy.

Note that entrance is via a narrow spiral staircase.
