The story of the city of London dates back to pre-historic times, and each era has left its mark on the modern-day city.
Every street has its own secrets to tell: our medical-themed exploration of London is especially designed to complement the Medicine Through Time GCSE syllabus.
Our itineraries trace the development of the practice of medicine across time and across cultures: local museums such as The Old Operating Museum and Herb Garrett provide historical snapshots of healthcare in London itself, while the various permanent exhibitions at the London Science Museum explore the medical practices of cultures across the world.
A really popular tour and (especially when rounded-off with a West End show!) well worth the experience.
