Great for nurses and anyone fascinated to learn about how the field has evolved. Outside of the St Thomas hospital. Nice little souvenir shop inside to grab a few trinkets.

Built on the site of Florence Nightingale's school for nurses founded in 1859 after her return from the Crimean War. Great insight into her work and life.

An often overlooked museum at Westminster, in St Thomas Hospital Grounds. Great for a wet afternoon. Nearby monuments too

An advocate of free healthcare, Florence Nightingale raised nursing to a professional level for women and started her own training school for nurses at St Thomas'.

This museum commemorates ‘the Lady of the Lamp’ who travelled to the Crimea to care for British soldiers in 1854, and went on to lay the foundations of modern nursing.
