Medical London walk
City stories walks take you on a physical and narrative journey. Our very first walk, Medical London, looks at the history of medicine in and around Bloomsbury. From psychopaths to homeopaths, from bodysnatchers to bohemians, you’ll discover some of the most compelling characters who walked these same streets. This walk also uncovers the diseases, treatments and cures that have coloured Bloomsbury’s history.
