It’s well worth climbing the tiny spiral staircase to this 19th century operating theatre in the attic of St Thomas’s Church—you can really imagine gruesome scenes in the horseshoe-shaped theatre. The herb garret is stuffed with interesting and sinister objects, including medical specimens, skeletons, and some truly terrifying operating equipment. The entire space was lost in 1862 when St Thomas’s Hospital moved and the entrances to the theatre were blocked up. In 1956 it was rediscovered by a researcher, and it’s the only 19th century operating theatre to have survived in Europe.

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret is one of the most unusual Museums in London. It is in quite an amazing location - in the attic of an English Baroque church which was used as a Herb Garret, and later on converted into an Operating Theatre in the 19th century

it's great for all - especially if you have children. It teaches about how surgical operations were done in the middle ages and is the oldest operating theatre in the world. Definitely see the show if you have children because it's very entertaining. Entry isn't too expensive

Place
“Dean's Yard is built on the site of The Elms and the former monastery farmyard. Since the 18th century there have been three rows of trees and a central green here, but the high railings surrounding it were removed in 1967. The yard now features a number of large trees, including London planes, a red horse chestnut, a tulip tree, maple and sycamore. Smaller trees include silver birches and a medlar. The surrounding buildings are in an attractive ‘collegiate' style. The site is used by Westminster School as an occasional football pitch.”
