Anatomy and the Body: Guy's Hospital Tour

A guided tour around the grounds of Guy's Hospital showing sites of interest

The great teaching hospitals of the 18th and 19th centuries, among them Guy’s and St Thomas’, trained students in the most up-to-date anatomical advances. This walk around Guy’s Hospital shows where many developments took place, providing a stimulating history of this Hospital for “Incurables”. See one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th Century, wax models of gangrene and scabies, part of the old London Bridge - and a blunderbuss!
