9A St Thomas Street, SE1 9RY London, United Kingdom
This is a unique after hours event that will take you back in time to witness a mock Victorian surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital dated to 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high. Upon entrance you will be welcomed to a glass of wine (included in the ticket price) and to spend some time looking around the museum. Later on you will experience the whole demonstration from the point of view of a 19th century medical student. Do not miss out this fantastic opportunity to enjoy this Museum Late!

Doors will open at 6:30 PM.

Tickets: £12.00.

*Access is through a 52-step spiral staircase. Please, visit our Visiting Us page for further details on access at oldoperatingtheatre.com.

**Be advised that this event will take place on multiple dates. Ensure that the date that you want to come is the one that you have chosen. We cannot accept tickets from a different date than the one that you book.
