The St Bartholomew’s Hospital Museum & Archives is located in the hospital’s historic North Wing, and overlooks the famous 18th century square designed by James Gibbs.

The hospital was once linked to the Priory of St Bartholomew, and the Norman priory church, now known as St Bartholomew the Great, is situated a few minutes walk from the hospital in West Smithfield. The hospital church of St Bartholomew the Less, which with the priory church is part of the united benefice of Great St Bartholomew, is on the hospital site. Both beautiful churches are open to visitors.

We have a lot more Museums for you to look at in our directory.
