Join our lunchtime taster tour for a chance to explore our Grade I listed home and discover how this award-winning architectural design was developed.

In 1958 architect Denys Lasdun won the commission to build the RCP a new home. A home that would act as a visual representation of the RCP’s changing organisation as it became a forward-thinking institution getting involved in improving public health. A building that would also act as a reminder of the institution’s 500-year history with purposefully designed spaces in which to care for its archives, rare books and historic collections.

From April the monthly Medicinal Garden tours begin again. Following the taster tour in the building you can book to join one of our expert Garden Fellows from 2pm to explore the unique and bespoke collection of plants that offer living examples of the history of medicine from ancient Egypt to the life-saving prescription drugs of today.
