Florence Nightingale Museum, London

Explore the Florence Nightingale Museum on your university or college trip to London.

Student groups can enjoy a self-guided visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum to explore the application and consideration of medicine through time, celebrating the life and work of the world’s most famous nurse.

Located on the banks of the river Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament, the museum enables visitors to learn more about the ‘Lady with the Lamp’ and her Victorian world.

Here, you will also examine Florence’s legacy, her influence on nursing today and the confirming relevance of her work.

Due to the size of the museum, they only allow groups of fifteen students in the museum at one time. However, groups can split and visit the mini museum in St Thomas' Hospital instead, which illustrates how medicines and operating techniques have advanced through history.
