Britain’s oldest surviving purpose-built operating theatre, situated in a herb garret in the roof of St Thomas’s Church. Built in 1821 for poor women, the theatre has been restored with original furniture and equipment, including a nineteenth-century operating table, surgical instruments and pathological specimens.
