John Keats Trail at the Museum


On the 25th July, 1816, the poet John Keats was awarded his certificate to “practise as an Apothecary.” Keats would complete his St Thomas’ hospital medical student’s training, but this young surgeon (yet to work alone) was born to be a poet.

As part of the 200th Anniversary Celebration, the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret has created a museum trail for adults where elements of Keat’s story, and that of nineteenth century medical students, can be found within key objects in the exhibition.

Don’t miss out this opportunity to learn more about John Keats and the medical profession in nineteenth century England via this trail for adults!

The Museum is open daily from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm.

The entry fee is £6.50 adults, £5 concessions, £3.50 children, £14 family.

National Trust members enter at a discount price.
