The Royal College of Surgeon

 

The Hunterian Museum houses one of the oldest collections of anatomical, pathological and zoological specimens in the UK. Both fascinating and gruesome, this museum is a true hidden gem in London. With its collection of bizarre and unusual anatomical things you have everything from two headed cats to a collection of human genetalia. Nothing more real!

The museum is free but unfortunately will be closed till 2020 while the Royal College of Surgeons building is redeveloped.

Did you know that early surgeons did not require a medical degree to become a surgeon? Surgeons became qualified by attending lectures and serving apprenticeships before gaining a diploma. A medical degree only became compulsory in the 20th century.
