Description

The buildings of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow house a collection of unique rooms and function suites available for formal functions, private dining, conferences and meetings, and Weddings. Our function and meeting rooms each tell a part of the College’s story through history, with individual character, charm and period features.

The College Hall is the largest function suite in the building, and one of the grandest. It has many beautiful, original features including a magnificent ornate ceiling, chandeliers and an impressive Victorian fireplace. It was purpose built in 1892 as a venue for formal events, examinations and Admission Ceremonies for new College Fellows and Members. It houses a collection of traditional portraits of prominent College Fellows, dating as early as 1599. The Hall is now used for corporate dinners, large meetings, banquets and balls, as well as conferencing and exhibitions; its unique setting makes it difficult to believe you are in a city centre location.

Every summer, numerous private squares welcome the public to browse the immaculate gardens and share their little secrets. This spectacular gardening event is called the London Open Garden Weekend. I am curious about plants of medicinal values, so I visited the Open Garden Weekend hosted by the Royal College of Physicians.Nearest tube stations are Warren Street and Great Portland Street. Thank you.

This was a fantastic free museum experience in London, located close to Regents park tube station. The museum has interesting information about the history of the college of physicians and it's traditions. There are interesting facts about the history of medicine and how technology has affected the practice of modern medicine. The best part was the anatomical tables on the second floor which were fascinating to see and experience and listen the theories about their origins.

The William Harvey exhibition in the museum room is well thought out, exhibits, interactive displays, an introductory video and unique insights into early medicine. The treasure room contains fascinating medical equipment covering 500 years of European medicine. The building itself is an architectural masterpiece and worth looking at in its own right.

One of my Christmas party a few years ago was here and I thought it was a beautiful building; I came yesterday to see the exhibition and had a wander around the whole building - very impresive.
