Celebrate the Old Operating Theatre Museum's 50th

Though the Old Operating Theatre in the roof of St Thomas's Church in Southwark was in fact built in 1822, rather surprisingly today it is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Whilst this seems odd, the Operating Theatre has been open to the public since 1962, when, having been rediscovered in 1957, it was opened to the public after 100 years standing empty.

As part of the celebrations, today you can visit for free and whilst the usual entry fee of £6 is well worth it, it is always nice to save money. The Operating Theatre and museum are open today from 10.30am to 5.00pm.
