St Bartholomew’s Hospital Museum and Archive

St Bartholomew’s Hospital, or Barts as it is popularly known, is one of the oldest and most distinguished hospitals in the world. It was founded in 1123 by the monk Rahere and granted by Henry VIII to the City of London in 1546. Thus Barts has been caring for the sick and the injured on its present site for almost nine centuries. Today the hospital forms part of Barts and the London NHS Trust. St Bartholomew’s Hospital Museum and Archives incorporates the finest hospital archives in Britain, an art collection incorporating works by Hogarth, Millais and Reynolds and a museum displaying many of the treasures of the hospital within the setting of the Grade I listed North Wing.
