I Am Human – a walking tour of The Royal London Hospital en

Welcome to I Am Human. This audio walking tour will guide you around The Royal London Hospital and the Medical College in Whitechapel. You will be led by Joseph Merrick, the ‘Elephant Man’, his friend, the surgeon Frederick Treves, the Hospital’s Matron Eva Luckes, and a medical student, who crossed paths here in the 1880s. Based on archive sources, the tour brings to life the drama of street and hospital in Victorian Whitechapel at a time of unprecedented innovations in medicine, training and patient care.  

Begin the tour at number 259 Whitechapel Road, directly opposite the old Royal London Hospital building.

Please note that access to the Garrod Building in part 2 is by the use of stairs at the front entrance. For access to the building via a ramp please contact the Royal London Hospital Museum in advance of your visit.
