The medicinal garden has been designed to be a wonderfully calm space in the centre of London. One of the joys of the garden is its unique and bespoke collections of plants that offer living examples of the history of medicine, ranging from the era of the pyramids of Egypt to today’s life-saving prescription drugs.
The medicinal plant lecture series was started so we could share stories and information about the garden and the history of medicine. We are delighted to host these events 2-3 times throughout the year.
At each event, you can look forward to lectures given by speakers in the field.
The final event of 2023 will take place on 11 September 2023 and can be attended online via the RCP Player.
