Discover the history of the RCP medicinal garden

The history of the RCP's garden of medicinal plants is explored in the latest two episodes of our garden podcast.

You can listen to both parts on SoundCloud now. Previous recordings in the series, presented by RCP garden fellow Professor Anthony Dayan, are also available to download.

Situated within the grounds of RCP London adjacent to Regent's Park, the medicinal garden was redesigned in 2006 and is home to over 1,100 species of plant. It offers an illuminating window into the history, beliefs and culture of medicine through the ages.

Visit the garden

Between March and November you can enjoy a free guided tour of the garden on the first Wednesday of every month at 2pm. To book please call +44 (0)20 3075 1200.
