This is an exciting development on Euston Rd, or should've been. But I think UNISON's attempt to frame this woman's esteemed career and life within the perspective of today's trade unionist's and Labour Party is utilitarian. There isn't a huge amount to see although the...More

This small museum occupies two rooms of the unison building. It's free to visit and well worth it. The displays tell you the history or both Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and the hospital she founded. Important not only because she was the first female doctor to...More

I found this place when walking from Euston to the British Library - it's about mid way between the two. I'd never heard of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson but have talked about her since my visit. She was a very admirable and innovative woman, the first...More

I saw the sign and was so pleased I went in. It is extremely well done with interactive displays. A must for anyone interested in social history. Fabulous find which should be known about! I was the only one there as well.

Now a trade union building, the site was the home of a famous women's hospital - there was outcry when there were plans to knock it down. EG Anderson worked all her life for women and especially for the training of female doctors. The exhibits...More
