The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is the oldest medical college in England. Its collections relate to the history of the medical college, and to the physician’s profession. Collections range from portraits, providing a pictorial and sculptural record of presidents, fellows and other physicians associated with the RCP, from its foundation in 1518 to the present, the fascinating Symons collection of medical instruments, the Hoffbrand collection of apothecary jars and a rare set of six 17th century anatomical tables, which were the centre-piece of the award winning ‘Curious anatomy’s exhibition.

The Grade I listed RCP building, permanent collections and exhibitions are open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am–5pm. Entry is free of charge.
