The Florence Nightingale Museum is housed inside St. Thomas’s Hospital, a short walk from Westminster Bridge.
Florence is widely regarded as the world’s first professional nurse, and St. Thomas’s is where she founded the first nurses’ training school in 1860.
The exhibit spans her entire life with personal letters, furniture and clothing from her premises – including her stuffed owl Athena. There is also a lot about her work with injured soldiers during the Crimean War, when she persuaded the authorities to set up a field hospital in Turkey. It was during this time that she earned the title lady with the lamp.
