Wellcome Collection have produced a free iPhone app to accompany the Medical London: City of Diseases, City of Cures book. The app offers an audiovisual tour of Bloomsbury and the surrounding area, delving into the medical heritage quite literally on the Wellcome Library’s doorstep.
The original work by author Richard Barnett drew heavily on the Library’s holdings. Subtitled Blood, Guts, Brains and Babies, the tour begins at Lincoln’s Inn Fields and covers approximately three miles. On average it should take around two hours to complete, but of course depends on your pace – and how sidetracked you get.
