> See details of Enterprising Women: The Garretts and their Circle by Elizabeth Crawford
The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Gallery, set within the beautifully restored former Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital building that now forms part of the new UNISON Centre, is now open to the public. The gallery is a permanent installation and uses a variety of media to set the story of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, her hospital, and women’s struggle to achieve equality in the field of medicine within the wider framework of 19th and 20th century social history. Interactive displays allow the visitor to discover more about the ‘Enterprising Women’ who followed Elizabeth Garrett into the medical profession – and into other spheres of British public life.
The gallery is very close to the Wellcome Collection, the British Library – and Euston and King’s Cross stations. Numerous bus routes pass the door.
Admission is free and the gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 9.00am to 6.00pm and on the first Saturday of every month 9.00am to 6.00pm.
An audio descriptive guide for the blind and partially sighted is available at the Reception Desk
