Blood, Guts, Brains and Babies

If you’re a fan of Medical London, walking tours, or just wandering through London finding new places of historical interest, then you’ll probably like Wellcome Collection’s first foray into the world of iPhone apps. It goes by the name of Blood, Guts, Brains and Babies, and it’s a self-guided walk through the gory history of medicine in and around Bloomsbury, made together with our friends at City Stories Walks.

The app uses film, audio and photographs from our extensive archives to take you back in time, and bring the rich history of medicine in Bloomsbury to life. It continues our collaboration with Richard Barnett, who devised, wrote and presents the walk (and who will be leading some new Wellcome Collection walking tours this autumn – watch this space).

The app’s free, of course: you can download it from the Apple Store, and it will work on your iPhone or iPod Touch. If you don’t own such a device, you can follow the walk by printing out the PDF version, which comes complete with detailed descriptions and images.

The walk is a little over three miles, and takes about two hours to complete. We’d be interested to know what you think, or if you found anything else of interest along the walk that we’ve left out: leave us a comment below. You can also help us put together a bigger picture of medicine and London by contributing pictures to our Medical London Flickr pool.
