The lady at the information booth directed me to the chapel to see the exhibit. I enjoyed learning the history of the hospital... More

Dedicated staff doing remarkable work. A hidden medical gem in the heart of Bath. Thousands of locals and tourists pass by unknowingly, innocent of the skill, care and attention behind the entrance doors.
