Science Gallery London is a part of King's College London and aims to engage the public with the university's cutting-edge research through collaborations with artists, designers and cultural organisations. It is a focal point for building new connections that will help King's remain relevant to, and part of the local communities around the university.

The building has a remarkable history, it was one of the wings of the 18th century historic Guy’s Hospital on St Thomas' Street. The hospital dates from 1721, when it was founded by philanthropist Thomas Guy. The building was almost entirely destroyed by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War.

Join LTS Architects for a tour of the building for Open House London as they take you on the journey to transform the space into Science Gallery London.

At the end of your tour, pop into the free ON EDGE: Living in an Age of Anxiety exhibition, and see how the gallery is inviting audiences to connect with and share their responses to King's research.
