Come and explore the gorgeous 19th century building of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, all from the comfort of your own home! Join us for an exclusive online tour of the College building.
Our College was founded in 1599 with the grant of a charter from King James VI of Scotland to surgeon, Peter Lowe. This established a body to examine all professing the art of surgery in Glasgow and South West Scotland. In our beautifully decorated building you can see historic medical instruments, rare books and art, and find out how we’ve helped doctors, surgeons and dentists to stay at the cutting edge for over 400 years.
