St George’s Hospital

St George’s Hospital in Tooting is one of the biggest NHS hospitals in the country. Originally founded in 1733, it was based for two and a half centuries at what is now the Lanesborough Hotel, at the corner of Hyde Park. In the 18th century what was then known as Lanesborough House was an ideal location, on what was then the edge of London, next door to the fresh air and greenery of Hyde Park.
