The students enjoyed their day at the specialist library

Wellcome Collection is the free visitor destination for the incurably curious. It explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future. The venue offers visitors contemporary and historic exhibitions and collections, lively public events, and the world-renowned Wellcome Library.


Established under Sir Henry's will in 1936, Wellcome is a global charitable foundation, which aims to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive. Politically and financially independent, Wellcome supports scientists and researchers to take on big problems, fuel imaginations and spark debate.

Part of Wellcome Collection, the Library has more than 750,000 books and journals and an extensive range of manuscripts, archives and films. The Library also includes Wellcome Images, a major visual collection.

Through its collections and services, the Wellcome Library provides insight and information to anyone seeking to understand medicine and its role in society, past and present. More than 30,000 readers visit each year, including historians, academics, students, health professionals and members of the general public.
