  • Bethlem Gallery is steeped in living memoirs from those who had stays there, for reasons known to them. It has served to demystify the stigmas around mental health issues. I was overwhelmed by a sense of peace and calmness and after reading the many positive testimonies from some of the ex-clients who have used mental health services provided by the Bethlem Hospital, I was pleasantly surprised after seeing the amazing creativity by individual service users. Every cloud does have a silver lining!
  • A small museum with occasional exhibitions. An insightful view of how mental health has been seen and treated over the years.
  • Astonishing experiance! Loved every minite of it! One of the nicest and welcoming places ever visited! Cannot recomend more!
  • Lovely, little museum. A bit different from what you'll find in central London, but it's worth a visit. As it's a bit on the small side it won't take much of your time. Just a shame it's not open on the weekends.
  • A Museum and Art Gallery focusing on the on mental health and the history of mental health provision. Well laid out and thought provoking galleries which allow time to reflect on the information provided. Free talks every Saturday museum is open at 2pm, check website for details. Museum is needed as the topics raised need a wider audience to enable greater understanding in society.
