Celebrate the bicentenary year of the pioneer of modern nursing, with a walking tour and visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum. Join a Blue Badge Guide and discover Nightingale’s London as you walk in the footsteps of the world’s most famous nurse. The 2.5 hour tour will reveal aspects of the incredible life she led, through the places in which she lived and worked.
