    “The King’s Sanatoriumâ€￾ was founded in 1901 to care for those suffering from consumption (aka tuberculosis) and was officially opened on the 13th June 1906 by His Majesty King Edward VII, who gave assent for the institution to be called the King Edward VII Sanatorium.

    At the time when the sanatorium was designed it was heralded as a significant advancement in the treatment of the sick, where the importance of rest, relaxation, fresh air and light were incorporated into the buildings and surroundings.

    The hospital was designed by Charles Holden and Percy Adams. Charles Holden went on to become a leading English architect who is best known for his designs in the 1920s and 1930s of London Underground stations.

    The elegant gardens of the King Edward VII Hospital were designed by the highly acclaimed garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll.

    The hospital was highly acclaimed in the architectural press when completed. It was said to be ‘one of the three finest of the time’.

    Despite it being a large site it's pretty devoid of features inside but it does have a superb warren of tunnels beneath the hospital.
