Explore:
Me and a mate decided to explore St Thomas Medical School after a quick scout on the outside. Some scrappy entry, wandering and opening things later we managed to get in. An absolutely huge place, which you don't expect. We knew it was big, but not this big - so big we ran out of time to explore the whole thing. A rather chilled explore compared to most, once we were in we seemed to be very out of sight.

History:
The building was part of St Thomas' Hospital which was established in 1173. According to historical records St Thomas's Hospital Medical School was founded in about 1550. It was admitted as a school of the University of London in 1900 but remained a constituent part of St Thomas' Hospital until 1948 when it formally became part of the university. In 1982 it merged with the medical school at Guy's Hospital to form the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. In turn UMDS was absorbed by King's College London School of Medicine and Dentistry, but the dentists have since been split out into The Dental Institute.
