Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
9 Queen Street, EH2 1JQ Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Visit a spectacular building and discover how diseases and treatments fell in and out of favour in Edinburgh and beyond. Learn how the breaking of taboos over things like heavy drinking, overeating and sexual promiscuity gave rise to the prevalence of diseases like syphilis, lethargy, gout and consumption. The College’s fascinating early medical texts and illustrations will show how rising consumerism and increasing leisure time (for some) made popular the celebrity doctor, fashionable spa treatments and cocktail parties.
