London’s Smallest House
At only 3 feet 6 inches wide, this house proudly boasts the title of “London’s Smallest House.” Located at 10 Hyde Park Place, this home is little more than an alleyway on the ground floor and a small bedroom on the first floor.
London Glassblowing Workshop
Admission is free to this working glassblowing studio and gallery. It may be hot as hell from the numerous ovens used to melt the glass, but it is not every day that you can watch the talented artists create works of art right before your eyes. Visit www.londonglassblowing.co.uk for more information.
The Old Operating Theater
This attraction is the oldest surviving operating theater and offers an extensive exhibition of surgical history. Located amongst the wooden beams in the roof of an English Baroque Church, you are likely to be transported back in time to an era before anesthesia and modern science and medicine. Ouch!
