Guy’s Hospital is located by The Shard in central London, making it convenient for patients to visit, as well as having neighbouring Borough Market, South Bank and Tate Modern to explore.

Established in the 1720s, Guy’s Hospital has grown vastly in size, including our 34-storey Tower Wing that is the site of many of our dedicated clinical research facilities.

Guy’s Hospital is home to several notable innovations, including the invention of tissue typing – now crucial for successful organ transplantation.
