Upminster Garden Centre

Character and charm are what makes people return time and time again to Upminster Garden Centre. A stone’s throw from the M25, the centre lies equidistant between Brentwood and Upminster. The great service and friendly atmosphere together with the best range of plants, provides customers with an excellent shopping experience.

Roots and Shoots was founded in the 1940s by Len Brothers. In 1987 the garden centre was destroyed by the ‘Great Storm’ and the site was extensively redeveloped. In 1996 the centre was sold to the Wyevale Garden Centre chain and then in 2006 was sold to Country Gardens. Despite humble beginnings it has evolved into the thriving centre it is today. The centre also boasts a busy and inviting restaurant which sells freshly prepared home-cooked meals as well as a wide range of hot and cold drinks.

Old Operating Theatre Museum

The Operating Theatre is found in the roof space of an English Baroque Church. At first glance this placement seems bizarre. It makes more sense when it is realised that the wards of the South Wing of St. Thomas’ Hospital were built around St. Thomas’ Church.

Placing the Theatre in the Herb Garret of the Church provided a separation from the ward. It gave a separate entrance for students, and afforded a measure of sound proofing. In 1815 the Apothecary’s Act, which required apprentice apothecaries to attend at public hospitals, meant that hordes of students poured in to watch operations.

Another really unusual and interesting place to visit!
