About the event

10.30am to 2pm, Wednesday 17 July 2019

Join us for what promises to be a pleasant and interesting visit to Dr Jenner's House, Museum & Garden situated in the very heart of the historic market town of Berkeley.

It is here that Edward Jenner lived and pioneered vaccination against smallpox leading to its eradication. Highlights include Jenner's study, artefacts and displays of his life's work, many other interests and the legacy he left behind concerning the eradication of disease. Outside we can explore the peaceful grounds including the Physic Garden and the Temple of Vaccinia where Jenner vaccinated local people free of charge.

After making our own way there we will be welcomed at the house at 10.30am for tea/coffee/biscuits and an introductory video before exploring the museum and garden at our own pace.

Please note there is ground floor wheelchair access but no lift to the upper floor. The garden is suitable for wheelchair users.
