Florence Nightingale in England Tour


MOSH is proud to partner with Jon Baines Tours and UNF Brooks College of Health for Florence Nightingale in England. On this 7 day historical tour, follow in the footsteps of Florence Nightingale and bring her remarkable story to life.

This tour immerses you in her life in England, before she travelled to the battlefields of the Crimea and the hospital at Scutari in Istanbul, where the wounded arrived in their thousands to be treated. It was the shocking conditions that she encountered during the war that spurred her on in her campaign to improve conditions in army hospitals, which continued throughout her life and helped establish modern nursing practice. In London, which formed the centre of her professional life, hear how she campaigned for improvements in health care, hygiene and nursing. Travel to Hampshire in southern England and visit grand Embley Park, a former home of the wealthy Nightingale family and the Nightingale family burial site, as well as one of her childhood homes in Lea Hurst in Derbyshire. Throughout the tour you will hear talks from your tour leader, Natasha McEnroe, Director of the Florence Nightingale Museum, as well as local experts.

A portion of the ticket prices supports MOSH and its mission to inspire the joy of lifelong learning. For more information about the tour, download the brochure or visit website today.
