The Institute of Chinese Medicine Library

The Institute of Chinese Medicine holds what is probably the finest collection of books and other materials related to Traditional Chinese medicine in Europe. The collection includes publications in Chinese and English and is maintained for the benefit of researchers and the general public alike and is open during weekdays between 10.00am and 7.00pm by appointment only. Access is free of charge.  Please contact reception to arrange a time to use the library.


The Institute of Chinese Medicine Herbal Specimen Museum

The Institute of Chinese Medicine maintains a unique collection of herbs and plants on site for the purposes of education (and, indeed, curiosity). This is the first collection of its kind in the UK and serves to inform the medical community and general public alike. The collection can be viewed at any time during normal opening hours.


Free Seminars

Traditional Chinese Medicine is used to treat a variety of medical conditions.  Since January 2007, the Institute has run an on-going seminar series on topics including skin conditions, infertility and allergy.  These seminars always involve one talk by a Western-trained specialist and one by a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner so that the conditions can be approached from both viewpoints.
