Old Operating Theatre

Now a museum, this was the first operating theatre to open in Britain, first slicing people 150 years ago. Set inside the creepy roof space of a church attached to St Thomas’ Hospital, medical students would come to watch operations (such as amputations in less than a minute) done without anaesthetic. Today you can book a tour to explore these macabre surroundings.

Mon-Sun 10.30am-5pm, £6

Smallest House in London

A weird sight to behold is this 3ft-tall 6in-wide building. It’s believed to have been built in 1805, between two other houses to block a passage through to St George’s graveyard to stop grave robbers digging up bodies.

There’s supposedly a tiny corridor and miniature bathroom on the first floor.

Kitty and the Bulldog

This kooky exhibition is all about how British fashion, namely the Victoriana, punk and Gothic periods, has influenced Japan’s oddball Lolita-esque and cutesy subculture (think brands such as Hello Kitty).

Expect OTT frills, headwear and eerie dolly makeup.

Dans Le Noir

Be completely in the dark about what you’re about to eat at this quirky restaurant – all they tell you is it’s two courses of ‘international cuisine’. Y

ou dine in darkness served by blind waiters. It’s a strange but fascinating experience, which aims to heighten your taste and smell senses.

And it’s also a giggle – try cutting up your steak when you can’t see your food.

Sun-Wed 6.30pm-10pm, Thurs-Sat  6.30pm-12am, £42
30-31 Clerkenwell Green, EC1R 0DU
