Guests travelled through time when the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), held a summer festival to celebrate its 500th anniversary.
 
Attendees sampled five centuries of gastronomic delights and new world cuisine at the Regent's Park venue, while getting hands on with the foodie experts and finding out how physicians have been at the heart of many historical developments. 
 
This year sees the RCP mark its 500th anniversary having been first established by Thomas Linacre, Henry VIII’s physician, who persuaded the king to found a college to regulate the practice of medicine in 1518.

Natacha Allen, head of sales and marketing at the RCP, said: “2018 marks a truly unique milestone so we were determined to pull out all the stops to celebrate. We trawled the college archives to find the most exciting figures from the history and I am delighted that our future guests will get to experience the type of hospitality that has made us legendary.”
