London visitor card holders might like to take a trip around the fascinating Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum.

Regarded as the birthplace of penicillin, after Mr Fleming's groundbreaking discovery in 1928, the museum features a recreation of the original laboratory.

The museum is located within St Mary's Hospital in London, which is easily accessible for those with London passes.

"Fleming discovered the antibiotic penicillin at St Mary's Hospital in 1928, a breakthrough that revolutionised medicine and earned him a Nobel Prize," said Imperial College Healthcare, a trust of the NHS.

"Visitors to the museum can see Fleming's laboratory, restored to its 1928 condition and explore the story of Fleming and the discovery and development of penicillin."

The drug can however have a number of side-effects, including seizures, fever and instances of vomiting.

London Pass holders can receive free entry to the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum.
