Michael Por­tillo (left) is hopping off the train to dis­cover the se­crets of some of Bri­tain’s aban­doned his­toric sites and build­ings. His first stop is the Royal Lon­don Hos­pi­tal, which was built 250 years ago and closed in 2013. Among its most fa­mous pa­tients was Joseph Mer­rick, aka the Ele­phant Man, whose skele­ton re­mains part of the hos­pi­tal’s col­lec­tion.
