The hospital was built in Renaissance style with Jacobean and Flemish details. The Children's Ward has 20 tiled Nursery rhyme panels which were probably made by a firm called Maw's. These tiles are some of the best examples of early ceramic art work in children's wards. It is rare to find such panels still in place.
