Join us for a unique opportunity to visit the historic apartments of the Society of Antiquaries of London at Burlington House and to learn about the history of one of Britain's oldest learned societies – a perfect way to spend a morning in Central London! This is a special chance to see our meeting rooms and library and to view some of the remarkable artefacts contained in the Society's collections. Also on display collection of Tudor portraiture including a famous portrait of Mary I by Hans Eworth and two 16th-century portraits of Richard III (one of which is probably the earliest-surviving copy of a portrait painted in Richard’s lifetime!).

Guests are served coffee and tea upon arrival and the intimate tour (1.5 hours) is led by Anthony Davis MA (Oxon.), MA (Lond.), who is a Fellow and a Trustee of the Society and a qualified guide.

Most tours take place on a morning coinciding with one of our monthly public lectures; to attend both a tour and a public lecture on the same day, please book each separately (tours are £10.00 per person, but public lectures are free). We look forward welcoming you to Burlington House soon!
