Public Lectures and Tours

We launched our public lecture series in 2012 as a way to share the work of the Society and the work of Fellows of the Society with the public. The series is a key part of our public outreach, and provides visitors with a unique  opportunity to explore the ground floor of our Burlington House apartments. A large selection of our paintings are on display in the ground floor rooms, alongside museum objects such as the processional cross found on Bosworth Field.

Unless stated otherwise, lectures take place at Burlington House, London, at 1-2pm on Tuesday afternoons (doors open at 12.30). Lectures are free and open to the public, but space is limited and booking is recommended.

Public Tours

We host Guided Public Tours on Tuesday mornings. You can find more information (and reserve your place) here. Talks are free and tours cost £10, each event must be booked separately.
