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 – such as a world-class 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.



One of our monthly free public lectures will take place following this tour. To attend both this tour and the public lecture on the same day, please book each separately (tours are £10.00 per person, but public lectures are free). Space is limited for both tours and lectures, and early booking is recommended!

We look forward welcoming you to Burlington House soon! To see other tour dates, please visit www.sal.org.uk/tours or browse the event listings at www.sal.org.uk/events.
