Description

Guided tours of 66 Portland Place

Where was the idea for the RIBA conceived? Which Monarch gave us our Royal Charter? Which city’s name is carved into our walls? Why did the RIBA cause a traffic jam? Which famous architects and actors have walked these floors? Visit the home of architecture and hear about the places and faces behind 66 Portland Place.

Architect George Grey Wornum’s winning design for the RIBA is both beautiful and functional and our dedicated tour guides will walk you through our fascinating art-deco building to explore the writings on our walls and see the wealth of materials that make up our intricate interiors. As well as looking at our magnificent architecture, we will offer you an insight into the architecture profession and the RIBA’s role in championing great architecture. The tour will conclude with a look into our collections material relating to the design and construction of the building.

Tours will be taking place on select Tuesday evenings (6.30pm-7.30pm) and Saturday afternoons (2.30pm-3.30pm):

  • Saturday 11 May 2.30pm
  • Tuesday 28 May 6.30pm
  • Saturday 8 June 2.30pm
  • Tuesday 25 June 6.30pm
