On 17 and 18 September 2011, the Royal Society opens its doors to the public as part of Open House London, the capital's biggest architectural festival.
On Saturday 17 September and Sunday 18 September, visitors will be able to take a guided architectural tour of the Society's building. Tours will begin every 20 minutes on a first-come-first served basis, with a maximum of 15 people in each group.
It will also be possible to visit the building without pre-booking and to take a self-guided tour of the special exhibition, Arabick Roots.
Open House is a simple but powerful concept: hundreds of great buildings of all types and periods open up their doors to all, completely for free.
This unique opportunity to access and understand architecture is a challenge to look at everyday buildings anew, and communicates the value of a well-designed city to everybody who uses it. For more information visit the Open House website.
