Open House weekend 2015



The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


On Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 September 2015, the Royal Society opened its doors to the public as part of Open House London, the capital's biggest architectural festival.

The Royal Society

Visitors were able to take a guided architectural tour of the Society's building, listen to history of science lectures and view exhibits.

Open House is a simple but powerful concept: hundreds of great buildings of all types and periods open up their doors to all, completely without charge. 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.
