Architectural Aspirations: a guided tour of the RIBA in Greater London on Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 1830 - 1930
Visit the home of architecture and hear about the places and faces behind RIBA's headquarters at 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 an introduction to our 'Making It Happen' exhibition in the Architecture Gallery.

For Tuesday evening tours, you are entitled to one free glass of wine/beer or soft drink from our bar on the ground floor. To redeem, simply present your ticket before placing your order.

Please note that due to refurbishment work the council chamber and 4th floor landing will not be available to view.

Standard Ticket £10.
