Book a Public Tour at Society of Antiquaries!
Tuesday, 17 October
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.
