Founded in 1799, The Royal Institution is the oldest independent research body in the world. Describing itself as “where science meets the world”, it combines a vigorous outreach programme “diffusing science for the common purposes of life” with active research units.
Historically associated with distinguished names such as Faraday, Davy, Rutherford, both Huxleys and Haldane, it is housed in distinguished Grade 1 listed Georgian buildings which were recently refurbished by Terry Farrell and are alone worth the visit.
We will have a conducted tour covering elements of the history and architecture of the building, as well as telling the stories behind some of the exhibition displays. After, we can make our own way, aided perhaps by electronic guide.
