Visit to the Royal Institution

Thursday 25th April @ 9:30 am to 5:00 pm

A London walk  to the Royal Institution (free entry), and other mystery places of interest, including a free visit to the Collection Gallery at the Royal Academy of Arts. Julie and myself will be co-leading the walk.

The Royal Institution of Great Britain (often the Royal Institution, abbreviated Ri or RI) is an organisation for scientific education and research. Throughout its history, the Institution has supported public engagement with science through a programme of lectures, many of which continue today. The most famous of these are the annual Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, founded by Michael Faraday in 1825, which are televised every year on the BBC. You will also be able to see the actual laboratory where Michael Faraday made some of his fundamental discoveries and you will also get to visit a museum in the RI, showing various discoveries made there.

We will be meeting at East Croydon station 9.30 am, hoping to catch the 9.45 am train Plat 4, to Victoria station. We will be walking from Victoria to the Royal Institution near Green Park. There are toilets at Victoria station and at our destinations. I suggest you bring refreshments, in which you can have the opportunity to have them in the seating area of the courtyard at the Royal Academy of Arts. There are also cafes inside the Royal Institution and the Royal Academy of Arts. After, we are planning to walk around St James’ Park and then walk back to Victoria, and find a pub there in Victoria.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.

Kind regards,
