I visited primarily to view an exhibition, but hoping to see more and learn of the history of the society. I had previously visited the Institute for Civil Engineers and had expected something similar, so I was a little disappointed. The exhibition was excellent, the...More

Amazing history. The RGS is a iconic corner stone for many historic expeditions and cultivates the imagination of many to do research and exploration.
There are amazing archives and exhibitions. Which can be visited look on their website.
Worth a visit if you are passing.
I came across this by accident on my way to the Royal Albert Hall.There is an interesting exhibition about the almost forgotten role of south asians in the first world war.There are explanatory panels which reveal the stories of many of these unsung heroes.
I discovered this place some years ago, and felt immediately in love. Every time I visit it, there is some new, creative and inspiring, exhibition going on. But this year’s Environmental Photographer of the Year 2016 exhibition was amazing, moving and provocative. Brilliant!
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
