Curious about BURLINGTON HOUSE in London, the Royal Academy of Art?

Jump to last reply

I just read a review in the Boston Globe of an art exhibit “Constable, Gainsborough, Turner and the Making of Landscape” at the Royal Academy of Art at Burlington House (near Piccadilly) December – February, 2013. Sounds great.

So I checked out the BURLINGTON HOUSE and found that the property also houses five learned societies including:
• Geological Society of London (Piccadilly/east wing)
• Linnean Society of London (Piccadilly/west wing)
• Royal Astronomical Society (west wing)
• Society of Antiquaries of London (west wing)
• Royal Society of Chemistry (east wing)

According to its website, “Burlington House is most familiar to the general public as the venue for the Royal Academy's temporary art exhibitions.” I expect to check upcoming shows to see what is offered in late spring when I hope to return to London.

Just wondering what your impressions are if you have visited the Royal Academy of Arts or attended events at any of the other five “learned” societies.

So much to do and see in London…
