Fodor's Review

Dating back to 1934, this art deco gem, the home of British architecture, lies behind an elegant Portland Stone structure. Walk through the large bronze doors into a spacious lobby, where you'll find a new museum-quality gallery showcasing architecture-related exhibitions. The library is a research resource for all aspects of the profession while up the wide marble staircase is a gorgeous art deco restaurant. Guided tours of the building take place on the last Tuesday of every third month and it's best to book your place by email.
