  • Get away from the crowds further down Exhibition Road and visit this tranquil venue. It always has very strong photography exhibitions, either by vintage explorers or present day explorers. Discover far flung parts of the planet, and their indigenous peoples, and culture. The venue also hosts inspirational travel and exploration talks in the evening - checkout their website for detail.
  • I went to my first Monday evening lecture. Very interesting. Good questions from the audience. Great photographic exhibition, really amazing high definition photos of the Mountains of the Moon. Really felt I was there
  • Attended a conference here. I didn't get to visit the building in it's entirety. The conference was held in the lecture room which was quite comfortable. The screen and sound system were of good quality. There are historical facts along the walls, really quite interesting. Refreshments provided were ok. Facilities need upgrading. I would appreciate a thumbs up if you found this review helpful. Thank you 😊
  • Fantastic experience to listen to geographical speeches. Went to see the Road to Everest speech and the seats were very comfortable with books for purchase clearly indicated. Lovely place to be in especially in the heart of London.
  • I attended a conference here. Not a good experience. The tea and coffee was in a marquee, it was actually freezing in there. The toilets are well and truly in need of some urgent updating. The conference theatre is very good, with a large capacity.
