Tour of the Royal Society
The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.
The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas.
The Library & Archives at the Royal Society in London contain extensive collections of the most incredible and precious manuscripts, papers and records, books and journals.
As part of this event, Library staff gave an hour-long guided tour around the Royal Society building and its public exhibition spaces.
This event was part of the History of Science series, an exclusive programme of in-person visits for Members. Each event gives Members of Friends of Imperial College and their guests unique access to facilities with our Behind-the-Scenes events in Imperial and beyond.
