MUSEUM AND EXHIBITION VISITORS

Admission to our museum and gardens is free. On arrival please sign in at our reception desk where you will be given directions and details of available rooms and exhibitions, as well as a free multimedia museum visitor guide packed with information about RCP history and architecture.

  • Facilities: A cloakroom is available. We don't have a café, however there are many cafés, pubs and restaurants within a 5–10 minute walk in Regent's Park (the refreshments you might see around the building are for pre-booked event delegates only).
  • Groups: Groups of six or more can visit the RCP but they must be led by one of our authorised guides. Please contact us at history@rcplondon.ac.uk to make arrangements.

Please note that the RCP is a busy conference venue and occasionally the exhibition gallery and other spaces will become crowded as delegates move around the building, particularly at lunchtime.
