Need inspiration? Here's just a taste of the art and architecture that's on offer around the new RA.
The new RA has even more places to meet, eat and drink. Stop for a quick coffee, a lazy lunch or dinner and drinks.
Home to the UK’s longest established art school, the RA has always had making at its heart. Come and try an art class or workshop, or find inspiration to create at home.
Run by artists, we’re a platform for independent points of view about art and culture, and we’d love to exchange ideas with you.
