The Burlington Project is our biggest expansion in more than 150 years. Join Burlington Appeal Manager, Joseph Green for a tour of the site and hear all about how we’ll be celebrating our 250th anniversary in 2018.

Get ready for our first ever Friends Week – seven days of specially planned events, activities and exclusive tours, just for you. See us up close like never before: learn, discover and marvel.

There is so much more to the Royal Academy than our world-class exhibitions programme, so step beyond our galleries and hear from our trusted Red Collars and our esteemed Academicians, take a tour of our historic library and brush up your own skills with an expert-led life drawing class in our very first Friends Week.
