Visiting as a Friend and new safety measures in place:
Friends must pre-book their ticket online
Please note: advance booking is required for all visitors, including Friends, so we can deliver a safe and comfortable experience in the galleries.
Friends must bring their membership cards
For safety reasons, we ask all friends to bring their membership cards when they visit.
Friends have priority access
Friends can access every exhibition for free and will always be prioritised – but we ask that you book your tickets beforehand.
Friends of the RA can bring a family member
Please note: you must book their tickets beforehand.
Friends have a dedicated members’ area
Right now, the Keeper’s House is partially closed but we have reopened the Friends Lounge which has now moved back to the Sir Hugh Casson Room and Belle Shenkman Room where tea, filter coffee, drinks and snacks will be available.
