Student group visiting the RIBA


The British Architectural Library has a range of facilities to accomodate all types of groups at the RIBA (66 Portland Place) and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Both sites are open to the public. To make the most out of their visit, groups should contact the Library in advance as some facilities must be booked and access to some collections is by appointment only.

Educational visits

Groups from schools, colleges and higher education institutions should discuss their visits with the Education Curator to find out more about the Library's free education and learning programmes
