Easter closure and access to collections

Between Good Friday 3 April and Easter Monday 6 April 2015 (dates inclusive) all Library sites, sevices and collections will be closed. Normal service and hours resume on Tuesday 7 April 2015. 

Please note that the rest of 66 Portland Place and the Victoria and Albert Museum will continue to be open over Easter.

Some collection items temporarily unavailable in 2015

Due to building work, some items from our collections (including our archives, books, drawings, journals and photographs) have been moved and are currently unavailable. We hope to restore full access by late spring/early summer 2015. Please check this page for more details or contact us if you have any queries.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and co-operation during this period.

Everyone is welcome and entry is free to the British Architectural Library and its collections and learning programmes located at the RIBA's headquarters (66 Portland Place) and at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Both sites are open to the public and have a range of facilities for all visitors, including wi-fi access and lockers. From here find out all you need to know before your visit, including our opening hours and admission policies (photographic ID or prior booking may be required for some sites).

Visitor noticeThere are changes in access to some of our sites and collections at 66 Portland Place and the V&A in place until 2017. Until late May 2015 our Study Rooms at the V&A will not be open on Thursdays.
