Books available from the RIBA Bookshop
Our HQ is a fine Grade II-listed 1930s building, designed by Grey Wornum, at the junction of Portland Place and Weymouth Street in London W1. It is just up the road from the BBC's Broadcasting House HQ, near Regents Park, and close to Great Portland Street and Oxford Circus underground stations.
The building also houses a café with outdoor terrace, galleries hosting exhibitions, lecture theatres for talks, and is home to the finest architectural library in the world. Rooms - from small meeting rooms to grand halls - can be hired out for functions, conferences or seminars.
The British Architectural Library is open to members and to non-members on production of proof of identity. Visitors of all ages are welcome, and we hope to see you soon!
