Our adult learning programme offers a range of exciting opportunities to explore, discuss, debate and be inspired by great architecture. Subjects and themes are drawn from RIBA’s unsurpassed collections of original drawings, models, photographs and rare books and are brought to life through creative challenges that encourage participants to see the world around them in a new way. Our courses and workshops are designed for anyone with a wish to explore their own passions or interests further, or who simply wants to try something new.

Our courses, workshops, tours and talks are led by established architects, artists and educators and are informed by RIBA’s own expertise in architectural history, culture and practice. These are a mixture of day-long and weekend-long courses that look at architecture through disciplines such as drawing, photography, model making and other creative activities.

We also arrange private building tours and community visits for groups to 66 Portland Place.
