School visits to 66 Portland Place

Our workshops explore architecture in our iconic London headquarters, 66 Portland Place. We use our world-class collections and exhibitions, as well our historic 1930s building, to bring the curriculum to life. Activities include modelmaking, sketching and digital drawing on iPads.

Workshops are led by the RIBA Learning team in our brand new Clore Learning Centre. Workshops are 3 hours long and include a 30 minute lunch break. Space for lunch is provided. We can accommodate up to 30 students per group.

Architecture workshops at 66 Portland Place are free for state schools. Independent schools will be charged a modest fee to help us cover our costs.
