Our Collections comprise over two million documents, maps, photographs, paintings, periodicals, artefacts and books, and span 500 years of geography, travel and exploration.

Please note that the Society’s Annual International Conference will take place over four days from Tuesday 29 August to Friday 1 September 2017 inclusive (immediately following the August Bank Holiday). The Foyle Reading Room will remain open to Society members throughout the Conference.  However, with around 2,000 international geographers at the Society’s headquarters, there will be some disruption to normal services and non-members are kindly requested to book visits and appointments for alternative dates by contacting enquiries@rgs.org
