The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is home to one of the world’s finest geographical Collections with over two million items, including maps, photographs, books, documents, paintings, and artefacts, spanning 500 years of geography, travel and exploration.
Make your event even more special and give your guests an incredible opportunity to discover some of the Society’s fascinating historical items with one of our private view packages.
Our packages have been carefully curated for an engaging guest experience, from our Endurance platinum prints, a remarkable collection of original photographic glass and celluloid negatives captured by Frank Hurley, the official photographer on Shackleton’s Endurance expedition, to our Icons of Exploration display showcasing original items of clothing and equipment that some of the world’s greatest explorers employed to plan and deliver their expeditions.
Private view packages can be added to all types of events, so get in touch with our experienced venue hire team for more details.
Thank you for hosting a wonderful evening of discovery at the RGS last night. The feedback has been great from the warm hospitality, the historic venue, great food and fantastic artefacts and explanation. Really inspiring and something people will really cherish.
