Royal Academy of Arts, London

Explore the Royal Academy of Arts on your university or college trip to London.

Founded by George III in 1768, The Royal Academy of Arts has a unique role as an independent, privately funded institution.

Celebrating 250 years of heritage, the academy is opening up like never before, with brand new galleries and for the first time, free displays of art and architecture.

Led by leading artists and architects, it is their purpose to promote the creation and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.

Groups can visit and see a diverse range of permanent and temporary exhibitions. Plus, as the gallery is home to the UK’s longest established art school, we can also organise an art class or workshop for your group.
