The area
Neighbourhood: Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.

Sorry but being a south Asian woman. I feel attacked for even being here. The colour of my skin was definitely a problem. If you’re a person of colour, don’t be shocked if the first thing you see is a white man questioning why you’re there. The proceeded to follow me and my mother.

It’s more of a vast estate than just a building, housing the marvellous (and free to enter, apart from the major exhibitions) Royal Academy of Arts and five learned Societies.
I come here about 3 or 4 times a year mainly to attend exhibitions at the Royal Academy, but have also attended events and lectures at some of the other institutions.
Even if you don’t have much time to spare it’s worth wandering into the courtyard to take in the scene, or enter the RA itself to view, amongst other treasures, a Michelangelo sculpture and a life size copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ - completely free of charge.

Very clean, unfortunately the restaurant had closed due to a private event but staff were very helpful in directions to another one. Actual venue for the lecture was the Chemistry library, staff again helpful in directing to the correct room. Very enjoyable lecture

Visited here were a great my royal institutes are based. All except for the Royal Academy of Arts was open and they some some very fine sculptures and paintings on display. Many of the exhibits are copies, as an aid for teaching and I especially enjoyed the copy of "The Last Supper". There's always exhibitions going on that require a fee, but there's plenty to art to see if you're looking for a budget friendly way to spend time here.

The building is also very fine, worthy of all the royal institutes housed here.

Fabulous buildings, excellent guides. It was busy but not overbearing. The displays for the Open House weekend were interesting, lots of short chats possible with stall holders. The tour is well laid out, quite a few stairs but worth the effort. The architecture is interesting and the information on restoration excellent.

My wife and I visited this site as part of the Open House weekend. It was not crowded and there was no queue to go in. The tour was easy to follow, allowing us to see lovely old books in bookcases in fascinating rooms. In some rooms there were videos informing us about the Royal Society of Chemistry. There were also tables at which volunteers were demonstrating various "simple" scientific (chemical) experiments - a great attraction to the children and even many adults!

The library was particularly interesting with an old iron spiral staircase (original) in one corner.

A very enjoyable hour.

Great building. Has many "ROYAL" establishments like Royal Society of Chemistry, The Linnean Society, Society of Antiquaries, Royal Academy of Arts, cultural courtyard, Since 1854, Burlington House has been home to these societies. They do many programs of public events and activities. A nice place to spend some time.
