The RGS is one of my very favourite gallery spaces and open libraries in London. I recently attended the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition. It is honestly one of the best photography exhibitions around. The photos are part of a competition with thousands of submissions from around the world, so those on display really are the best of the best. Along with the some of the pictures, my very favourite part was the hilarious location signs dotted around the grounds, Mordor anyone!?

This building is the perfect blend of old and new, both architecturally and philosophically. The old map rooms (and the old maps) are cherished to behold, but they put some remarkable exhibitions on in their very modern gallery at street level. I went to a lecture here as well - a very inspiring space. I very much recommend a tour - though you won't see some bits unless you book the space for a specific purpose :-)

I came here to see the free exhibition of the Travel Photographer of the year award entires and was incredibly pleased with the layout (on multiple floors and terrains), its range of photographs and descriptions, its interactive activities (a yart/tent and a video summary of all the photographic and video entries), and the popup (and well priced) drinks and snacks stall from where I met the founder's friendly brother. This seemed like a good events space but if it wasn't for the exhibition I'm not sure I'd be back again.

I came here for the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition and it was great. The building is an interesting mixture of traditional and contemporary architecture and also has a very nice garden. I don't know how you can get access to the rest of it, but I will try to find out in the future.

Aside from the exhibitions by the main entrance, this venue regularly hosts all kinds of amazing talks about the world around us across its many rooms. I've heard everything from adventurous tales from intrepid explorers in their more intimate spaces to inspirational stories of forgiveness (via The Forgiveness Project's annual lectures) in the main lecture theatre. Great venue.

The RGS always has interesting exhibitions on in the space by the entrance. However, you must become a member / fellow for the real treat - regular lectures from fascinating people, access to an extensive library and support for your next antarctic expedition.
