  • Visitor Information

Founded in 1707, the Society of Antiquaries has the largest collection of portraits of English medieval and Tudor monarchs outside the National Portrait Gallery. Set up to preserve and enable a better understanding of cultural heritage, the society does just that from Burlington House, its historic premises in Piccadilly. Established before the foundation of national museums and galleries, the collection was transformed both in size and quality by bequest of the Thomas Kerrich in 1828. Today the Society helps conserve and develop the research and educational potential of the buildings, collections and library at Burlington House and Kelmscott Manor. The Pre-Raphaelite and Old Master collections at the Cotswold retreat of William Morris offer a unique insight into his occupancy of the Oxfordshire house.
