Welcome to The Linnean Society of London

Coronavirus Update

COVID-19 Notice (updated 10 December 2021)

Following the government’s announcement on 8 December 2021, the Society will be closed to visitors from 13 December. The Society hopes to reopen on 10 January 2022, dependent on Government advice.

Please note, the library will remain closed for a further week for annual housekeeping. We hope to welcome you back to the library from 10am on 18 January 2022.

As part of our COVID-19 response, our staff are in the building intermittently. Many staff continue to work remotely, and there may be a delay in responding to enquiries.

The Society's public lectures, conferences, tours, and other events continue to be held virtually for the time being. Please check back for further updates.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support in these difficult times, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Burlington House soon.
