COVID-19 Notice (updated March 2021)

The Linnean Society continues to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in coordination with the rest of the Burlington House community and in line with UK Government guidelines. As part of our COVID-19 response, our staff are in the building intermittently.

Following the Government’s announcement on 22 February, the Linnean Society hopes to reopen its Library and Archives to visitors—by appointment only—from 14 April. Our initial opening hours will be restricted to two days a week: Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10:30am–3:30pm. If you would like to make an appointment, please contact us at to discuss your visit.

The Society's public lectures, conferences, tours, and other events will 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.
