Meeting Room

Under the watchful gaze of our original portraits of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, our historic Meeting Room is the cornerstone of the Linnean Society. Beautifully decorated in the neo-classical style, this room is a mix of both charm and grandeur. The Meeting Room is a calm and contemplative space, only yards from Piccadilly.
