Tower Room

Tower Room

Built in 1873 as an occasional meeting room “for Miscellaneous Societies”, the Tower Room at the Linnean Society is situated high in the huge Archway to Burlington House courtyard. With beautiful original features, this light and airy room showcases a set of large wooden cabinets that originally housed Carl Linnaeus’ important biological specimens and publications. A self-contained and quiet space, the Tower Room overlooks both the Burlington House Courtyard and the bustle of Piccadilly.
