It was amazing to see rooms filled with paintings and busts of Shackleton and Scott among others; the building could use a bit of tender loving care (and their rubbish website) but it's amazing to be part of something that Mallory, Shackleton and Scott worked with. Below are some pictures we sneakily took (not sure if we were allowed!)
A Royal Geographical Society chair!
John Hunt (Everest 1953 Expedition leader) and the Everest model used in post 1953 lectures
Another corner of the map room
Captain Robert Falcon Scott
The building is extremely impressive and I look forward to my next visit soon. The Royal Geographical Society is steeped in history and its members have done so much for Geography and Exploration.
