Linnean Society visit plus optional walk

Carl Linnaeus is famous for his work in taxonomy: the science of identifying, naming and classifying organisms. This is fundamental to the fossil record.

We will have a 90-minute tour of the Linnean Society in Piccadilly starting at 14.30pm. It will begin with a short talk then a visit to the archives followed by time in the library/exhibition area. Tickets: £15, or £12 for over 65s.

It will be preceded by an optional walk along Piccadilly, St James’s Street and Pall Mall to look at the variety of building stones. For this, we will travel on the non-stop 9.33am train from Letchworth to Kings Cross. Alternatively, if coming from a different station, you can meet us in a Piccadilly coffee shop (details will be provided when your booking is confirmed).

There are only 12 places so booking will be restricted to LALG members only.  If you would like to come please email Carrie (
