Welcome to The London Society

The Society welcomes everyone
with an interest in
the Past, the Present
and the Future of London

Since its foundation in 1912, the Society has been active in reviewing and commenting on the planning and development of London, as well as in conservation. The Society continues to pursue the objectives of its founders who were concerned with “advancing the practical improvement and artistic development of London”. The Society thus works to stimulate appreciation of London, to encourage excellence in planning and development, and to preserve its amenities and the best of its buildings.

The Society pursues these objectives by reviewing Strategic Planning Proposals and contributing to the discussion of outstanding issues. It regularly considers Planning Applications and where appropriate expresses approval, submits comments or suggests improvements.

With over 3,500 items, our library provides a valuable resource for research into the history of London. Join us on our visits to places of significance and interest around London.
