The Society was founded in 1912 by a group of eminent Londoners concerned about the lack of planning in the capital. Today we continue to be the society for all those who love London and strive to be representative of the city and its communities.


Below you'll find our latest blog posts - use the menu above (the 'domino' block top right of the screen) to find out details of our forthcoming events, more about the history of the Society, as well as our aims and our membership.
