In 2008, the Royal Academy Schools celebrated their 240th birthday; the oldest art school in the United Kingdom. Located in the heart of London’s West End, only a few minutes walk from Piccadilly Circus or Green Park, this central location offers an exciting atmosphere in which to study.
The Schools is an integral part of the Royal Academy of Arts, situated between Burlington House (which is home to the galleries of the Royal Academy) and Burlington Gardens. In recent years, a host of high profile galleries have returned to the West End, enabling easy access to the commercial gallery circuit.
Complementing these galleries are some of London’s major museums - The National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and the ICA are all within walking distance. The Serpentine, Hayward Gallery and both Tate Britain and Tate Modern can all be reached by a short tube or bus ride.
