Of Discovery

“The Royal Geographical Society’s Collections span over 500 years of exploration and geographical endeavour. Whilst our ability to travel is temporarily on hold, I find no better way to explore the world than through these remarkable photographs, books, artefacts, maps and archival items. They divert, inform and inspire me in equal measure to dream about future opportunities for new destinations and adventures. It is our pleasure to be able to share these remarkable exploration stories with you.”


Alasdair Macleod, Head of Enterprise and Resources at the Royal Geographical Society
