RIBA Friends of Architecture

The best way for anyone who loves architecture and design to get the most out of our events, exhibitions and more.


From activities that lift the lid on architecture and design to discounts on talks and lectures from leading lights in the industry, our monthly events programme has plenty for everyone. Friends have access to our architectural walking tours, behind the scenes visits to some of our most iconic buildings and curator-led tours of our exhibitions.


Each spring and autumn, Friends receive the brilliant A Magazine for RIBA Friends, delivered to their door. With guest contributors and choice features, we’ll keep you up to date with all the latest architecture news, available exclusively to our Friends.


With a flash of your Friends card, you’ll receive discounts in our stylish restaurant, café, renowned bookshop and on orders placed on RIBApix.


Every month, Friends receive an e-newsletter with all the latest news and details on upcoming events from the heart of the RIBA.
