History of the building
The original Burlington House was built around 1670 by Sir John Denham for Richard Boyle, lst Earl of Burlington. The building was purchased by the Government in 1854 as a home for The Royal Academy of Arts and the learned societies, including the Geological. The Society’s apartments were completed to the designs of Charles Barry and R.R. Banks between 1869 and 1873 in an unusual example of Victorian classical architecture.
