Heritage Open Day
Royal Holloway, University of London, welcomes the public to explore its spectacular Grade I listed Founder's Building, Picture Gallery, Chapel and extensive grounds. The Founder's Building, commissioned by entrepreneur, Thomas Holloway and opened by Queen Victoria in 1886, is modelled on the Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley. Its flamboyant architecture makes it one of the most impressive university buildings in the world.
The Emily Wilding Davison Building, located to the east side of the Founder's Building, will act as the welcome and information point for our Heritage Open Day. The Emily Wilding Davison Building is the home of the university's archive collections and also features a cafe for our visitors to enjoy.
Tour details will follow shortly.
