The area around Piccadilly Circus is famous for its shopping opportunities, and on the road of Piccadilly you will find famous brand names such as Fortnum & Mason and the Ritz Hotel, however, there is also a beautiful buildingピカデリー・サーカス周辺エリアはショッピング街として知られている。ピカデリー通りではフォートナム・アンド・メイソンやリッツホテルなど有名なブランド名を見つける事ができる。しかし、ここでは見逃す事のできない美しい建物がある。建物の正面はステート・ハウスに似ており、その堂々としたアーチ道を通ると小さな中庭に辿り着く。中庭の向かいにはバーリントン・ハウスの正面玄関が見え、玄関のすぐ中には風格のある光輝に満ちた階段が王立芸術院(ロイヤル・アカデミー・オブ・アーツ)のショップと展示室へと続いている。

which can’t be missed. The front part of the building is akin to a state house and upon entering through the grand archway one finds oneself in a small courtyard. Across the courtyard the main entrance to Burlington House can be found and just inside the entrance a truly royal, and splendorous, staircase can be seen which leads to the Royal Academy of Art’s shop and exhibition rooms.

The Royal Academy of Art moved to this building in 1867 in order to continue the goals under which it was founded in 1768, to establish a school for art and a place to exhibit for the public. Located behind Burlington House is a rather unique characteristic of the Royal Academy of Art, the Royal Academy Schools. Students at the schools are able to study a three year postgraduate course in fine art which is not available anywhere else in Europe. Furthermore, the students of the schools contribute to two major exhibitions every year including a final one at the end of their course.

Every summer the Royal Academy of Art has its world famous Summer Exhibition, after over 200 years it still welcomes submissions from all emerging and established artists working across many fields of media. For many people it isn’t just an opportunity to see new art as much as an opportunity to buy new art as the majority of works on shown are on sale. Across the rest of the year the main galleries host a variety of different exhibitions following different themes ranging from historical figures, the work of foreign artists and a wide range of different forms of art.

A permanent collection of art is also kept here, and although it is too extensive to be left on permanent exhibition, selected works are often available to see in the John Madejski Fine Rooms which can be viewed for free via a free tour. Also available for the public, though it must be booked by appointment, is the library. It is the oldest fine arts library in the UK and it holds an impressive collection of books, photos, etc, of British art as well as of the history of the Royal Academy of Art. There is also an exciting array of learning programmes for adults, students, families and even communities.

For eating and drinking there is a restaurant and bar where breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea is available. On Friday and Saturday evenings it is also open for dinner. For a lighter meal there is also a café on the ground floor by the lift and in the summer a café in the courtyard. To help fund this amazing building and its rooms of art it is possible to become a friend of the Royal Academy and gain free entry for a year, or to become a patron with extra special benefits. Considering that you will find yourself coming back again and again, becoming at least a friend of the Royal Academy is definitely advisable.
