Location: 21 Albemarle Street, W1S 4BS

Description: The Royal Institution is an independent charity dedicated to connecting people with the world of science. It is the oldest independent research body in the world.

It was founded in 1799 by the leading British scientists of the age, including Henry Cavendish and George Finch.

Since then 15 scientists attached to the Royal Institution have won Nobel Prizes.
