The Society of Londoners is a group of fascinating individuals invested in London. Membership offers an incredible opportunity to make a charitable impact at the Museum of London, while being connected with London’s rich history, its vibrant present and its exciting future.

We want the museum to be a place where members come to engage, debate and share their experience and ideas with other Londoners so that, together, we can make London the best it can be.

  • Society of Londoners: £1,750 per year or £145 monthly
