Welcome to The Geographical Club

A dining club closely associated with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)

The origins of the Geographical Club lie in the Raleigh Club which was a dining club for explorers and travellers established in 1826.

Today the Club meets for dinner approximately 8 times a year. It has a wide ranging membership drawn from Fellows of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) whose backgrounds span academia, exploration, travel, authorship, commerce and the wider world.

The Club provides support to the RGS-IBG both through the Geographical Club Award for post-graduate research and through the funding of conservation work in the archives.
