Enjoy London's nature with the London Natural History Society

The London Natural History Society traces its roots back to June 1858, when the Haggerstone Entomological Society was founded. By December 1858, the society was meeting weekly, with up to 35 members in the now demolished Carpenters' Arms, at 121 Kingsland Road, between Shoreditch and Dalston. Subsequently the Society moved to the Brownlow Arms (also no longer with us), where it remained for 30 years.

In 1913, the Society merged with the North London Natural History Society (formerly the Clapton Naturalists' Field Club), to become the London Natural History Society.

Such is the passion for the natural world that the society still holds a range of indoor meetings, field meetings, ecological surveys, field study days and other events and welcomes those with an interest in the natural world to its meetings as its guest. Meetings cover a range of natural subjects including ornithology, botany, ecology and entomology and there are guides on offer to tell you what you're looking at.
