The Diogenes Club

The British Academy
10 Carlton House Terrace
London, SW1Y 5AH

Onscreen, the exterior of the infamous Diogenes Club is actually The British Academy in Carlton Terrace. The Academy has existed under royal charter since 1902, and functions as the United Kingdom's national body for the humanities and social sciences. It is an independent and self -governed charity. Thankfully, talking is thus encouraged within the building.

The closest underground is Charing Cross [Bakerloo, Northern]. Cross Trafalgar Square and pass underneath Admiralty Arch onto The Mall. Walking towards Buckingham Palace, stay on the right side of the road, and turn right to climb the stone staircase leading up to the Duke of York Memorial. You will emerge onto Carlton House Terrace, with The British Academy on your immediate right.
