Guided Tours

Spotswood Society Tours

The Spotswood Society, a volunteer student organization, offers guided tours of the Sir Christopher Wren Building and the grounds of the Historic Campus daily when classes are in session. Spotswood Society tours are informal and may be tailored to your specific interests and schedule. Tours typically begin in the center hall of the Sir Christopher Wren Building.

Self-Guided Tours

Guests are welcome to tour the Sir Christopher Wren Building’s exhibition rooms on their own.  No prior arrangements are required, though we do recommend calling ahead if there is a particular room you wish to see.  Rooms reserved for special events will not be open for tours.

Please note that the 3rd floor of the Sir Christopher Wren Building, which houses Religious Studies, is not open for visitors.
