Highgate’s Cultural Heartbeat
We offer new ideas, opportunities for debate and discussion, and good, lively company.
At the HLSI you will find a library for borrowing, research and browsing; a members’ room with all the major periodicals; stimulating weekly lectures; popular films; art exhibitions; science discussions; musical events and trips to the theatre and opera. Our archive has a wealth of documents and pictures of all kinds relating to Highgate past and present.
Since it was established in 1839, the HLSI has been an essential part of the life of Highgate.
We are in the heart of the village, overlooking Pond Square, in the building into which we moved in 1840.
We want to share with everyone our interest in life, the arts, literature and science.
Come and join us!
