The Burlington House Courtyard forms the pedestrian link between Piccadilly and the Royal Academy of Arts. It is a clutter free shared space allowing the free movement of pedestrians whilst accommodating access to allocated parking spaces at the perimeter of the courtyard. All paved materials within this space are of natural stone, in keeping with the Grade II listed buildings which surround the courtyard.
