The BGS Information Point at the Natural History Museum has moved!

In an exciting redevelopment of our presence, and in a new partnership with the Natural History Museum (NHM), the BGS Information Point has moved to the Angela Marmont Centre in the museum’s UK Centre for Biodiversity (UKB), located in the Orange Zone of the museum.

The BGS Information Point provides an in-person enquiries service, working alongside the museum’s identification and advisory service. As part of the new geoscience discovery partnership with the NHM, BGS are also working on a targeted public engagement programme spanning several areas of museum work, including displays, educational events, resources and collections.

Geological maps and books are accessible through the BGS online shop or you can email the sales team ( Please note, these are no longer kept onsite at the museum; if you wish to access maps, books or other reference material, please email BGS London staff ( in advance of your visit so that we can ensure relevant materials are available.

You can access our reference material and digital data by emailing BGS enquiries (
