A beautiful, historic location for venue hire in central London
The Royal Society is situated in an ideal, central London location overlooking the Mall and St James’s Park and close to many transport links. With 12 rooms available for venue hire, our central London location is ideal for hosting conferences, board meetings, training events, seminars, lectures, receptions and dinners. We can accommodate events for between 10 to 500 guests.
Our aim is to ensure that your event is delivered to the highest standards. Our conferencing team will work with you to plan and manage your event so that you can be confident that your event will run smoothly and that your guests will have an enjoyable experience.
Each of our elegant meeting rooms has natural daylight, air conditioning and WiFi. All venue hire space in the Royal Society is equipped with modern AV equipment and there is an on-site team to provide technical support if you need it.
Our conferencing service is recognised for our outstanding fine dining catering options, provided by our dedicated catering partners, CH&CO. CH&CO creates seasonal menus using sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients and buy from small, local, independent suppliers where possible. We look forward to welcoming you to the Royal Society.
