Venue Testimonials

The RSA was the most stunning venue for a wedding! Our guests were in awe of the building and absolutely loved the fact that the event allowed us to move into a new room for each part of the day! The staff were highly professional and filled us with confidence in their ability to deliver a fantastic event! They were meticulous in dealing with suppliers in advance of the event and ensured the day itself ran like clockwork. The food and drinks were delicious and enjoyed by everyone and we couldn’t have asked for a better day

RSA House is truly a rare find. Our brief was a central London venue where we could host our ceremony, reception and party until the early hours. After looking at a few hotels, we stumbled across RSA House and instantly knew it was the one. It's such an incredible building, with several different beautiful rooms that made our 12-hour day feel like a few different celebrations in one. From the beautiful original interiors upstairs - including the breathtaking Great Room where we had dinner - to the subterranean Vaults area with exposed brickwork and multiple different areas for our guests to dance, drink or relax, the perfect place to continue the party late into the night.

We recently got married at RSA House and could not be happier that we picked RSA as our venue. From day 1 communication was excellent, with a dedicated wedding co-ordinator on hand for all our questions. Even when our co-ordinator unfortunately couldn’t attend our wedding due to an emergency, the rest of the team swiftly picked up and ran the day to absolute perfection. It goes without saying that the venue itself is stunning - we particularly liked that you have different rooms for the ceremony, dinner and evening reception, meaning each room feels special and you don’t have to wait around whilst rooms are rearranged. The staff were absolutely incredible, with so many of our guests commenting on how great the service at dinner was. The food too was exceptional, with a large selection of interesting and unique dishes to pick from. We couldn’t fault RSA throughout the whole process and wish to thank everyone there who made our day so special.
