One of the best experience of attending a breakfast conference here at this venue. It is accessible and so scenic. Lovely atmosphere and can be accessed easily from Charring cross station and Holborn underground!
A fabulous London events venue - really impresses the overseas visitor with the blend of tradition and modernity. The warren of staircases and rooms, passages and assorted nooks and crannies, the 18th century portraits, the association with famous people from history - all creates a unique atmosphere. I have been to events at the RSA several times over the years, and really enjoy coming to the place.
Lovely selection of rooms with a contemporary feels.
