The RSA House London Corporate Functions & Events

The host of world-famous thinkers, inventors, and activists for more than 200 years, RSA House is the perfect place to inspire and share knowledge at your next corporate event or function. The house was designed by renowned architect Robert Adam and has welcomed the likes of Charles Dickens, Graham Alexander Bell, and Winston Churchill to its halls. This beautiful building offers a variety of rooms and packages for corporate events, each room still retaining original, elegant features for a charming backdrop. 

For large conferences and dinners, look to the impressive Great Room with its glass-domed ceiling and series of James Barry paintings that took a cool 24 years to complete. With a stage, AV, lighting, and sound, this room has everything you need for large presentations and functions. 

Look below the house to the Vaults, with their exposed brickwork, and Durham Street Auditorium, a purpose-built theatre which would be the perfect spot for presentations or screenings. 

For something smaller, RSA House has seven different meeting rooms, all linked up with technology that makes meetings and functions easy and seamless to facilitate.

Venue Testimonials

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.
