Throughout its history, the RSA has extended a welcome to others looking for a place to discuss their ideas. The RSA has also played host to some landmark events, including Britain’s first photographic exhibition and early public demonstrations of the telephone and talking film.
This tradition continues, with book launches, lectures, conferences, and film premieres taking place in the Great Room, Durham Street Auditorium and Benjamin Franklin Room. These air-conditioned venues are equipped with state-of-the-art AV and can hold between 60 and 186 people.
The RSA House also has more intimate rooms for smaller events involving between 14 and 50 participants. With their natural light and original Adam-style interiors, these offer an inspiring setting for board meetings, presentations and workshops.
The RSA House is located in the heart of London’s West End, within easy reach of Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, the South Bank and numerous Underground and mainline stations.
Call the House team on 020 7930 5115 to arrange a visit.
