  • The uplifting rooms and engaging spaces can be hired, combined and used in many different ways, during the day or evening.

Today, The Royal Institution is an independent charity dedicated to connecting people with the world of science, offering an exceptionally elegant and versatile events venue. With eight flexible spaces to hire we can host a whole spectrum of events including conferences, presentations, board meetings, receptions and dinners.

They are probably most famous for our CHRISTMAS LECTURES, started by Michael Faraday in 1825 and held annually ever since in our spectacular lecture theatre and broadcast by BBC television since 1936.
