Beautiful wedding venue

RSA House is the perfect wedding venue. The building itself is just beautiful. With the place to ourselves, we made use of the gorgeous rooms on the ground and first floor for the ceremony, reception drinks and all important photos. Then we moved downstairs to the candlelit vaults for dinner and dancing. It was magical! Such a romantic and private atmosphere - exactly what we wanted. Although everything was brilliant, the real highlight for us was dinner - so many of our guests said to us it was the best food they'd ever had. The whole day ran like clockwork. In fact, the whole experience was straightforward from start to finish. The RSA wedding planning team are with you every step of the way - with a perfect balance of recommendations and reminders and some brilliant suppliers, while also giving you the space to come up with your own ideas to personalise your day. It was then so reassuring to have someone we knew (the wonderful Olivia) look after us on the day itself. We really can't recommend this place highly enough - our wedding was everything we ever dreamed of and more. Wish we could do it all over again!

An utterly perfect London wedding venue

We were so happy to get married at the RSA House. It is a beautiful venue - tucked just away from the Strand - and providing the most beautiful spaces to get married in and enjoy your day. Our original wedding date was in May, but with the Covid chaos we rescheduled for December. When in September, weddings were looking uncertain for the rest of the year, the amazing team at the RSA helped to make our wedding happen in 3.5 days. Throughout it all, the team were amazing - always there to talk to and providing support and ideas. On the day itself, everything was flawless - from the welcome from the staff on the door, to all the details and arrangements in the event planning - we honestly didn't have to lift a finger on our wedding day, but just enjoy it! Our wedding food was also delicious - Darren and the kitchen team put on an incredible feast with plates that our guests still talk about. We honestly couldn't recommend the venue more highly - Olivia and her team will ensure you have a day to remember. Thank you so much to everyone at the RSA house for ensuring that we had such a special day! Love, R and G

The most beautiful covid-safe venue

We wanted to say again how amazing our day was and that we couldn't have done it without you and the team. Thank you for being so great before and during the event, you guys had clearly worked so hard and planned every tiny detail. All the best and thank you so much again for everything.

Lovely intimate wedding

We held our 15 person intimate wedding at RSA house. Olivia was extremely patient and flexible with our ever changing plans / ours concerns in relation to coronavirus and she provided us with comfort that RSA would help us in any way as government guidelines were constantly changing. We have heard of other venues not being so flexible so we really appreciate the comfort and support RSA were able to offer in such a strange and difficult time and we feel very lucky to have got married in December 2020. Olivia and her team arranged a gorgeous ceremony set up for us and were very accommodating and flexible to all of our guests on the day. We had a drinks and cake reception following the ceremony which allowed us to get some lovely pictures inside and outside of the venue. We had initially planned to hold a dinner at the venue, however we found this slightly too expensive for a 15 person wedding (eg cost of flowers, additional venue and staff hire) so opted for a nearby restaurant instead. We had a incredible day and we would like to say a massive thank you to Olivia and her team for helping us get our 2020 wedding!

We had a truly amazing day

Thank you so much for all of your help and assistance on the lead up to and on the actual day of the wedding. We had a truly amazing day and couldn't have asked for more. All of our guests have said they had a wonderful time and loved the venue. Many people actually went as far as saying it was the best wedding that they had ever been to - as such I think we can safely say it was a success. I will miss working with you on the wedding arrangements and would absolutely like to meet up with you again when I am back up in the city. Other than that we would just like to thank you again for making our day everything we dreamed it would be. We have memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Absolutely loved it and wish we could do it again! Very best wishes and sincere thanks to you and the whole team at the RSA

Everyone was commenting on how flawless it was!

We had the most amazing day! Thank you so much for everything you did, it all went so smoothly and everyone was commenting on how flawless everything was and what a great venue. It was all perfect. My mum's friend has been in catering for years and is so fussy, she said the staff, food and wine were amazing so if she has approved then it definitely went well! Thank you for being so great with everything and making sure it all went smoothly, it honestly looked so amazing. Looking forward to a proper catch up. Rosie xx

So glad we chose RSA

Thank you so much for everything in the run-up to the day. We were so happy to have chosen RSA house and our guests all absolutely loved it. Special mention to the chef - we had a lot of comments on the food, including lots of happy Vegans!


Married December 2018


The most fabulous and memorable day.

Just wanted to say, we had a fabulous day on Saturday. Very many people commented on the amazing venue, delicious food, and a first class service from hard working staff. Thanks so much for everyone's efforts and for making it the most fabulous and memorable day.


Married December 2018


Everything we wanted

We had the most wonderful day, it was everything we wanted. Thank you to you and all the team at RSA who were there on the day and in the run-up. Everything went incredibly smoothly and so many people commented on how lovely the food was!

A Day to Remember

Being quite go this in nature, my husband and I wanted to marry in a candlelit vault, which is what initially drew us to the RSA. What an incredibly lucky thing too! From the planning to the delivery on the day the venue staff were amazing. Every detail was looked after, and we had a very enjoyable and stressfree day. Alongside the impeccable service, the facilities offered by the venue and the quality of the food and drink were outstanding. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the meal was and how beautiful the venue was. We feel very privileged to have married here, and can't recommend it highly enough to others.

Fabulous place for a unique city wedding

We had such an amazing day - couldn't have been more perfect. Like many people who have left reviews we were married in the vaults with the wedding breakfast in the Benjamin Franklin room and both settings were brilliant. My husband and I aren't ones for a country house hotel wedding, we wanted something that represented the city we live in and our guests were amazed by the venue. We even had our photos standing on the central reservation on The Strand - which you should definitely do if you get the chance, so much fun. Amanda over saw the running of the day and she was excellent. Food was delicious and the service - the best we' ve ever had. Thanks RSA


Married July 2020


Better than we could have hoped for

We had the most amazing wedding in the vaults at RSA house in January. The vaults are perfect for an atmospheric, candle lit winter wedding. From the outset Elise at RSA was amazing - nothing was ever too much trouble and we loved how RSA were so flexible in terms of how we used the space. For example we really wanted lots of candles and this as not a problem, whereas at other venues it would have been. We had our wedding breakfast in the vaults too and our guests commented on how lovely it was to have one long table where they could all see each other. Our guests also commented on how delicious the food was! The location is incredible - so central but also ideally tucked away from the busy Strand. We took advantage of the location and had lots of photos on the Strand! I couldn't recommend RSA highly enough and Elise went above and beyond throughout the build up to our wedding and on the day itself. Although I visited the venue many times before the day, it was better than I could've ever hoped on the day. I wouldn't consider another London wedding venue.


Married March 2013


Totally Awesome

What can we say about the RSA? We would thoroughly recommend the RSA as a wedding venue. The whole team made everything so easy - the day ran so smoothly and it's due to the professionalism of the entire team, from our wedding planner Elise to all the staff serving drinks and food!! All our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was - we had pre-dinner drinks in the Vaults, dinner in the Benjamin Franklin Room, and moved back downstairs to party all night. The food was delicious, and the bar was extremely well stocked! Even though we married on a Wednesday (12-12-12) it really felt like we were the only ones in the building! Downsides? None that we can think of (apart from the whole day going so quickly - testament to the organisation!) - Thanks to the whole team - totally awesome!!


Married March 2013


Perfect Venue

We would thoroughly recommend the RSA as a wedding venue. The Events Manager and team were superb with regards to the planning and organisation of our day and made it all very easy. The day ran like clockwork and everyone had a fantastic time. Many of our guests commented on the excellent quality of the food and said how much they loved the venue. We had the whole place to ourselves so made use of several rooms. Our ceremony was held in the Benjamin Franklin Room, the wedding breakfast in The Great Room and the evening reception down in the Vaults. The only downside was that the day flew by so quickly!


Married February 2013


Just fantastic

Every aspect of the venue and the staff we dealt with, in particular our wedding events manager was better than we expected and just fantastic. The venue itself made an enormous impact on each and every one of our guests and the friendliness of staff and the quality of the catering helped make the day perfect day!


Married April 2011


Beautiful venue and excellent staff

We were married at the RSA in February and the whole day was perfect. The staff were excellent, particularly Janine who made sure everything ran smoothly. The ability to have a mix of traditional and contemporary rooms is great and makes for more interesting photos. You also have the whole House to yourself for the day...we looked at some wedding venues where a number of weddings are held on the same day. The food was fantastic and all of the suppliers we used were excellent and very professional. We would recommend the RSA to anyone wanting to get married in central London.


Married April 2011


Our Perect Day

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you!! What can we say - everything looked and worked in a fantastic way throughout the entire day - from the upper floors in The Adelphi & Romney Rooms to The Benjamin Franklin Room for the meal - then right down into the bowels of the building in The Vaults. It really was a magical occasion - especially for us - but everyone commented on it too! Janine - especially you!! - but everyone at The Royal Society of Arts - who contributed in their differing ways - who obviously made it all look effortless - but we know that all these things take time and design combined with skill and precision - and we very much appreciated what you all put into our special day. The standard of the service - with such a discrete approach - all very friendly yet maintaining professionalism was very much appreciated by all our friends throughout! A very special day for us indeed - we can assure you. Please thank everyone who contributed on the day - it really made our day perfect. Yours with many, many thanks - Izzi Romanov & Ian May


Married March 2011



We had our wedding in August 2010. The day was perfect. The team were great - nothing was too much trouble, and they were super efficient. The day went like a well oiled machine, with all issues totally taken off our hands - we weren't troubled once, leaving us free to enjoy eachother and our nearest and dearest. From the first day of our enquiry, they bent over backwards to help us, and alleviated all the stress of the planning process. I can't rate it highly enough. Amazing.


Married December 2010


Brilliant organisation and attention to detail

We held our wedding reception at the RSA last month using the Benjamin Franklin room and the Vaults, and couldn't be happier with the service we received. Toni the events manager was wonderful, friendly and ultra organised, and suggested many touches to the event that I hadn't even considered and which worked brilliantly. Paul, who was the manager on the day ensured that everything ran like clockwork and couldn't have been more helpful. The food and drink that they provided went down wonderfully with all the guests too - I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to hold their reception there!


Married June 2010


Stunning, unusual location and great service

We got married at the RSA this month and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Events manager Toni Gibbs was incredibly helpful in advance and perfectly organised on the day - we were working on a relatively modest budget for a London wedding and she even suggested several ways we could save money. The venue itself is beautiful - we married in the brick-lined underground vaults and had dinner in the Benjamin Franklin room. Both these spaces need little dressing-up - we got by with one pedestal flower arrangement and lots of white fairy lights. If you want a modern, elegant wedding in central London, then the RSA should suit you well!


Married May 2010


A stunning venue with a proffessional team

We had the most amazing wedding day at the RSA, Our wedding co-ordinator Toni was so helpful. I really didnt have to worry the whole day went so smoothly, and the food, atmosphere and staff were all 100% perfect. I highly recommend this venue...our guests were also very impressed!


Married November 2009


The best venue and amazing value

We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Staff were wonderful, space was very flexible allowing us to put our own stamp on the day. Embankment Gardens 5 mins away for outside photos. Everyone has commented on what a spectacular day it was. Everything ran so smoothly, we literally cannot fault it. Go and see it and find the perfect wedding venue in Central London.


Married October 2009


Fantastic venue and wedding management

We couldn''t fault the RSA in any way! Everything ran so smoothly and we put that down to brilliant management on and before the big day. The food and table service was incredible and commented on by most of our guests. The RSA gave us such a interesting, classic yet contemporary feel which we couldn''t find in any other London venues. The various elements and different rooms and Vaults during the day kept everyone astonished by what was to come throughout the day and made each part unique.


Married September 2009


No wedding venue could be better

The venue provides flexible space and a lovely atmosphere for a wedding: warmth, intimacy and an indefinable dignity that emanates from the building itself. The food was magnificent, the staff superb, attentive, unobtrusive and kind. During the wedding breakfast, the space used for the ceremony was converted into a fun disco setting. The level of wedding organisation was absolutely A1.


Married August 2009


Excellent venue with a fantastic, professional team

We were so pleased to choose the RSA. The venue is beautiful and stunned our guests. The team at the RSA are brilliant and dealt with everything so professionally. The whole day went so smoothly and thats thanks to the RSA. The food was stunning too.


Married August 2009


Amazing place, amazing service

This place was beautiful, with the contrast of the formal rooms and the brick lined vaults. Everyone was without exception friendly and helpful, and the service was perfect. Special thanks to Toni the events manager for whom nothing was too trouble.

Married February 2009


Stunning venue, wonderful staff, amazing

The house is absolutely stunning with so many beautiful rooms. With a central location, a great city feel and just a minute away from the Thames. Close to Victoria Gardens, which is perfect for your photos. The staff were brilliant, especially Toni who co-coordinated everything for us - nothing was too much trouble, she was extremely organized, very relaxed, a complete professional, just amazing. The food was excellent, tasty and very reasonable. You will have a fantastic day, your guests will love the venue & you''ll be planning your next event back at the RSA! The house has open days that are perfect to experience not only for viewing a beautiful house but also to imagine your wedding day.


Married February 2009


Beautiful, eco-friendly venue

We can''t rate the RSA highly enough - the venue is beautiful, the staff were excellent and the food was wonderful. We wanted our wedding to be as ''green'' as possible, and the RSA obliged - they have a strict environmental policy and provided us with a gorgeous meal of local veggie food. They were also very accommodating when it came to fitting our budget, never trying to force us into choosing more expensive options. We had an absolutely wonderful day and much of the credit has to go to the RSA!


Married January 2009


I cannot fault the RSA

The RSA proved to be a fantastic venue for our wedding. The rooms are really versatile the food as good as you''d get in a restaurant and the staff and service completely professional and friendly. I really cannot fault it!

The RSA made the best day of our lives!

We are so glad that we selected this hidden gem for our wedding. Even 5 months after the day our guests are still commenting on how amazing the food was- how often do you get that at a wedding? A truly stunning venue in a fantastic location, all of the staff were so helpful from start to finish, they made everything so easy for us that we could just sit back and enjoy the day.


Married January 2009


Fantastic venue, excellent food and service, Best day ever

The RSA is a fantastic venue and the staff were more than accommodating both in the lead up to and on our special day. On the wedding day the service was great and all of our guests commented about the lovely food. Me and my wife had the best day ever and are forever grateful to all at the RSA, especially Toni our Wedding co-ordinator who helped to ensure we had the best day ever.

Married January 2009


Fantastic unique venue in the heart of London

I had my wedding here in the Tavern Room in September, and I would absolutely recommend the RSA to anyone wanting something slightly different to a traditional church wedding. I had in mind something sophisticated and contemporary, in a central London location - and the RSA really delivered! Everything went perfectly - the RSA wedding coordinator was so helpful in the run up to my big day, able to offer lots of ideas and suggestions - and nothing was too much trouble, the room set up was just as i had hoped, the staff were all very professional and helpful. The food was delicious - all my guests raved about the beef! In all, a wonderful day, thank you RSA!

A fantastic versatile venue that catered to all our needs!

Only one word can sum up our wedding at the RSA. Fantastic! The venue its self was exactly what we were looking for, somewhere that had the wow factor and all of our guests agreed. Using a number of different rooms at the RSA meant there was always something new for our guests to look at and admire especially in the Vaults. An area that created a great atmosphere especially for the evening party when it was lit in an array of different coloured lights. The food was excellent, the staff brilliant. I would recommend the RSA to anyone who is looking for something a bit different in the heart of London, a truly unique venue.
