RIBA Venues

Light, versatile spaces and breathtaking London views, the RIBA is certain to make an impression.

RIBA Venues, the conference and events arm of the Royal Institute of British Architects is located between the buzz of Oxford Street and the tranquillity of Regent’s Park in London.

The light-flooded RIBA headquarters was opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1934 and represents the best of British architecture. The open design incorporates floor-to-ceiling windows, creating an oasis of light and space.

RIBA Venues’ event facilities host conferences, meetings, dinners, receptions, weddings and creative events for up to 400 guests. The three roof terraces offer rare outside space and panoramic views of London can be enjoyed from all rooms on the top floors. Today RIBA Venues plays host to a vast range of events for corporates, associations, charities and private clients.

In addition to its 400 seating tiered auditorium, all its meeting spaces have large, bright windows and offer modern technology. Its art deco interiors add a touch of period romance to special occasions, weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. The venue has also provided the backdrop to many films, fashion shows and TV productions.

The catering team here at RIBA Venues has built a reputation for fine food and a seamless service for any event. The menus on offer range from breakfast canapés to fine evening dining and every dish is prepared on the premises using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients in support of our approach to ethical, local provenance. The venue’s vision and strength is built upon consistent delivery of a quality experience.

RIBA regularly exhibits world-class architecture drawings, models and photographs which are an added attraction for guests attending events at RIBA Venues. The building also houses an extensive architecture bookshop, a café, a restaurant and one of the finest architectural libraries in the world.
