Royal Geographical Society

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is the UK’s learned Society and professional body for geography, supporting geography and geographers across the world.

Located in the heart of South Kensington's arts and science district, the Society is one of London’s most charming and iconic venues for a wide range of events from conferences, lectures and meetings to receptions, weddings and exhibitions. The venue’s Grade II* listed building combines unique character with modern facilities to create a perfect backdrop for your event.

The Ondaatje Lecture Theatre’s state-of-the-art AV broadcast and recording facilities combines the very best elements of face-to-face events in front of an audience, with live streaming and other digital features. Accommodating up to 450 delegates for daytime conferences and up to 700 attendees for evening talks and lectures, the Theatre is an ideal hire option to deliver high impact events. For smaller groups of up to 100, the Education Centre is well equipped for daytime conferences or evening talks and lectures. In addition, four private rooms are available at the venue for daytime meetings, workshops and training.

The Society’s beautiful period building also makes for a stunning setting to host a dinner and evening reception or celebrate your special wedding day. The grand Main Hall with original wooden floors and a fireplace is an elegant space to tie the knot, with a license for civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests.
