RSA House

RSA House is a centrally located Georgian building steeped in history, home to the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce – a famous centre for enlightened thinking since 1754.

Located just off the Strand on John Adam Street, RSA House is a centrally located Georgian building steeped in history, home to the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce – a famous centre for enlightened thinking since 1754.
Whether it is a conference for up to 180, location filming, a new product launch or a wedding ceremony, reception or party, we provide the very best in hospitality.
A glass-domed ceiling lights up the Great Room, home to the epic paintings ‘Progress of Human Knowledge and Culture’ by James Barry, commissioned especially for the room. The underground 18th century exposed brickwork Vaults, historically housing cattle and wine, accommodate an award-winning restaurant and provide an unparalleled backdrop for events.
The Tavern room, which started its existence as the tavern at the original Adelphi Hotel provides a light and airy space for many types of events, looking out onto John Adam Street. It even features in Charles Dickens' Pickwick Papers, and Dickens himself was a member of the Society, serving as a Vice-President and on two of its committees.
A working theatre, built on the last remaining stretch of 18th century cobbled roadway, originally used to transport goods from the Thames to the Strand and seven further meeting rooms all make RSA House an event space like no other.
