1Conferences & meetings at the Royal Society of Chemistry

The Royal Society of Chemistry boasts a superb location in central London, making it perfect for meetings and conferences. Its suite of six rooms make it flexible enough to accommodate most event briefs.

The famous Library in particular comes highly recommended, and while this listed building oozes rich history, you can expect up-to-date AV equipment and full support from the in-house events team.

2Private events at the Royal Society of Chemistry

Rubbing shoulders with The Ritz and Fortnum’s, the Royal Society of Chemistry is in rather good company. Its Mayfair postcode gives any private event here a certain je ne sais quoi, too – not to mention an enviable location.

From weddings to awards ceremonies, lectures to business lunches, the RSC’s flexible suite of rooms can accommodate most event types. And with dedicated in-house on everything from AV to catering (and everything else), it’s the perfect venue for an event with a difference.

3Location and directions to the RSC

Located off Piccadilly, opposite Fortnum and Mason, the Royal Society of Chemistry is just a 5 minute walk from Green Park Tube Station or a 7 minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.
