1Weddings at RSA House

From the Great Hall with its spectacular domed glass roof to the secluded subterranean Vaults, RSA House is the ultimate venue for that quintessentially London wedding.

Situated at the heart of the West End, the House is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and receptions for up to 180 guests. Boasting 11 rooms, it offers Georgian grandeur, contemporary style and some surprising spaces all under one roof. Spoilt for choice? Book the lot, and make the House your home for a day.

Whether you want to take your guests on a journey through the venue or let them drift freely from room to room, the dedicated in-house wedding team will help you plan every detail. And to add to the feel-good factor; all profits will go to charity. So your special day will help make someone else’s too.

Full wedding day packages are available, including seated dining for up to 140 guests. And with seasonal menus, specifically designed for RSA House by the head chef, you can expect top-notch catering at the top table (and throughout).

With a range of rooms to choose from, there’s space for 10-220 guests. And with a flexible bar set up (drinks and corkage available), a DJ, band or music, the dedicated event team can help you make this party venue your very own.
