Period filming location In London

Whether you’re filming a modern documentary in the contemporary Atrium or shooting a period drama in our historic Regency Library, the Royal Institution can transform into any era,

The sweeping double staircase in the Grand Entrance is a favourite with location managers while the portraits, busts and original features of the first floor are perfectly suited to a period backdrop.
