Positioned at the top of the Grand Staircase is the Library, still adorned with period features and, unusually for a central London venue, flooded in natural daylight.

The hire of the Library includes a built-in screen and AV equipment, making this a perfect meeting room or awards ceremony venue. With views of Mayfair and walls lined with books, this venue is sure to make an impression on your guests.

The Library can be hired in conjunction with the adjoining Georgian Room and Writing Room to create a versatile event hire venue in the heart of Mayfair and is ideal for drinks receptions, private dining or as a breakout space.

One of the most stunning original features of the Library is the circular mirror suspended above the original fireplace.

Throughout this beautiful space, you will see bronze busts and portraits of some of the Royal Institution's most memorable members and scientists. The floor to ceiling bookcases holds original, antique books and journals that containing the significant scientific discoveries of their age.

The Library is the perfect reflection of the Royal Institution's incredible past and the great minds who have walked the halls before us. Speak to our catering suppliers to see how we can create your perfect event in the Library.
