Hosting your wedding at RSA House is akin to taking a trip back in history. The graceful Georgian architecture, large windows and original sweeping marble staircase transport you back to a time of lavish festivities and beautiful surroundings, and the wedding venue’s secret underground spaces are enchanting for your guests to discover. RSA House is set in the heart of the city steps from one of London’s most notorious streets, The Strand, and is only a stone’s throw from iconic London landmarks such as the London Eye and River Thames. The Victoria Embankment Gardens are an equally short walk from the venue and offer stunning backdrops for the wedding couple’s photographs no matter what the season.

At RSA House, wedding ceremonies and dinners can take place in the splendid Great Room where a series of vast mural paintings encircle the room and a domed glass ceiling pours floods of natural light in. The Benjamin Franklin Room is a more intimate room on the ground floor with four elegant columns and Adam fireplaces framing the space, perfectly suited to drinks receptions after the wedding ceremony. The versatile space features a window the length of the room with views over The Strand and a commissioned Troika chandelier that reflects geometric patterns onto the ceiling.

Nestled below RSA House is a series of interconnecting rooms that make up The Vaults. With exposed brickwork and playful arching ceilings, The Vaults at RSA House adapt effortlessly to almost any wedding theme and are a stylish and atmospheric underground space to kick-start the wedding party.

Across from The Vaults, a characterful underground cinema has been installed, featuring the original road leading down to the River Thames beneath the plush theatre seats. It's a brilliant break out space for children to watch their favourite films whilst the adults sip on cocktails and dance the night away in The Vaults. With an unrivalled central London location and the series of delightful architectural features, RSA House is uniquely placed to host an unforgettable wedding day.

Thank you so much for all of your help and assistance on the lead up to and on the actual day of the wedding. We had a truly amazing day and couldn’t have asked for more. All of our guests have said they had a wonderful time and loved the venue. Many people actually went as far as saying it was the best wedding that they had ever been to - as such I think we can safely say it was a success. I will miss working with you on the wedding arrangements and would absolutely like to meet up with you again when I am back up in the city. Other than that we would just like to thank you again for making our day everything we dreamed it would be. We have memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Absolutely loved it and wish we could do it again! Very best wishes and sincere thanks to you and the whole team at the RSA

We had the most amazing day! Thank you so much for everything you did, it all went so smoothly and everyone was commenting on how flawless everything was and what a great venue. It was all perfect. My mum’s friend has been in catering for years and is so fussy, she said the staff, food and wine were amazing so if she has approved then it definitely went well! Thank you for being so great with everything and making sure it all went smoothly, it honestly looked so amazing. Looking forward to a proper catch up. Rosie xx

Thank you to the whole RSA team again for all your fantastic help to organise our wedding! We loved every minute. The RSA is really unique because it offers such a variety of spaces. Some are traditionally elegant and beautiful whilst others are very contemporary which gives great flexibility that wasn’t offered by any other venues we visited. The central London location was brilliant as were the whole RSA team who took care of everything! We didn’t find planning our wedding difficult or stressful at all meaning it was a really enjoyable process for us. Also the food is amazing! We had canapés, a three course wedding breakfast and the European market stall in the evening and our guests raved about everything. The house wines were also delicious and very, very drinkable... The service was excellent throughout and the team took any stress out of the planning process which meant we could really enjoy organising our wedding! Olivia in particular was great because she’s super organised and professional but also just a lovely person!

RSA House is a brilliant central London venue with excellent rooms and amazing, attentive staff. Any last minute changes to the timings of our day were catered for really quickly and the food we had for lunch was very good. We were in the Tavern Room which is a great room and has a brilliant view of the streets of London. There is a small lounge area outside the room which was ideal for us. Overall ourselves as the organisers and the people who attended were impressed with the look and feel of the room and venue and we will definitely be back to RSA House again.

We had our perfect wedding day which was super well organised in advance, so that it was pretty much stress free thanks to the hard work of the events team. The catering staff were also absolutely wonderful and we received compliments that it was the best wedding food ever had by our guests.

Thank you so much for everything in the run up to the day. We were so happy to have chosen RSA house and our guests all absolutely loved it. Special mention to the chef - we had a lot of comments on the food including some very happy Vegans!

We had the most wonderful day, it was everything we wanted. Thank you to you and all the team at RSA who were there on the day and in the run up. Everything went incredibly smoothly and so many people commented on how lovely the food was!

7 Oct 2017

We had a lovely day and fantastic experience with the RSA and our Wedding coordinator. Any enquiries were swiftly answered and I was able to visit on multiple occasions in the run up to the day. The ability to have the whole building made for a lovely day of transitions through the venue as the day progressed. The quality of the food was excellent and the professionalism of the venue and all the staff were perfect.

29 Sep 2017

The RSA managed to get that perfect balance of utmost professionalism whilst being approachable and friendly. The food was astounding and the fact there are two separate areas for dining and dancing makes it a very special venue. We loved it as did all our guests.

We had a great time yesterday at RSA House. I thought I would write to you this evening to say how grateful we all have been for your unfailing attention and courtesy at all times to our many requests during the run up to the event. I think we were able to enjoy yesterday all the more because we felt very confident that you were on top of all the organisation, and of course our faith was not misplaced, as the day was a huge success due in no small measure to your efforts.
