RSA House (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is steeped in history and splendour. Founded in 1754 by William Shipley, an English drawing master, social reformer and inventor, his creative passions set the foundations for a successful society that now has a 30,000 strong fellowship.
Historical figures including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Gainsborough, Karl Marx and William Wilberforce have all been members. Now your wedding day can become a part of its rich history, and contribute towards sustaining its remarkable charitable mission, that helps to solve the most pressing social challenges of today.
RSA House weddings can take place in a range of different rooms suitable for both intimate gatherings and seated receptions for up to 130 guests. The magnificent Georgian interior boasts original features, such as the sweeping staircase, marble checkerboard tiles and a Downing Street like facade. This heritage is tastefully mixed with a graceful contemporary style and cutting edge AV event technology.
We are still in a little wedding bubble and can’t thank you enough for all your help and making our day what it was!

Huge thank you again, a little thank you will be in the post to you this week and also can you please pass a massive thank you onto Teo she made sure throughout the evening Ross and I never had an empty glass, you 2 make a seriously great team.
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.
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.
The RSA provide a very accommodating, friendly and professional service. We were very pleased with the team, all the staff were attentive and we had many compliments on the food. Would definitely recommend.
Just wanted to say, we had a fabulous day on Saturday. Very many people commented on the amazing venue, delicious food, and a first class service from hard working staff. Thanks so much for everyone’s efforts and for making it the most fabulous and memorable day.
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!
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.
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.
