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.
For couples who want to safely celebrate their love, with their closest family and friends, RSA House is also the perfect venue of for an intimate London wedding.

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.
We wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for an incredible wedding at the RSA. We are so unbelievably happy that you made this possible for us at such notice - and that we could get married at the venue we always dreamed off. All of our guests commented on how fantastic the staff were - and we definitely didn’t have to worry about a thing in your capable hands! We loved every moment - and will for sure be memories of a lifetime. Thank you for all your support over the last 18 months - we are so happy we made it.
I’m Ben’s mum Christine, and just wanted to say what an amazing job you and your team did on Saturday during the wedding! Ben and Sophie had a wonderful happy day. Also, Charlotte’s photos really capture the awesome beauty of the venue! Restrictions and conditions don’t make celebrations easy just now, but it was all amazing. We were all made to feel so safe and welcome. The food and service were excellent. Please pass on our thanks to your team and we’ll certainly be recommending the RSA as an excellent wedding venue. Christine

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.

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!
