Christmas at the RIBA 

Our magnificent Florence Hall is the ideal venue for your perfect Christmas party; the vast floor-to-ceiling windows, etched glass doors and beautiful carved stone pillars combine to create an elegant and grand space that can accommodate up to 200 guests for a seated dinner-dance or 400 for a reception.

Our First Floor Landing with its monumental marble pillars and impressive staircase forms an exceptional backdrop for evening receptions for up to 150 guests. This area can be hired on its own or in conjunction with the Florence Hall for larger Christmas parties. Adjoining the Florence Hall is our superb terrace - the perfect area for those guests wishing to venture outside.

For a private Christmas lunch in stunning central London surroundings, the high-ceilinged Gallery at the RIBA extends from the buzzing grand First Floor Landing and looks out over Portland Place. The Gallery can offer space for delicious seated Christmas lunches for groups of 30 to 80 guests, or up to 150 guests for a less formal affair.

The Venues and Catering teams at the RIBA have extensive knowledge of organising functions and will be delighted to advise on, or arrange, a variety of entertainment. We can also recommend suppliers for those all important finishing flourishes such as flowers, lighting and decorations to create the perfect party for you and your guests. Contact RIBA Venues on 020 7307 3888 for further details.
