Unusual event venues in London

The versatile nature of RIBA Venues in central London makes it a popular destination to hire as a bespoke events venue. Fashion shows, product launches, celebrity charity galas, photo shoots and film and TV location work take place on a regular basis at the venue. 

We have a preferred supplier list which covers florists, production companies, entertainment suppliers and photographers - all of whom will work with you and suggest creative ideas to bring events and celebrations to life. 

Filming at riba

66 Portland Place is almost untouched since 1934, so the building with its grand entrance lobby and staircases, art deco hall, stylish library, court room and boardrooms provide an authentic background ideal for historic film shoots - even the mens' restrooms in the basement contain the original fixtures from the 1930s. 

Contemporary blank canvas spaces are on the 5th and 6th floor, which lend themselves to filming interviews and 'talking heads'. 

We are happy to consider all requests for film shoots.
