    An utterly perfect London wedding venue

    We were so happy to get married at the RSA House. It is a beautiful venue - tucked just away from the Strand - and providing the most beautiful spaces to get married in and enjoy your day. Our original wedding date was in May, but with the Covid chaos we rescheduled for December. When in September, weddings were looking uncertain for the rest of the year, the amazing team at the RSA helped to make our wedding happen in 3.5 days. Throughout it all, the team were amazing - always there to talk to and providing support and ideas. On the day itself, everything was flawless - from the welcome from the staff on the door, to all the details and arrangements in the event planning - we honestly didn’t have to lift a finger on our wedding day, but just enjoy it! Our wedding food was also delicious - Darren and the kitchen team put on an incredible feast with plates that our guests still talk about. We honestly couldn’t recommend the venue more highly - Olivia and her team will ensure you have a day to remember. Thank you so much to everyone at the RSA house for ensuring that we had such a special day! Love, R and G

    The most beautiful covid-safe venue

    We wanted to say again how amazing our day was and that we couldn’t have done it without you and the team. Thank you for being so great before and during the event, you guys had clearly worked so hard and planned every tiny detail.

    All the best and thank you so much again for everything.
