The Royal Institute of British Architects

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is an award winning venue located in Central London, a short walk from Oxford Circus, Great Portland Street and Warren Street Stations.

The team at the venue offer a full dedicated service including, sales and planning leading through to exceptional operations with a team dedicated to audio-visual facilities and full in-house catering.

The venue lends itself well to large conference due to the number of smaller breakout rooms and the large lecture theatre making it a perfect venue for a full exclusive use.

Room Layouts & Capacities

66 Portland Place – the headquarters to the Royal Institute of British Architects since 1934 is a highly flexible venue with many different spaces to accommodate a large range of events from conferences to drinks receptions and summer parties.

The space includes a purpose built auditorium, a grand hall, modern gallery and other smaller meeting spaces across the five floors of the Art Deco building. The venue is even home to three roof terraces that are perfect for summer parties.

The Jarvis Hall is ultimately the most traditional space at RIBA – hosting up to 400 delegates this purpose built auditorium is a hidden gem on the lower ground floor of the venue. Hiring this space allows delegates to be managed in one area if there isn’t the need for breakouts. It is a completely self contained area. The room also has state of the art audio visual equipment and in house technicians to allow for a smooth running event.

In contrast to the Jarvis Hall the venue is also home to another magnificent space – The Florence Hall. It is very unique space that has the wow factor boasting floor- to ceiling windows and opening onto a roof terrace so delegates can take a break in a tranquil area in Central London. The Hall is perfect for social events such as drinks receptions or gala dinners.

There are many other spaces within the venue that are varying in size and style and are perfect for break out spaces or ideal for smaller boardroom meetings needed away from the office.

This is a venue for every occasion!

We love this venue as it has such a variety of spaces for all client sectors and events. The team are so lovely and accommodating making it a pleasure to work in partnership with.


The venue is a 5 minute walk from Regent’s Park or Great Portland Street station
