The View is at the heart of The Royal College of Surgeons of England. Founded by the Royal Charter in 1800 it is the professional home of surgery in England and internationally.
It is a friendly and inclusive space for the College’s 30,000 members to network and develop, focusing on connectivity between all specialties and all stages in surgical careers.
The View is also open to the general public for conferences, meetings and events. It boasts spectacular views of London and has a large terrace guests can enjoy in the summer evenings.
It is the perfect spot to host a large conference or a beautiful wedding, nestled in a building steeped in history and bringing together modern facilities with a long legacy of research and scientific discovery in the heart of London.
We are now taking enquiries for meetings, conferences, receptions, corporate and private events and parties.
A historical space on the first floor features the Library and Erasmus Wilson Room. The Lumley Library, as well as an evening event space will also be a fully functioning library. By the close of the 19th century, it was widely recognised that the Royal College of Surgeons possessed one of the finest medical science library collections in Europe. The suite of rooms can hold intimate gatherings, receptions and indulgent dinners. Given the historic nature of the surroundings, portable projector screens can be provided upon request.
The Conference Suite and rooms on the top floor of The View make up one large space, with capacity to hold up to 300 people for a drinks reception or theatre style. The space can also accommodate up to 120 cabaret style or 180 guests for dinner. The Park View space looks out onto the historic Lincoln Inn Fields, and wider London beyond. The room is equipped with a wide screen and podium, accompanied with repeater screens along the walls.
