Each of our elegant meeting rooms has natural daylight, air conditioning and WiFi. All venue hire space in the Royal Society is equipped with modern AV equipment and there is an on-site team to provide technical support if you need it.

The Royal Society has embarked on a programme to understand and reduce its own environmental impact, across the full range of its activities, including our venue hire and conferencing services. This will include an initial baseline study of the impacts of the Society’s operations and a strategy and plan for reducing those impacts. In an initial assessment, we have been awarded ‘Silver’ status in the Greengage EcoSmart Hotels and Venues scheme. We are now working towards the Platinum award.


The Royal Society is fully accessible for disabled guests. There is a wheelchair lift to access the reception area, with two lifts within the building to access the other floors.
