The Royal Society

The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity. The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas.

Kohne Centre

The Kohn Centre is richly decorated with wood panelled marquetry, and its walls are hung with portraits of past presidents of the Royal Society. It is the perfect medium sized conference facility or works equally well as an atmospheric dining room. The room is fully air conditioned and has impressive views over St James’s Park and The Mall. It is soundproofed and allows for flexible for audio visual requirements.

Marble Hall

Decorated in the Venetian style, the Marble Hall is perfect as a spectacular venue for receptions for 100 and dinners for 60. This historic room is situated close to the main entrance of the Royal Society. The Marble Hall is perfect as a catering area for events in the Kohn Centre and serves as a registration and reception area.
