London’s newest destination venue
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.
Now open for events, conferences, and meetings, as well as private celebrations and weddings, The View blends history with modern, sustainable spaces, and outstanding seasonal British food and fine wines from the UK’s longest established events caterer and restaurateur, Searcys.
Built for conferences
The View and Library are 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 evenings.
Both spaces are 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.
The View and the Building
The View is a versatile space for conferences, events and meetings. The View boasts beautiful views over the city, a large terrace for guests to enjoy on summer evenings and transformational facilities. The View is located on the sixth floor of our central London flagship building, which has been transformed into a modern, light and flexible space for all to enjoy. Our building in Lincoln’s Inn Fields provides state-of-the-art research, examination and conference facilities, while embracing the prestigious heritage of the College.
