Your guests’ journey starts with a grand entrance through our historic porch, adorned with classical columns which leads to a spacious lobby featuring distinctive portraits of past Royal College of Surgeons alumni. The whole building, fully updated in 2021 with ergonomics and sustainability in mind, is cut through with a lightwell of modern polished iron and includes an attractive central staircase surrounded with precious artwork from the College’s collection.

The unparalleled sense of occasion is upheld by our venue caterer Searcys, whose talented team of chefs are committed to showcasing the best sustainable seasonal produce from the British Isles. Their delicious and memorable dishes are matched with an expertly curated wine list, with guests treated to a glass of Searcys’ very own Cuvee Champagne upon arrival.
