An adaptable large space for meetings, conferences, dinners and receptions.

The Royal Society’s largest meeting room, the Wellcome Trust Lecture Hall, can be used for meetings, conferences, dinners and receptions.

The Hall is fully air conditioned and has large windows, providing plenty of natural daylight. The sophisticated audio visual system can be controlled from the technician’s box or directly from the speaker’s platform, and offers state-of-the-art webcasting facilities. The room also features an inbuilt stage, ideal for conferences and awards ceremonies.

The City of London Rooms are perfect for post conference receptions and used as catering areas for the Wellcome Trust Lecture Hall. The rooms offer wonderful views over St James's Park and the Mall.
