Location and room hire

The Institution is based in the heart of London


We will be vacating 11 Upper Belgrave Street during 2014 and as such are unable to provide venue facilities with effect from February 2014. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.

We are able to recommend a selection of similar venues in a SW1 location (please note that we are not affiliated with any of the organisations we recommend). Please email for further information.

Once fully refurbished, our new headquarters will have state of the art venue facilities and we very much look forward to welcoming you there in the future.

The Institution's headquarters are based in Belgravia, SW1. This idyllic setting boasts beautiful London surroundings with fantastic transport links. The building is less than 10 minutes walk from Victoria Station, which has excellent bus, rail and tube connections.

Victoria Station is also London's main rail connection to Gatwick Airport, making our headquarters a fantastic location for international events.

The four meeting rooms in this Grade II* listed building provide for a variety of occasions from evening dining and large conferences to seminars and small meetings. Whether you're hosting a board meeting or a formal dinner, a range of catering options are available to suit you. In addition, the Institution also offers equipment hire and technical support at competitive rates.
