Exclusive Event

The Royal College of Surgeons of England’s brand-new events and hospitality space The View kicks off the festive party season with a bang this Christmas. Say goodbye to traditions and hello to the new, with the introduction of beautiful festive florals in the form of a sustainable botanical display. The View, a large versatile space, lends itself to both a festive seated dinner for up to 180 guests or a more informal standing reception for up to 300 guests.

About The View

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.

It is a friendly and inclusive space for the College’s 30,000 members to network and develop, focussing on connectivity between all specialities and all stages in surgical careers.

The View is 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 summer evenings.

It is the perfect spot to host a Christmas Party, 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.

A historical space on the first floor features the Library and Erasmus Wilson Room. The Lumley Library, as well as an evening event space will also be a fully functioning library. By the close of the 19th century, it was widely recognised that the Royal College of Surgeons possessed one of the finest medical science library collections in Europe. The suite of rooms can hold intimate gatherings, receptions and indulgent dinners. Given the historic nature of the surroundings, portable projector screens can be provided upon request.
