1 Wimpole Street: deliver a great conference, meeting, or event every time
Welcome, you’ve just arrived at 1 Wimpole Street! Our conference and events facilities are used by thousands of events professionals, delegates, and guests every year.
We’d love it if you chose us for your next event too. But we know you’ve probably got some burning questions to ask first.
For example: Is 1 Wimpole Street spacious enough to accommodate my event? Do meeting rooms have all the fancy tech I want – like digital screens, fast wifi, and nice lighting? Do they do decent food? And can I book a non-medical event?
In short, yes, yes, yes and yes. We’ve got your event totally covered, because:
- You can choose from 16 different event spaces over 3 floors, with room capacities ranging from 10 to 300 people. So you’ll have plenty of flexibility for your event, and plenty of space to accommodate your guests.
- You’ll have all the newest, shiniest technology you need for a successful event. 1 Wimpole Street is fitted with the very best audio visual facilities – so we’ve got the most up-to-date lighting, digital screens, and technical gear around. And don’t worry if you’re not technically-minded, we’ve also got a clever in-house AV team to take care of it all for you.
- You’ll get your guests’ mouths watering with a range of food and drink options, from tasty breakfasts to 3-course dinners. And because it’s all fresh, healthy, and responsibly sourced, it’s high-quality and highly delicious.
- You can book our conference rooms even for non-medical events. Though we’re often used for Royal Society of Medicine events, we take virtually all types of bookings. So you can hire us for everything from business meetings, to canapé receptions, to private exhibitions.
Oh, and one other thing:
- You’d never guess, but our building is actually 100+ years old. So if you want a venue steeped in UK history and prestige, we’ve got a century’s worth of it to share. Just come on in.

I’m organising an event
There’s nothing we like more than a party, so private event bookings are always welcome. We can cater for up to 300 people for any occasion: from lectures or exhibitions, to drinks receptions and seated dinners.
We organised a 3 day conference for 350 delegates plus 30 exhibition stands at the RSM, 1 Wimpole Street. We were extremely pleased with everything. The event was deemed a great success by our client, sponsors, delegates and ourselves. The meeting room facilities are fantastic with various rooms to accommodate different capacities which worked well for us.
The in-house AV equipment that is offered in the package is great and the team who worked with us on producing slides etc. were very professional. Our very attentive event planner, was most accommodating with our needs and special requirements, but the whole team on site during our event were friendly and attentive throughout the conference.
Our client has reconfirmed for 2018 and we would not hesitate in recommending the RSM, 1 Wimpole Street to any of our clients in the future.
It was very successful, thank you.
We had so many compliments in relation to the theatre, venue itself and food so looking forward to coming back next year.
Thank you very much for all of your help with our booking last Friday. The event went extremely well and everything at One Wimpole Street was as perfect as ever.
Would you also please pass on our thanks to Leonardo, Ali, your reception team and the gentleman that helped resolved some issues we had with the screen in the Wimpole Room. They were all extremely helpful and friendly.
The inaugural International AEM was held at the elegant and spacious home of the Royal Society of Medicine.
The feedback from all participants (our forty-strong international and national faculty of world experts, >300 delegates, sponsors and exhibitors) has been unanimously excellent, ensuring that we shall now be holding the International AEM on an annual basis.
The home of our International AEM shall remain that of the Royal Society of Medicine at 1, Wimpole Street, London; the elegant beauty, space, location, award-winning audio-visual and other facilities of which remain, in our opinion, second to none. The catering and hospitality is superb and the management team’s friendly attitude and attention to detail is remarkable. All staff were highly professional and equally committed to ensuring that our event was a tremendous success. We very much look forward to the next one from the 5 to the 7 September 2018!
1 Wimpole Street is an excellent venue with great conference & AV facilities, good catering and above all exceptional staff.
The venue is excellent. Having been a member of the RSM for number of years now this is the first time I have used the Heritage Room, and what a lovely venue it is to hold a meeting, and certainly somewhere I will use in future for my more formal appointments.
We are extremely pleased with the way our special NHS70 event took place and would like to thank you and all your colleagues for the professional and helpful support you provided throughout the conference.
Technical and facilities support was always on hand and was both helpful and friendly. The catering was of a very high standard and combined with the excellent venue it proved to be a perfect setting for our flagship NHS70 events.
We had excellent social media engagement on the day and the anecdotal feedback we have already received has been very positive.
I would be very grateful if you would share our appreciation with everyone who was involved at the RSM with our event. I would also like to extend a particular note of gratitude to you for being very helpful and accommodating as the plans for the conference changed and developed in the run up to the event.
It was a pleasure to work with yourself and everyone at the RSM.
Thank you very much for your time on the phone earlier today and thank you again for your wonderful help with our event. It was a success and we’ve had very positive feedback from attendees and colleagues. Many commented on how delicious the canapés were and noticed that not many venues provide such a nice selection of vegetarian and vegan canapés.
Thank you so much for all your help with organising this meeting with Tino, you have both been absolutely brilliant. The meeting and wine tasting event went very well. All staff I came into contact were wonderful, friendly and helpful! We had good feedback with regards to the food at lunch time too!
I look forward to working with you again.
Thank You Natasha,
I think the day went very smoothly. Great audio-visual support. Catering was excellent and the lunch was absolutely lovely (+ very efficiently served). Please thank all your staff for very professional service.
I just wanted to email you to say thank you to you and your staff for helping us make our event yesterday such a success.
All your staff, including both the catering and event staff were really helpful and polite, and provided us with an excellent service. We thought the food was really good too.
Many thanks for hosting our event last night at the RSM, the second time we have been your guests. All the arrangements were outstanding. Chiara Mecca did a great job as our main contact point for the event; I would be grateful if she would pass on my thanks to the rest of the RSM team who helped us to set up and made everything work so smoothly, as well as to the chef and the catering team. I heard a lot of positive comments about the food and the service. Everyone had a wonderful time, our only problem was getting the last guests to leave!
The AV team have also been really helpful with the technical side of things and are doing final versions of the videos this morning. We’ll be getting them up on our website and launched onto Twitter later today.
Once again, many thanks to all for making it a really memorable event!
With best wishes,
Thanks so much for making our event run so smoothly, it was a great success and all of the elements seemed to be so hassle free. Your team last night were fantastic and service was impeccable!
Thanks so much,
The event was fantastic, all staff were such a great help! Maddy from AV was amazing at helping us throughout the day and helping everything run smoothly. The reception team and event manager for the day were also amazing and nothing was too much for them. It can always be stressful running an event and making sure everyone is happy, but your team took a lot of that stress off our shoulders! A special thank you to yourself for helping us arrange the event, from the beginning you have been fantastic (even with our continued changes!). Your venue comes highly recommended from us and we would love to come back in the future for further events. Thank you & have a lovely week!
We had a splendid evening personally and the feedback has been excellent, everybody had a good time.
The food, wines and above all the staff were excellent, everyone was most impressed.
Thank you once again for all your help in arranging such a memorable evening.
With kind regards,
