Our rooms

1 Wimpole Street hosts eight function rooms, each providing their own unique features including:

The Max Rayne Atrium is a stunning room flooded with natural daylight from the vaulted glass roof and surrounding walls.  This offers an outside-inside feel when the weather can be temperamental and is a beautiful setting both during the day and at night.  This versatile room is perfect for drink receptions, wedding breakfasts or the ceremony.

The Toynbee-Mackenzie ENT Room is a truly inspirational space, developed by our ear, nose and throat section at the RSM.  It offers not only two levels but cabinets filled with historical medical instruments and doors onto a small terrace space.

The Library has tall windows, proving plenty of natural light, surrounded by traditional style ironwork multi-level shelving, filled with historical books and journals.  There is also a stunning staircase, a perfect location for photos.

A personal touch

As one of the finest wedding venues in central London we pride ourselves on having a support team to match.

To ensure no details are overlooked every wedding at 1 Wimpole Street is assigned a dedicated Wedding Executive and to guarantee a seamless service, an experienced Events Manager will be on-hand throughout your special day.

Our highly experienced team are committed to making it a success. We work tirelessly behind the scenes for you to create a real sense of occasion and to ensure that everything is perfect, from the locally sourced produce to the in-house technical support to bring those guests who are unable to attend directly into your celebration.

Our preferred suppliers have proven themselves to be an excellent partner for the venue. With the same dedication to detail as us, they will help bring your vision to life.

We offer a selection of wedding breakfast menus as well as various options for canapé receptions and evening buffets. Using only the freshest, finest ingredients, our team of chefs apply their imagination, passion and knowledge to ensure that the dishes they create are a delight to the eye and to the palate.

To complement this, our wine list has been created to offer both New and Old World, still and sparkling wines to suit your menu choices.

Social events and Celebrations at 1 Wimpole Street

1 Wimpole Street is the perfect location for celebrations, anniversary’s, birthdays, memorials, and much much more.  Our in-house team of experts are here to guide you through the planning and delivery of all those personal touches that makes your event truly unique.

We offer a variety of event food and beverage options, so we can reflect the individual style and nature of your occasion. For a glitzy evening soirée, our canapé menu is a popular choice. Alternatively for gala dinners, birthday’s or black-tie events, our formal dining menu might be more suitable. Or perhaps an afternoon tea for that special anniversary, baby shower or friends get together.  We also have an extensive wine list if your guests won’t be eating.

Whatever catering you choose will be matched with our first class service, so all your guests will be well looked after throughout your event. We’d be happy to suggest alternative options too if any of them have dietary requirements.

Depending on the type of event and how many are attending the best catering spaces would be the Toynbee-Mackenzie ENT Room, the Max Rayne Atrium, and the Cavendish Room

Thank you very much for all your help in planning last evening’s event. It ran very smoothly and was a huge success! Thank you AV Team as well!

Caitlin MacDonald, Progressive Media

Thanks to you and all the staff at RSM, in particular Karen, Dionne, JJ and reception team.  As always they are all so incredibly helpful which makes the event so much smoother.

Please pass on to all – and thanks again to you, for your patience with me as I make changes until the last minute!

Steph Maunders, Frogmore

I know when I came to do the site visit earlier this year I was impressed with the facilities and what you had to offer.  Now having held an event at the venue, I know that everything you promised was true. The service from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave, is excellent. I hope we can put other events to the venue.


From the whole Woolf family thank you all so much for facilitating such an excellent party for Dad. Your staff were all wonderful – the service was faultless, the food was very good and the venue was impeccable. We are all extremely grateful to everyone at 1 Wimpole Street for making our event such a success.

Serena Woolf, N/a Private Party

1 Wimpole Street is an excellent venue with great conference & AV facilities, good catering and above all exceptional staff.
