A Historical Backdrop at the Society of Antiquaries

Piccadilly’s historic Society of Antiquaries is one of our newest venues, and offers a stunning setting for events.

The venue is centrally situated in London’s Mayfair, within the prestigious Burlington House. A variety of spaces include a Meeting Room, Entrance Hall, Council Room, Library and the Wheeler Room and Fellows’ Room. The ground floor of Burlington House can also be hired exclusively for corporate or private events.

A grand interior includes historical focal points throughout the rooms. The Society currently houses three copies of the Magna Carta, antiques of inimitable historical importance and extensive collections of Tudor Royal portraiture.

The venue will also be at the heart of investigations into the remains of Richard III, by the University of Leicester. The University is undertaking a genetic study on the remains of Richard III for a scientific journal based on the analysis of Richard’s genetic code. Part of this involves specific analysis of the genetic code with regards to eye and hair colour. They will be looking at the surviving portrait of Richard, which is currently housed at the Society of Antiquaries, to see how the genetic data compares with the various portraits and see which one it most closely matches.

The Society of Antiquaries is fully equipped for a wide range of events like awards, Christmas parties, conferences, dinners and drinks receptions with on-site technology including audio transmitters, projection screens, plasma screens and video conferencing capabilities. Audiovisual support is also provided. Get in touch with us to learn more!
