location St. James's Park, SW1Y

Described as the 'cultural heartbeat of London' by Damien Hirst, the Institute of Contemporary Arts is an iconic and creative location for any event. Situated between number 10 Downing Street, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, locations don’t come more iconic: the ICA is a legendary venue with views over The Mall, Big Ben and London Eye. The ICA has two Regency rooms, a fully equipped theatre, studio, bar and two classic cinema spaces available to hire.

The Nash and Brandon Rooms are filled with original Regency plasterwork and with floor to ceiling windows that open out onto three balconies overlooking St James’s Park. Designed by John Nash these versatile spaces are used regularly for private parties, conferences, weddings, product launches and fashion shows. These Grade 1 listed rooms are accessible via the grand staircase and private entrance. 

All catering is provided exclusively by world-renown caterers Arnold & Henderson, who run the highly acclaimed Rochelle Canteen, based in Shoreditch’s Rochelle School, now also at the ICA.
