The Space x

Located just a short walk from Holborn station, The View was fully reimagined and modernised for events in 2021, with a focus on sustainability, innovation and sustainability. Famed for its world-leading research and scientific endeavours, the venue is headquarters to The Royal College of Surgeons of England and The Faculty of Dental Surgery, and boasts a large terrace overlooking London’s largest public square, Lincoln’s Inn Fields. The View is managed by the UK’s longest-established events caterer and restaurateur, Searcys, serving extraordinary seasonal British food and fine wines.

The View on the 6th floor of The Royal College of Surgeons, has two main rooms, The Conference Suite which can hold up to 300 guests in theatre style and 180 guests on rounds for dinner, and The Park View for your catering or evening reception. The Park View space with access to the terrace looks out onto the historic Lincoln Inn Fields, and wider London beyond. There are also two smaller rooms, The Linder Boardroom and Newman which are perfect for a small breakout room.
