  • Fantastic experience! One can almost feel the presence of the great minds that used to grace this hall. Our lecture was informative and a pleasure to watch. Looking forward to attending many more.
  • I come regularly to the public talks, which have ranged from mildly interesting to absolutely fascinating. There is also quite a good cafe and a small museum downstairs.
  • Took kids to a family 'paper folding masterclass' very interesting and well run. Very suitable for the target age group. Kids enjoyed their visit.
  • Excellent talks on all sorts of interesting subjects. Great for everyone interested in science, from children to intellectuals.
  • Visited Royal Institute for an inspiring and enjoyable "Brave new worlds" talk. View from the gallery is superb. You got the feeling the speaker is within an arm's reach. Huge screen and sound reaching every spot.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
