The combination of an elegant historic setting and modern luxury makes this an incredibly versatile and stylish venue, perfect for adding sophistication to events. Now the home of the Royal Society for Public Health, 28 Portland Place’s delightful exterior provides the perfect façade for 6 event spaces, which can be hired separately or in combination, for all or part of the day.
The interior remains faithful to the original Adam Brothers’ blueprint. Guests will adore the classical colour scheme and the intricate finery of the ceilings, the gilded golden details and the twinkling, magical chandeliers. Right from the moment you arrive at the grand entrance, everything has a wonderfully elegant feel which continues throughout the house.
The ground-floor Sainsbury and Adam rooms comprise the Adam Suite, which overlooks the secluded Courtyard. The impressive Sainsbury Room, replete with drapes, fireplace and chandeliers, is the larger of the two beautifully appointed interconnecting rooms and is popular for both conferences and dining.
The Adam Room provides a warm, intimate atmosphere for meetings and private dining. It can also be hired in conjunction with the Sainsbury Room as a reception or breakout space.
Located on the first floor, the Harben Room is an outstanding space for receptions and meetings. A magnificent gold doorway links the Harben Room with the Heggie Room and enables both to be hired together as the airy Harben Suite for bigger occasions.
The Heggie Room is the larger of the two beautifully appointed Harben Suite rooms and features elegant columns, as well as magnificent floor to ceiling mirrors and a superb original ornate period fireplace.
Also on the first floor, the Founder’s Room provides an intimate setting for smaller functions and can be booked either individually or together with the adjoining Harben Suite.
The Courtyard is a charming and intimate outdoor space ideal for small al fresco receptions.
28 Portland Place is licensed for Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships. For bridal preparations, full use of the Members’ Room is available, which offers original ceiling cameos and a balcony overlooking the tree-lined Portland Place that provides the perfect backdrop for photographs.
The house is located conveniently close to a selection of Underground stations – Great Portland Street on the Hammersmith & City and District lines, Oxford Circus on the Bakerloo and Victoria lines, and also Regent’s Park on the Bakerloo line.
