  • Facilities: A cloakroom is available. We don't have a café, however there are many cafés, pubs and restaurants within a 5–10 minute walk in Regent's Park (the refreshments you might see around the building are for pre-booked event delegates only).
  • Groups: Groups of six or more can visit the RCP but they must be led by one of our authorised guides. Please contact us at history@rcplondon.ac.uk to make arrangements.

Please note that the RCP is a busy conference venue and occasionally the exhibition gallery and other spaces will become crowded as delegates move around the building, particularly at lunchtime.
