An architectural showcase of etched glass and portland stone carvings, the Grade II-listed home of the Royal Institute of British Architects makes a striking setting for Christmas parties. Standout spaces include Florence Hall – a light-filled centrepoint with floor-to-ceiling windows – and the smaller Aston Webb Room, which benefits from leather-lined walls for cosy winter dinners. Up on the top floor, the Wren Room is graced with brilliant views across the capital. Each space can be paired with a seasonal menu, fine wines and festive entertainment. All profits from events go to the RIBA charity, which supports British architectural talents.
