3 Welcome to 41 Portland Place We are a central London conference venue providing period and modern rooms for events and meetings. Located close to Oxford Circus, Regents Park and Marylebone, the Grade II* listed townhouse is an ideal destination with great transport links. This unique venue provides meeting rooms that combine traditional period features and contemporary facilities. Designed by James Adam in 1773, 41 Portland Place was originally built as a private home for The Honourable Thomas Gage. It remained a private residence until 1939 when its last inhabitant, the Dowager Lady Alington passed away. During the Second World War the house was left empty, but remained standing while surrounding buildings were raised to the ground during the London Blitz. The Ciba Foundation, later known as the Novartis Foundation, moved into 41 Portland Place in 1947; and for over 50 years hosted prestigious scientific events, meetings and symposia attended by some of the greatest medical scientists of the last century, including nearly 90 Nobel Laureates. The Novartis Foundation closed in In October 2010, after a 5million refurbishment, the building started a new chapter in its history as the home of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Founded in 1998, the Academy of Medical Sciences is the independent body in the UK representing the diversity of medical science. Its mission is to promote medical science and its translation into benefits for society. Profits generated through venue hire of 41 Portland Place are used to fund activities run by the Academy to ensure research is rapidly translated into benefits for patients. 3.
