Member facilities

Make the most of the facilities at Savoy Place. From having a coffee to getting your hands on the latest publications, the space has been designed with your needs in mind.

Savoy Place is designed to serve IET members – past, present and future. Use the venue as a base when you need it while making the most of the research and library facilities on hand.

Seasonal opening times 2018/19: The Faraday Centre will close on 24 December at midday and re-open on Wednesday, 2 January 2019 from 08.30.

Savoy Place will not be open for New Year's Eve 2018/19. After three years of running successful New Year’s Eve events we have decided to have a break in 2018 and will not be holding an event. We will review this again in 2019. Thank you.


Members now get their own dedicated space, separated from the areas designed for functions, fulfilling our core aims to help members and create an engineering community.
