There is a great view of the Thames and Waterloo Bridge from the Riverside Room on the 4th floor of the Institute of Engineers building. This is at 2 Savoy Place. This is where the British Broadcasting Company started in 1922....in the basement so they didn't have this view. All the other rooms are named after famous British scientists - its like walking through a physics book.
The awards are going well. Good attendance, interesting company and great food.
