Faraday Centre

IET members’ needs were the primary consideration in the creation of this new facility. It houses the Knowledge Centre and Library where you can carry out research.

For networking purposes, there’s a large lounge area where you can sit comfortably. You’ll also be able to enjoy complimentary self-service teas and coffees in the Faraday Lounge – encouraging members to linger and mix.

The Faraday Centre is now open! The Faraday Centre is located on the second floor and is open Monday to Friday, 8.30 am to 6.30 pm.

Faraday Kitchen and Brasserie

The Faraday Kitchen is going cashless from Thursday 12 March 2020

Customers will only be able to pay for their food or drink with any major debit or credit card, contactless payment, Apple and Android Pay. (This will help to reduce the transmission of bacteria or viruses).

Whether you want to network, enjoy a sit-down meal with colleagues, or just grab a sandwich and chat with other members between appointments you’ll find something delicious to eat in the kitchen and brasserie.

IET members get 10 per cent off food in the Faraday Kitchen, making it an even more attractive and easy option. Find out more about the food and drink on offer.

Meeting rooms in the Faraday Centre

There are dedicated meeting and brainstorming rooms available for members to book free of charge.

And if you need to hire one of the bigger meeting rooms you get a 20 per cent member discount on room hire.

A 50 per cent discount is available to IET Events – IET staff and volunteer-led.
