Kings Place Venue Hire N1
Located in the heart of Kings Cross with views over the beautiful Regent’s Canal, the venue is easily accessible from all over the UK and Europe. Designed by the award-winning Dixon Jones architects, in collaboration with global leaders Arup Acoustics, it’s no surprise the environmentally-focused building was named the UK’s ‘Best of the Best’. The combination of world-class acoustics and state-of-the-art technology means Kings Place is the ideal venue for your event. We have a range of availability on evenings, daytimes and weekends.
Rooms of Kings Place to hire:
Hall One is Kings Place’s main auditorium. Tiered seating, excellent sight-lines, state-of-the-art audio-visual, sound and lighting technology are some of this room’s main highlights.
Designed in collaboration with Dixon Jones Architects and Arup Acoustics the hall is both classic and elegant, with world-class acoustics. Even the seats in the hall were sourced from Italy and were fully tested in an acoustics laboratory. In terms of its construction, it is a building within a building – a box that sits on rubber springs to give it complete acoustic separation from the rest of the building and the outside world.
All the oak veneer inside Hall One originates from a single 500-year-old German oak tree. The tree, named Contessa by its owners, grew in an ancient hunting forest that now belongs to the local community. That one tree has produced an acre of superb veneer, which has been used in Hall One to cover the panels, columns, roof coffers, backs of the seats, doors and desks. The veneer has also been used for the panelling in Hall Two.
Hall Two is both smart and flexible. This room’s wooden floor and wall panels create a warm and elegant decor. The stage comes in different sizes and offers the possibility of being set up in different locations around the room.
As with Hall One, Hall Two has a built-in, sound-proofed glass technical booth. Our technical department, or the chosen production team, can make use of this excellent facility.
With its high-end technical specifications, this flexible space has the potential for a multitude of events. Food and drink can be served inside this room.

Since opening in 2008, Kings Place has established itself as an award-winning conference and events space providing all catering, AV and production services in-house for a variety of events from a large scale conference to drinks receptions, boardroom meetings, private dinners and Christmas parties. The revenue generated from venue hire under the Kings Place Events brand also contributes to the Kings Place artistic programme.
Kings Place presents a wide range of options for conference hire, including two auditoriums, a canal-side banqueting room with private terrace, two private dining rooms, art galleries, a restaurant and a handful of smaller meeting rooms. The venue boasts state-of-the-art AV, lighting and technology solutions with support teams on hand.
All catering is provided in-house by Green & Fortune, a company dedicated to a ‘gate to plate’ ethos as beef and lamb is sourced from their own farm in Northumberland, where animals are traditionally hand-reared and grass-fed before being butchered and hung on-site at Kings Place.
With its stunning architecture, waterside location and exquisite food, Kings Place is the venue to bring a wow factor to a special day – the perfect modern backdrop for an urban wedding or Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
The Battlebridge Room is fully licensed for wedding ceremonies and boasts floor to ceiling windows overlooking Regent’s Canal. The room also features an exclusive, private covered terrace, offering an ideal location for reception drinks or a BBQ.
The flexibility of Kings Place’s spaces and dedicated team means that Kings Place Events can work with you on every detail – organising bespoke entertainment, food, decoration and beyond.
