Further information

In the heart of the City on the North bank of the River Thames, stands a striking historic building that is a remarkable part of London’s heritage. Old Billingsgate encompasses three versatile spaces and a beautiful terrace with unrivalled views of Tower Bridge, City Hall, The Shard and London Bridge.

This Victorian Grade II listed building was once a world famous fish market, running up until 1982. The Grand Hall, which now holds varying events from exhibitions to awards dinners, was the market floor, and the basement of Old Billingsgate, now The Vault, was covered in 50 years of ice used to store the fishermen’s catch. Given an industrial twist by architect Lord Richard Rogers, the building has undergone an amazing transformation, from the 19th century’s largest fish market to London’s premier event space.

The summer event season is designed to offer a combination of value and flexibility achieved through the installation of AV, sound, intelligent lighting, décor and furniture. This enormous space is steeped in history and retains much of its original interior features. Magnificent triple height ceilings, towering pillars and elegant architecture surround an expanse of space where your imagination can run wild.

Whilst these seasons are most often booked for dinners and evening parties, the venue can easily be adapted for lunches, exhibitions, conferences and award ceremonies. The private riverside terrace offers unrivalled views of Tower Bridge for receptions and the upper galleries and vaulted basements offer fantastic contrasting additional event spaces. The main hall can be divided to create separate reception, conference or dining spaces with additional set, staging and theming added to deliver your specific design and objectives.
