Venue hire at Guildhall

 

Guildhall

Hire this venue for your own event - it has seven function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 900 guests and the smallest is ideal for 80.

Since the Middle Ages the Guildhall has been the centre of Government for the City of London. The current building has stood in the geographical centre of the Square Mile since 1411. It holds the accolade of being the only stone secular building to survive first the Great Fire and then the Blitz. It's seen plenty of additions and renovations some easier on the eye than others but the Great Hall retains much of its original grandeur, including two statues of the pagan giants Gog and Magog. The opulent interior is festooned with the shields of the livery companies and features memorials to prominent figures from Nelson to Churchill. It's worth signing up for a guided tour of the crypt, the earliest part of the building, which dates back to the 12th century.
