In the 1980s, County Hall was the Greater London Council’s HQ; the seat of London’s government where Ken Livingstone famously – and often dramatically – locked horns with the national government of Margaret Thatcher. Today, it’s home to one of our most iconic venues where events unfold far less dramatically than they did when Ken was in the hot seat.
Breathtaking views inside and out
Located on London's Southbank, our County Hall venue affords breathtaking views of The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye. What’s more, our venue is just as stunning when you step inside where you’ll discover every inch of space – across two floors – has been lovingly restored. Many of the original features have been retained and classic copper designs, velvety tones and contemporary artworks introduced.
Award-winning conference and event space
The overall effect is outstanding and one of the reasons why our venue scooped Best International Conference Centre in the Stella Awards and Silver Award for Best Conference Venue (under 500) from the Conference Awards.
Tech-enhanced brandable space
With its state-of-the-art AV systems, the latest hybrid meeting and event tech, County Hall is the perfect venue to mix, work and collaborate and ideally suited for private events, trade shows, exhibitions and conferences.
All our conference venues are purposefully designed and include:
- Robust and secure infrastructure to provide high speed Wi-Fi and seamless hybrid event connectivity
- Built-in AV including multi-screens that can be branded
- Floor-to-ceiling windows that allow plenty of natural light
- Vibrant colours that stimulate and inspire ideas and creativity
- Striking design and provocative art that reflect the surrounding area and prompts conversation among attendees
Our conference venues are ‘supercharged not superficial’
All our conference spaces are far more than just ‘spaces’. Unlike many event venues in London and New York, ours are purposely designed – often from the ground-up – to host meetings, events and conferences. That’s why we say our venues are ‘supercharged not superficial’
