A showstopper of a venue in London's iconic County Hall
Our County Hall venue is as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside with over 68,000 sq ft of multi use event space over two floors for conferences, meetings and events. Situated on London's Southbank it is in a great location with breathtaking views over The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.
The County Suite can accommodate larger groups, but when combined with the multi purpose event space, The Thames Suite we can cater for a self-contained event (who get to enjoy those enviable views!). This fantastic space is supported by a range of smaller conference suites and meeting rooms as well as exclusive use opportunities and private dining options. Our design team has sympathetically restored this charming building keeping original features coupled with high quality design in classic copper and velvety tones. All of this and only minutes away from Waterloo and Westminster stations.
