Large venue situated in the heart of City of London and the Royal Exchange. Lovely surroundings with an immense space which can be easily decorated for any type of use.

Company Christmas party was at this venue which we all found fantastic! There are 2 floors to host large parties at and a spot overlooking the main floor where a small band can play music at. Food and catering staff were phenomenal as well!
