Ironmongers’ Hall London Corporate Functions & Events

In the heart of the City of London is an events venue steeped in history: Ironmongers’ Hall, which has sat on Shaftesbury Place between the iconic Barbican Estate and Museum of London since 1925, but whose legacy goes back centuries. A Tudor style events venue, Ironmongers’ Hall is at once grand and homely, feeling more like a stately country home than a central London building.

With oak panelling, ornate ceilings, stained-glass windows and rich artwork and tapestries throughout, every space in Ironmongers’ Hall is grand and unique, making an interesting backdrop to any corporate function or event. Four rooms are available for hire, with exclusive use available for large conferences and events where different rooms are needed. The experienced and flexible team will help you host breakfast events, dinners, meetings, seminars, or full-day functions, with inhouse technical specialists who can add all your modern technology needs to this historic venue.

Minutes from the City and multiple tube stations, Ironmongers’ Hall has all the convenience of a modern corporate events venue, with the grandeur and flair hard to find anywhere else.

Venue Testimonials

We were looking for a place that would feel intimate, but formal enough to impress the many guests who were flying in from overseas. The venue itself is stunning, the great hall, the reception room - it takes one's breath away, but what really impressed us was the kindness and professionalism of the team. [...] The food was delicious, the atmosphere amazing - it really was a magical evening.

Lovely dining function room with minstrels gallery. There is a beautiful reception room which has the largest tapestry - the whole room is covered by William Morris tapestry wall covering - stunning.
