The Victorian Grade II listed Old Billingsgate is a versatile London event venue to suit any occasion. On first impression it may not look luxurious, but with expert set design and great production, it’s a fabulous space to bring extraordinary visions to life.

Located on the bank of the River Thames at the site of an eighteenth century fish market, Old Billingsgate’s three separate spaces range from a capacity of 500 to 2,500 guests. The Grand Hall, The Vault and The Gallery are available to be hired separately or together for your next luxury party or event. These spaces provide a blank canvas, able to be styled to fit your event however you wish. Whether you’re looking for a unique London wedding venue or a versatile party space for a corporate event, Old Billingsgate has a space to accommodate any function.

The Grand Hall at Old Billingsgate: one of the most singular wedding venues London has to offer

Boasting more than 40,000 square feet of space, The Grand Hall is the largest of the three Old Billingsgate wedding venues, with room for 2,500 guests or 1,800 diners. The hall features a triple-height ceiling with natural sky-lighting, creating an unforgettable first impression for your attendees.

The panorama from the Grand Hall’s terrace overlooks the grandeur of the River Thames, with London Bridge, Tower Bridge and The Shard all in clear view. This historic and iconic London scenery can provide the perfect backdrop to photographs of your Old Billingsgate wedding, while the terrace is the ideal place for your guests to drink in the sunshine and let the majesty of their surroundings sink in.

The Vault and The Gallery: London party venues for every occasion

Beyond The Great Hall, Old Billingsgate offers two further spaces which can be booked on their own, or alongside the former market’s flagship event venue. Snapdragon can customise both The Vault and The Gallery to the needs of any luxury party event, with space to accommodate hundreds of guests.

Lauded for its flexibility, The Vault at Old Billingsgate is an underground London events venue like no other. The Victorian vaulted ceilings and exposed brickwork have been modernised with modern lighting fittings and an AV system, allowing you to set the mood for your event instantly, whatever the occasion.

While it may be the smallest of Old Billingsgate’s three events areas, The Gallery still provides a spacious, modern counterpart to the historic architecture of The Vault. Situated on the second floor of the building, The Gallery offers arched beams and glass panels in its ceiling, giving the space an airy atmosphere, whilst the windows give guests a spectacular view of the River Thames. As with every luxury events space within Old Billingsgate, The Gallery is completely customisable, making it ideal for a corporate event or private dinner, a product launch or a luxury party.

Whichever part of Old Billingsgate you’re looking to hire for your next luxury event, Snapdragon can help you or your organisation make it one you and your guests will never forget. Contact our team of events planners today with your requirements, and we can take it from there.
