Which venue should you choose with Ultimate Experience?

Stuck on whether to choose Austin Friars or Glaziers Hall for your next event? Whatever you’re planning, there are plenty of advantages to choosing either venue.


Why choose Austin Friars?

Near the heart of the City, Austin Friars is a fascinating Grade II-Listed building with a grand high ceiling and beautiful interior features like stained-glass windows and arches. The building dates all the way back to the 13th century, when the population of London was probably no more than about 50,000.


Capacity and facilities

Austin Friars is well suited to small and medium events, with enough space for up to 220 guests for standing receptions/buffets, 180 for conferences, or 140 for seated dinners. It is equipped with full production and AV, a DJ and disco, and ambient lighting, and is just moments from Moorgate, Liverpool Street and Bank stations.


Christmas at Austin Friars

This year, Austin Friars will have a magical gold and black accent theme, with Christmas foliage, golden candelabras, and vibrant festive lighting. What’s not to love?


Why choose Glaziers Hall?

Offering superb views of the Thames, Glaziers Hall is next to London Bridge and comprises five luxury venues which are ideal for private functions such as charity dinners and corporate events. Dating back more than 200 years, and replacing the original Glaziers Hall that was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, this venue is also just minutes from the famous Borough Market, a source for many of the ingredients used for its seated dinners and buffets.


Capacity and facilities

Glaziers Hall is also great for small or medium events, accommodating between 150 and 450 guests for receptions/buffets and 80-240 for seated dinners. This venue also benefits from full production and AV, ambient lighting, a disco, and a DJ.


Christmas at Glaziers Hall

At Christmas, this venue takes on a magical, mystical forest theme, with snow-dusted fir trees and twinkling lights to create the perfect winter-wonderland look. Another magical Christmas party space!
