Five reasons to book your next awards ceremony at the Old Billingsgate:
1 – One of London’s biggest and most versatile events venues
Old Billingsgate has three flexible events spaces which are perfect for awards ceremonies, conferences and other high-impact events.
Hire the beautiful Grand Hall, which has an impressive ornate sky-lit ceiling, 40,000 square feet of space, and a capacity of up to 1,800 (for dinners). Or choose the trendy vault, a stunning underground venue with exposed brickwork and space for up to 600 (for dinners). Old Billingsgate is also home to the smart and contemporary Gallery, a bright main space with white beams, wonderful views of the Thames, and a capacity of 230 (for dinners).
2 – A stunning riverside location near the heart of the City
This luxury London awards ceremony venue is just a few minutes’ walk from London Bridge, the Monument to the Great Fire of London, and the medieval Tower of London. It’s also within easy reach of Monument tube (Circle and District), Fenchurch Street (rail), Cannon Street (Circle, District, rail), London Bridge (Jubilee, Northern, rail), and Tower Hill (Circle, District), so it’s easily accessible for guests travelling from outer London or further afield.
3 – A charming 19th century building
This enormous Grade II-Listed landmark dates to the Victorian times, when it was the largest fish market in the world, replacing the earlier Billingsgate Market at Lower Thames Street.
