A Venue Steeped in History

It was once one of the largest Victorian fish markets in London, so it goes without saying that Old Billingsgate is a beautiful venue steeped in history. This grade II listed building was, during the 19th century, the biggest fish market in the world.

But it has since been renovated into a beautiful event space that can be used as the venue for a wide range of events.

Retaining most of its original interior, this is an event space that is sure to impress. With triple height ceilings and great views throughout the building, any event you host here is sure to be a memorable one.

Fantastic Central Location

One of the great advantages of Old Billingsgate is its ideal location on the banks of the River Thames. With picturesque views of many of London’s most famous landmarks, it’s a great location to host all kinds of event.

We love it because of the fantastic transport links available, with Monument, Tower Hill and London Bridge underground stations all within walking distance.​

Varied Spaces Available

With over 7,800 square meters of flexible space, we know that there will be a space that suits your event at Old Billingsgate. Over the various spaces, corporate conferences, awards ceremonies and much more can be catered for.

  • The Grand Hall

This hall boasts an impressive triple height ceiling as well as a mezzanine level that spans the entire centre of the room. This is the biggest of all of the rooms and it can accommodate up to 1,700 seated guests, with the number increasing to 2,000 for a conference and 3,000 for a reception.

We would recommend the Grand Hall for people who are looking for venues that can accommodate large numbers in grand settings.

  • The Front Terrace

Attached to the Grand Hall is the Front Terrace. With beautiful views over the Thames and some of London’s most famous landmarks like Tower Bridge, the Shard and HMS Belfast, it’s a beautiful location for a summer event that makes the most of the British summertime.

Ideal for receptions, we think that space is a real bonus when hiring Old Billingsgate.​

  • The Gallery

The Gallery is a more contemporary space. But stunning river views are still a great feature of this room. It is a slightly smaller venue, but it can still accommodate 200 guests for a seated dinner, 600 for a standing reception and 300 for a conference.

  • The Vaults

An incredibly atmospheric and intriguing space, the vaults are an underground event space that could be perfect for your summer event. Providing a perfect contrast to the Gallery and the Grand Hall, this space is ideal for those searching for London event spaces that are a little bit different. We would recommend this space for product launches, exclusive events or just a good old fashioned party, The Vaults are a really versatile space with lots of character.​

The Vaults have a great capacity, and can host up to 900 hundred guests for a reception. If you would prefer this space to be the setting for a dinner event, there is room for up to 600 guests.

If you are looking at hosting a dinner at this venue, we would recommend talking to Create about catering options.​
