London’s most impressive meeting and conference venue

Inspirational by design

An architectural marvel in the heart of London, Banqueting House is one of the capital’s most prestigious meeting spaces. Since 1622, it has played host to kings, queens and courtiers – and the building’s sheer scale and beauty continue to inspire its guests to this day.

The Main Hall

The Main Hall is a truly awe-inspiring venue for conferences and large meetings. Here, soaring Ionic columns lead the eye upwards to the magnificent ceiling, a Baroque masterpiece painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens.

The Main Room's opulent surroundings lend a sense of grandeur to any corporate event. Your guests will be dazzled and inspired in equal measure.

  • Up to 400 guests theatre style
  • Up to 280 guests cabaret style

The Undercroft

Once the setting for celebrations enjoyed by James I and his companions, the Undercroft makes a more intimate counterpart to the imposing Main Hall.

This atmospheric space has charm and character in abundance, and the cosy arches and rich acoustics make it a perfect setting for away days, meetings and conferences.

  • Up to 350 guests for standing drinks receptions
