Historic events venue in the City of London
On Tower Hill in London, Trinity House is a stunning 18thcentury building, the working home to a charity devoted to the welfare of merchant mariners. Perfectly located in the City, it makes an impressive venue for a variety of corporate events.
A short walk from Tower Hill underground station and the River Thames, past Trinity Square Gardens, Trinity House stands enclosed by iron railings and cobbled paving with striking views of the Tower of London. Behind the building’s imposing neo-classical facade, designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794, are five graceful banqueting and conference rooms – The Library, Court Room, Pepys
Room, Luncheon Room and Reading Room, all catering for corporate events and available on an exclusive hire basis.
The House’s Reception Hall is particularly beautiful with its sweeping, twin-curved staircase, and Quarterdeck first floor corridor which houses remarkable maritime artefacts – including the bell from the Royal Yacht Britannia – bearing testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation’s maritime history. The oval-shaped Library is the venue’s most spacious room seating up to 130 (180 standing) and is characterised by a minstrels’ gallery and beautiful 16th and 17th century stained-glass windows. The room has an impressive collection of antique silverware, and its elegant proportions make it a unique setting for important events.
Accommodating up to 130 standing and 60 seated, the south-facing Court Room contains antique portraits and is suffused with natural light from three large windows. It offers sweeping views encompassing the Tower of London to the left and the spectacular Shard to the right.
The House’s rich history is omnipresent throughout the building with valuable paintings and antiques showcasing its remarkable nautical heritage. In 1514 a young Henry VIII granted the charitable Guild of Mariners a Royal Charter to regulate the water traffic on the River Thames; their powers were later extended by Elizabeth I. The patronage of the Crown continues with the current Master of the Company, HRH The Princess Royal, filling a role held in former centuries by, among others, the diarist Samuel Pepys, the Duke of Wellington and William Pitt.
