Described by English Heritage as 'The grandest example of a Victorian Ballroom in existence', the Ballroom is the centrepiece of our London's most central venue. The high ceilings, impressive chandeliers, grand columns, stained glass windows and ornate detailing all ensure that your event will not be forgotten. Hidden behind its classic looks the Ballroom also boasts cutting-edge intelligent lighting and 3D holographic ensuring you never have to compromise.
Previously, The Ballroom has been used as the backdrop for several music videos i.e George Ezra’s Amazon Music Christmas Song ‘Come On Home For Christmas’ and ‘Pardon Me’ featuring Professor Green, Laura Mvula, Wilkinson and Ava Lily as well as movie scenes i.e. W.E. directed by Madonna
The Old Billiard Room and Annex are the most adaptable of our central London venue spaces. The combination of white walls, mirror details and subtle architectural touches create the perfect blank canvas spaces. The versatility of the space makes it a stunning and flexible backdrop.
The Old Billiard Room and Annex have been used as crowd holding spaces for hair, makeup, costumes and green room by companies like Netflix, Amazon Prime and The BBC.
