Create beautiful memories that will last forever by holding your wedding celebration at Banking Hall.
Located in the heart of London, our iconic Art Deco venue is Grade II listed and has been restored to its finest glamour and grandeur. With a Mezzanine floor looking out over the City, the space can be arranged just how you’d like.
Our experienced and dedicated events team will be on hand from start to finish too, meaning you can relax and enjoy every moment of this incredible day.
Package or Bespoke? (Or a bit of both…)
Our carefully curated wedding packages take the stress out of planning your big day. Of course we understand that you might want to add your own personal touches, too, or create something unique just for you. Either way, we’ll find the perfect solution.
Built in the 1930s, Banking Hall is beautifully designed to hold a ceremony. Its architecture will leave guests in awe, and couples swooning. Plus, everything can be arranged according to the couple's taste.
If the newlyweds we party with all year round are anything to go by, the first thing you did, after the shock and delight of the proposal, was make a list – who do you want to invite? Banking Hall can seat up to 280 guests for dinner in the main hall, up to 800 for a standing reception, and we also have intimate spaces for smaller affairs. We’ve got you covered!
DIY or don’t lift a finger?
Obviously you are our main VIP – if you say you want to handle the flowers, the music and the decorations, that’s fine by us. BUT we have really special relationships with our year round VIPs (Vendors in Partnership) who can provide flowers, hotels, DJs, photobooths, the works. We’re happy to talk you through all the options and put together a package that works with your budget.
It's delicious first
Our food and booze offering is truly one of a kind. Our Chief Booze Engineer’s unique infusions are a sure fire hit at any reception. Our Head Exec Chef Ronnie Murray has given up celebrity cheffing to dedicate himself to making your day unforgettable. We’ll invite you and your fiance to a tasting ahead of your big day and blow your socks off! Whether it’s a sit down meal, or our ‘Cornucopia Counters’ we have something to suit you!
Our experienced and dedicated events planners are on hand from start to finish so you can actually enjoy the build up, and the big day! We have packages to take the stress out of decision making, or we’re more than happy to put together a bespoke event if you want to add your own personal touches. Once we’ve had a chat, we’ll invite you to come down and meet us, while we show you around the venue.
