About this space

This grand gallery-style room boasts high ceilings and an impressive entryway, as your guests arrive using the main staircase. Lined with several historical paintings and busts, this elegant room is flexible and neutral, suitable for lectures, workshops, training and networking events.

Wellcome East is directly connected to Wellcome West, creating one large space able to handle bigger occasions. When used together, Wellcome East lends itself nicely as a space for catering or a reception area, with its own dedicated large servery.
