About this space

An impressive venue for a conference or party in the heart of London, with a capacity of up to 140 theatre-style.

Large windows on the east and west sides of the room fill the space with light and emphasise the beautiful Travertine marble, English oak and bronze interior.

Occupying a commanding position on the first floor of the Senate House tower, the hall is a versatile event venue, equally well suited to informal gatherings or elegant dining with beautifully dressed tables.

We have a piano in the Hall which can be used for a solo performance to enhance your event.
