About this space

To call The Royal Exchange ‘iconic’ would be putting it lightly. First built in 1566, the celebrated centre of trade has burned down twice over the course its history, and was last rebuilt in its original Roman style and reopened by Queen Victoria in 1844.

Since opening The Bar & Restaurant at The Royal Exchange in November 2018, we are now within the facility of one of the most unique and best-kept-secret event locations in London.

From breakfasts, lunches and afternoon tea’s, through to dinners, extravagant cocktail receptions & Wedding receptions - the Fortnum’s experience is now on hand in the City and as it was recently voted the ‘most Instagrammable Restaurant in London’ by the Evening Standard, it’s a guaranteed experience your guests won’t forget.
