About this space

The Tent is a unique space located just a stone's throw from the thoroughfare of Bishopsgate and Liverpool St. Station. A 16-sided structure, made in Saudi Arabia and covered in woven goat's hair, the tent is ideal for meetings, workshops/training events and parties. Along with the stunning garden courtyard it is a real oasis in the City!

It is carpeted and fully heated, with atmospheric lighting. The tent is circular with cushioned bench seating around the edge. There are no tables in the tent and people are asked to remove their shoes before entering.

The undercover glass foyer that overlooks the courtyard garden may be used to set out food and refreshments

Second time hiring this venue for a birthday! Great venue, beautiful vibe, super warm heating, lovely lighting. Blankets and cushions provided and tables and everything was perfectly clean. Kitchen was so useful and we were able to make tea coffees and refill waters etc. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Everyone had a wonderful time! Thank you.

The venue was perfect for my 19th birthday party with around 20-25 people. The tent was spacious, and the toilets were clean. The fountain and the glass room was also a great touch, as we placed food in the glass room. The venue allowed loud music which was a positive. The staff helped us with lighting and allowed me extend by 2 hours on the day. The location is very central and for the price is very affordable.

Really unusual venue with helpful staff (Nelson). Our guests loved it! Easy walk from Liverpool Street station. In better weather the outdoor space would have a bonus, but the tent and serving area were warm and welcoming. Note that you do need to bring your own glasses, plates, cutlery.

A very basic kitchen and cutlery/crockery/glasses would be a great improvement. (NB We did know there would be no kitchen when booking).

Great location and venue. Need a sink for us to use!


The location is a stunning venue situated near Liverpool Street. It provides a fantastic combination of intimacy and grandeur with original 14th-century arches providing the backdrop to the main space. Destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1993, it has been rebuilt with modern features and offers a unique and memorable space for any event. It is equipped with fast WiFi and has an in-house projector and sound system available in the main space.

The Bedouin Tent is a circular space, ideal for meetings and away-days, intimate gatherings and workshops, while the Nave offers a spectacular space for larger events.

This is a place like no other!
