About this space

--LATE EXTENSIONS AVAILABLE--

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 a peaceful space ideal for meetings, workshops/training events, along with the stunning garden courtyard - a real oasis in the City!

It is carpeted and fully heated, with a range of atmospheric lighting options. 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 may be used for refreshments or to lay out items on a table.

The venue is so gorgeous and it was perfect for my Bridal shower. It was a very hot day, but the courtyard outside the tent is so shady and provides a very cool breeze. Perfect setting.

We were given the wrong contact person for the day, which was a bit confusing. But this was then easily resolved. Also, we were not able to cater onsite, so only had the option of using fingerfood- but this worked out well for me in the end!

We had a fantastic evening here for a hen do! The space is beautiful and we were able to have a fun evening all to ourselves. It’s in an amazing location, and the set up is gorgeous! Fanatic tent space, but also beautiful outside courtyard! We would highly recommend hiring the space, and we would definitely do so in the future. The caretaker was also very helpful when we needed assistance - thank you!

Beautiful location Little to no decoration needed Friendly caretaker Beautiful Spacious garden with tables and chairs

Nothing negative to say. The only thing to be mindful of is that parking is difficult in the area.

Nice location, and venue The guests loved the place, and I would like to consider using again, so long as we can have some items addressed

It was not clean inside the tent, I had to request for hoovering to be done during the time of my hire, the windows and area of inside the tent were dusty. The caretaker was a bit blunt and sharp with the helpers which wasn't very pleasant when they were trying to pack away the rubbish


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.

We can offer catering from light refreshments right up to a fully staffed service. Or, if you are an individual or small charity, simply bring your own and use our kitchen.

This is a place like no other!
