With six fully equipped meeting rooms, two magnificent event spaces and two spacious outdoor areas, you’ll find the perfect event space at Southwark Cathedral.

Ideally located a stones throw from London Bridge and with excellent transport links, your guests will effortlessly locate our unique and historic event spaces. Save time and leave the details to our dedicated team – whether you’re booking for yourself or on behalf of someone else, you can be confident that your guests individual needs will be taken care of.

Accommodating up to 250 delegates, there is a flexible mix of atmospheric and contemporary medium to large conference and meeting spaces with a complement of two smaller syndicate rooms at your disposal too.

The magnificent Nave and Retrochoir accommodate up to 800 for a drinks reception or 100-150 for a dinner. With a backdrop that speaks for itself, these spaces have ample space for those large gatherings that are difficult to place elsewhere – this is entertaining on a grand scale.

Accommodating 700 and 400 guests respectively, guests can soak up the atmospheric of the hustle and bustle of the local area of Borough Market. In the colder months, the spaces are an excellent option for a marquee reception.
