About this space

The top two floors of this world-renowned building are one of the most iconic spaces in London to host your upcoming event. The glass dome at the top of The Gherkin along with 360-degree views of London provide an unforgettable setting for corporate events, parties, weddings and private events.

Facing west on level 39 of The Gherkin is the Helix Restaurant, capturing arguably London's most beautiful sunsets. Once guests climb the sleek granite staircase to level 40, the Iris Bar opens up to not only offer panoramic City views but a glass overhead dome.

Helix and Iris can be hired exclusively and are ideal for business breakfasts, private parties and weddings for up to 260 guests.
