The Hoxton Southwark

The Hoxton Southwark is the latest venue to open for The Hoxton portfolio and opened towards the end of 2019. It is located a stone’s throw away from Southwark Bridge making it close to Waterloo and therefore very accessible for guests travelling into London.

The hotel is cozy yet vibrant as The Hoxton aim to give their guests a home away from home feeling when they visit. This concept runs throughout the entire hotel with one of their bedroom options even being call ‘The Cosy’. In addition, there is a slight warehouse feel to the hotel due to the huge windows and array of copper furnishings.

The Hoxton Southwark has 192 rooms, two restaurants, 6 meeting spaces, including their Apartment. The apartment can be hired exclusively and is made up of five rooms. It can cater for 130 guests standing and makes the perfect summer drinks reception space for larger numbers.

Their amazing Seabird restaurant provides a rooftop terrace which is beautifully decorated in pastel pinks and greens, creating the perfect backdrop for a summer get together. It has a capacity of 150 standing plus the use of the terrace. The terrace is fully equipped with blankets, heaters and a retractable roof so your guests can continue to enjoy the rest of their evening even when it gets a little chilly.
