Grade II listed building Austin Friars boasts a prime position in the heart of the City, just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Bank stations. Benefiting from both stunning original features and clean, contemporary design, the venue creates a unique setting for winter celebrations.

Ornate stained glass windows take pride of place in the classically designed main space, which benefits from high ceilings for an elegant look. An understated colour scheme ensures that branding opportunities abound, whilst sound and lighting equipment will also enable you to make this space your own.

Originally built as a monastic priory, the event space of Austin Friars is a popular tourist attraction dating back to 1253. The current Portland stone building offers a grand event space for entertaining in the City.

The centrepiece of this prestigious venue is the main space, a spectacular room boasting high ceilings and an elegant, classic design. Here up to 250 guests can be accommodated for standing receptions, or up to 140 can enjoy a sumptuous seated dinner.

An opulent room perfect for grand seasonal events, the main space lends itself perfectly to Christmas entertaining in the heart of the City. Impressive stained glass windows double as impressive focal points throughout the venue, adding a splash of colour to this unique event space. Adjacent to the main space is a smaller room, which can serve as a bar, or even a setting for after dinner entertainment.
