The Brewery, located in the heart of the city of London, is a versatile space that can accommodate a wide range of events, from Christmas parties and networking receptions to product launches and exhibitions. Hire the Brewery as one of the largest unobstructed event spaces in London, The Porter Tun. The Brewery was previously home to the Whitbread Brewery, which attracted many royal visits, including George III, Queen Charlotte, Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Brewing at this site continued until 1976 when the 225-year era came to an end.

The Porter Tun is the largest space at this large London venue and has a 170-foot king post timber roof, giving the space an unsupported span of 65 feet and a clear view across the room, making it ideal for award dinners. With a large raised balcony, it offers an ideal reception area or presentation platform. The Porter Tun can accommodate between 400 and 1,200 guests for a standing reception or up to 780 for a seated dinner dance.

The Smeaton Vaults is a smaller space that can accommodate up to 200 standing guests. With copper pipes around the walls and iron walkway revealing the Brewery’s past, this quirky, historic space is ideal for smaller conferences and receptions.

Alternatively, The King George Room, Queen Charlotte Room and Sugar Rooms are interconnecting and flexible spaces that offer exposed brickwork, lanterns and vaulted ceilings, for a modern and quirky feel.
