Beautiful Rooms - The Crypts, Guildhall London

Thursday, June 17, 2021 - 09:45

Sitting side by side beneath the grandeur of the Great Hall within the Guildhall lie the largest surviving medieval Crypts in London — and arguably the most atmospheric.

Dating back to 1042 and while completely different in style, both are equally as evocative.  With a maximum combined capacity of 500, the East and West Crypts offer the perfect setting for unusual, distinctive events underneath spectacular vaulted ceilings decorated with carved bosses of shields and flowers. 

Either as a complement to Great Hall, or more intimately on their own, the Crypts provide a warm, welcoming and fascinating space in which to host a wide variety of corporate events.

What’s more, each Crypt is showered with light emanating from the beautiful stained glass windows depicting historically important people or events that help tell the story of the City of London. 

The magnificence of the venue space will most certainly add that ‘WOW’ factor to any event!
