Southwark Cathedral

A surprising and unspoiled location, impeccable service, unique and historic spaces


Our prestigious location in SE1 a stones throw from London Bridge Station, is exceptionally suited to staging a variety of events. Ample space with striking unique features, flooded with natural light and equipped with all the comforts and functionality required to exceptionally welcome and spoil your guests. Daytime and evening hire are available.

The Nave accommodates 600-800 for a drinks reception or 100-150 for a sit-down dinner.  Supported by a highly experienced team, the Cathedral space provides event planners with a magnificent backdrop that speaks for itself.  The space is perfect for product launches, dinners, receptions, awards ceremonies and more, with a plethora of off-shoot spaces within the same foot-print allow you to build in additional breakout areas. The Nave has ample square footage for gatherings in those large numbers that are difficult to place in other venues - this is entertaining on a grand scale.  

Our two outdoor spaces, the Churchyard and Millennium Courtyard, can accommodate up to 700 and 400 respectively.  In this unrivalled location these two rare outside spaces are highly prized.  A beautiful setting for Summer parties, relaxed BBQs and networking events, clients can also chose to use the space for a Marquee reception in colder months.

With six fully equipped conference and meeting rooms, accommodating up to 250 delegates, you’ll find the ideal event space in our beautiful suite of rooms on the river side of Southwark Cathedral. There is a flexible mix of atmospheric and contemporary medium to large sized rooms with a complement of two smaller syndicate rooms at your disposal too. AV equipment and technical support are all included to ensure your meetings are hassle free.  

Our conference and meeting rooms are equip with flat screen TVs or data projector and screen with laptop, Wi-Fi in all rooms and built-in PA with hearing induction loop. Video conferencing is also available along with live streaming or recording capability.
