The two rooms give you ample flexibility for a varied event flow, such as a cocktail reception in the more intimate space followed by a sit-down banquet and dance floor in the Main Hall. Alternatively, couples can exclusively use one area for their event, using the other as a cloakroom and storage space.

The team at Banking Hall went out of their way to ensure we had the day we had always been planning. The venue is amazing and is so versatile to go from wedding ceremony to smart dinner and to a party in the evening. We were blown away by the quality of the food and drinks; it was modern, fresh and so beautifully presented. I would, without question, recommend the venue, team and services provided to anyone looking to run a private or corporate event in London as it truly is the best I have come across.
