City of London Venue Hire
Discover the best venues for events in the City of London
The historic City of London, with its square mile once surrounded by Roman walls, used to be all that existed of the capital. However, after centuries of expansion and urbanisation, ‘the City’ is now just a tiny part of what has become the massive metropolis of Greater London.
The combination of The Great Fire of London in 1666 and the World War 2 Blitz damaged much of the area, but parts of the Roman walls, the medieval street pattern and the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral still remain.
The City is now home to the UK’s business and financial powerhouse, playing host to the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange. This coupled with the area’s small residential population meant that until fairly recently the City could turn into a ghost town on weekends, but now there are a number of thriving bars, restaurants and shops that are well worth a visit.
There are also a number of iconic landmarks to spot, including the Gherkin, the Museum of London and The Barbican. These venues can even be hired out for events, with their recognisable architecture offering a unique backdrop for parties, meetings or private dining.
