The Great Hall is our largest room and by far the grandest. With its high vaulted ceilings and oak panelled walls this is a unique space for any event.
This prestigious room can stage many types of events such as product launches, an informal buffet for 250, a formal seated three course dinner for 220 guests, or a conference for up to 250 delegates. It is the preferred room to contain the many royal visits and ambassadorial receptions the College has enjoyed over the years.
Originally constructed in the 1930s as a ballroom and refectory for the residents of London House, the room is still used today as a dining hall for our College student Members. By day, the Great Hall, with its many windows and overall space is an ideal setting for large conferences and events. With the lights dimmed and the candles lit, the room's character is transformed and it becomes the perfect setting for an elegant formal dinner.
