A smaller conference/exhibition venue in the city of London. Close to Monument and Tower Hill tube stations. I guess the services provided depend on the organisers, but the location is OK, and the staff working here were pleasant and helpful

Very low of floor space for exhibitors but it looked ok. Close to the Monument Tube and the Premier Inn Hub hotel. Had the lunch time 3 course meal served here with guests, on the 2nd floor. Was very impressed with the food, and the service. Would recommend using their meal services to entertain during a conference show

Whilst it retains its shape as the old fish market it is a building which is completely refurbished as a conference/dinner venue. Perfect for the function can hold around 1,500 I think. Does what it says if you need a city location for a function.

It is huge and has separate areas for cocktail reception and the main event. had an amazing night with the great views of London bridge and... More

Our work Christmas party was held here, commencing with drinks on arrival, a lovely 3 course meal and a fantastic DJ and dancers. There was a quiet lounge area to retreat to with a free Pick & Mix stand. Bars around the venue which for London were reasonably priced.

Went for an Industry Expo, & very fit for purpose. Very Central, walking distance from Fenchurch St (I know, I had to walk back in torrential rain). Tower Hill, Bank & Monument Stations-Don't bother getting a Cab (as I did, going), a 10 Minute walk is a 20 minute ride. Essentially it is a great big, enclosed open space &... More

The north bank of the Thames has hardly any historic buildings of note. Nearly all have been pushed aside in favour of modern office blocks. One exception is Old Billingsgate fish market. Built in 1876 it operated until it was relocated to new premises in docklands in 1982. Luckily this Grade II listed building has been given new life as... More

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
