Southwark Cathedral is London’s oldest Gothic church with many historic ties to Bankside. Located close to London Bridge Station, the cathedral is not only a place of worship, but also caters to a wide range of events.

With stunning views of Bankside’s riverfront, the venue’s Millennium Building hosts six conference and meeting rooms that can accommodate numbers up to 120 people. From the impressive Garry Weston Library, to smaller spaces such as the Desmond Tutu room, this modern conference centre is an ideal choice for intimate meetings to large training sessions.

The cathedral itself is also available for hire, with the Nave providing a dramatic backdrop for evening receptions for up to 800 people. For those looking for outdoor event space or a film location, the churchyard next to Borough Market offers a tranquil setting and the Millennium Courtyard right by the river is ideal for marquee hire. Both areas can accommodate up to 500 people.

Everything worked perfectly for us. An excellent venue.


Thank you for the care and attention…so pleased with the room and all the amenities and that coordination of all the details from the facilities to the catering will be professionally managed. It is always a pleasure to work with all of you.
