Tell Me about BANKING HALL
Located in the centre of the Square Mile in central London, Banking Hall is a stunning luxury Art Deco wedding venue well worth adding to your ‘to-visit’ list. The Grade ll listed building was formally the headquarters of Lloyds Bank, but now serves as a fantastic venue for your special day.
The restored interior still retains many of the original features, so there is a charming feel to the venue, and the grand staircase provides a particular talking-point (and the perfect backdrop for saying “I do”). Outside, just a stone’s throw away is the Bank of England and many couples choose to pop across with their guests for group shots on the beautiful stone steps. Thanks to Banking Hall’s fantastic location, a short walk will take you to St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge for couple portraits that incorporate iconic London sights. If it’s a city wedding you are after, it’s hard to find anywhere more central.
Whilst the neither the Main Hall or The Counting Room need any additional styling to make them wedding-ready, you are free to make the space your own, and you will have exclusive use of both rooms for the duration of your celebration.
The venue is just a stone’s throw from Bank Underground Station (Central, Northern, Waterloo & City lines) and therefore easily accessible for both Londoners and guests arriving from outside the capital.
What makes BANKING HALL special?
The building alone is breath-taking, but there are several other features that make it stand out from the crowd.
The Main Hall features a built-in stage and dancefloor, meaning that following your wedding breakfast the room can be turned around ready for a night of partying in next to no time. Speaking of food, the team behind Banking Hall – Camm & Hooper – pride themselves on creating incredible and diverse menus that cater for all tastes and dietary requirements.
If you’re a lover of cocktails, you’ll be spoilt for choice here as there are over 50 to choose from. Add to that, a large collection of new and old-world wines alongside barista coffees and homemade cordials and it’s fair to say no one will be going thirsty on your wedding day here. Dry hire is also available should you have specific cultural or religious requirements, and the team are happy to recommend outside suppliers to suit your specific needs.
When booking your wedding at Banking Hall you’ll have a dedicated wedding planner on hand to help you create a bespoke event. A member of the operations team will also be there on the day to make sure everything runs smoothly so you can simply enjoy spending time with your guests (and each other).
How many guests can I invite to BANKING HALL?
Banking Hall can seat 280 guests for dinner and up to 700s guest for a standing event. Capacity may be reduced by any audio-visual equipment that you choose to incorporate into your day.
