Trinity House

Trinity House is the working home of the General Lighthouse Authority of England and Wales and is located on Tower Hill with direct views of the Tower of London. The Georgian exterior built in 1764 showcases a raft of maritime treasures and artefacts including the brass bell of the Royal Yacht Britannia. The south-facing House is available for private hire on an exclusive basis only and is a popular venue for prestigious corporate and social events and weddings all year round.

Behind the building’s imposing neo-classical façade, designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794, are five graceful banqueting and conference rooms – The Library, Court Room, Pepys Room, Luncheon Room and Reading Room, all catering for formal banqueting and weddings ranging in capacity from 10 to 130 seated places. The House’s particularly beautiful Reception Hall, with its sweeping, twin-curved staircase, and Quarterdeck first floor corridor houses remarkable maritime artefacts - including the bell from the Royal Yacht Britannia.

The oval-shaped Library is the venue’s most spacious room seating up to 130 and characterised by a minstrel’s gallery and beautiful 16th and 17th stained glass windows.  The room houses a fascinating collection of antique silverware and its elegant proportions and dramatic view of the Tower of London make it a uniquely English setting for important celebrations.  The adjacent Reading Room is an option for a pre-reception private lunch or dinner for up to 10 people, and the ancillary Pepys Room to one end of The Library provides a flexible addition for banquet set-up or use as a separate dance-floor. 

Accommodating up to 130 standing and 60 seated, the south-facing Court Room is suffused with natural light from three large windows and offers sweeping views encompassing the Tower of London to the left and the spectacular new Shard glass tower to the far right.  The floor is covered with a carpet featuring the arms of Trinity House – the second largest single-weave carpet in the British Isles -  while allegorical painted scenery restored by the famous pre-Raphaelite artist, William Homan Hunt dominates the ceiling.  Lined with imposing portraits of former Masters of Trinity House, the adjoining Luncheon Room is an ideal for intimate seated events for 20 or receptions for up to 40.
