Make your next corporate event remarkable at Westminster Abbey

Since its founding by Benedictine monks, hospitality has always been at the heart of Westminster Abbey – playing host to royal weddings, state occasions, and every coronation since 1066. Today, almost 1,000 years later, you can hire a truly unique and historic space in a place where history happens for your next corporate event.

Cheyneygates, hidden above the entrance to the Abbey’s cloisters, dates back to the 14th century and was the birthplace of Edward V – nephew of Richard III and one of the renowned “Princes in the Tower” makes an intriguing location for an intimate drinks reception, meeting or day conference.

The Cloisters at the heart of the Abbey form an elegant semi open-air arcade around a large lawned garth and offer a magical venue for a truly special large-scale dinner or reception.

The 14th-Century Cellarium with its vaulted ceiling makes the perfect setting for an atmospheric dinner and the contemporary Cellarium Terrace space, offering unique views of the Abbey’s West Towers, a fantastic area for hosting a pre-dinner drinks reception.

In June and July, a stylish marquee with a decked porch area makes College Garden – England’s oldest cultivated garden – an idyllic venue for a relaxed reception, formal gala dinner or corporate conference and lunch. Outside of the Summer months, College Garden is available to hire and organisers are welcome to construct a marquee structure to accommodate their own unique event needs.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries – opened in 2018 by HM Queen Elizabeth II – sit 52 feet above the Abbey floor and can be hired, in conjunction with a larger dinner event, as the exclusive setting for a drinks reception amongst the Abbey’s greatest treasures.

Private tours can also be booked as part of Corporate Hospitality packages at Westminster Abbey, meaning your guests can experience all the key areas of the Abbey (the Coronation Chair, Newton and Darwin, Lady Chapel, Poet’s Corner, the Quire and high Altar) and gain exclusive access to the Shrine of St. Edward the Confessor.
