Each week, we pick one of our favourite venues and explain why it’s made the cut
A new permanent exhibition in the Victorian Engine Rooms at Tower Bridge
, has put this venue back on our radar. The upgrade will tell the story of coal stokers and engineers who worked to raise the bridge 20-30 times a day, with never displayed photographs and new films, and is a great add-on to any corporate or private function inside, next to the original coal-driven engines.
What’s so good about it?
For over 100 years, the twin turrets of Tower Bridge have been one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Hosting an event inside is not only special, but still something of a surprise to many guests. Our favourite space is the high-level Walkways. Linking the north and south towers and hovering 42m above the Thames, its £1m refurbishment in 2015 saw a glass floor added with views into the water below. St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London and the Shard are also within sight and make for a striking backdrop as the sky turns a dusty pink at sundown.
Why do bookers love it?
All the catering is done by Seasoned Events, so bookers can be sure of seasonal dishes and top British ingredients. Add in that the team can also organise floral displays, entertainment, glassware and furniture specific to your event, and everything gets a whole lot easier.
