Conference Centre

Next to London Bridge and at the heart of Bankside, next door to the Shard and the newly-redeveloped London Bridge Station and piazza, the rooms offer unrestricted views of the Thames and the City - yet they are perfect for quiet, concentrated reflection and strategic planning.

London Bridge Station is just a few minutes away - but your conference and seminar will take place in what seems like another world amidst light oak and polished Portland stone and an energising sense of openness.

Virtual Venue Visit

Southwark Cathedral is not only a place of worship, but also caters to a wide range of events. It sits at the heart of Bankside, close to London Bridge with rooms of varying size available for both day and evening hire.
