Bishopsgate Institute is a historic wedding venue in Central London, England, just two minutes' walk from Liverpool Street Station. This unique destination boasts many atmospheric settings for playing out the love story of your dreams. From the cosy library and beautiful ballroom to the bright and airy upper hall, your one-of-a-kind vision and style can be brought to life. Best of all, the Institute is a registered charity, and each penny of your booking will go towards the building's upkeep and local programming. We create warm and welcoming weddings, and we are a proudly LGTBQ+ inclusive venue.

Facilities and Capacity

At the heart of the Bishopsgate Institute is its Great Hall ballroom space, which can hold up to 400 guests.

It's also equipped with uplighting and sound-minimizing panels. If you're planning a more intimate celebration, choose between the beautiful Upper Hall or a vintage-inspired soiree in the Victorian library. Whatever your vision, each cosy corner of this venue invites you to express your style.
