The Trafalgar Tavern was built in 1837 and sits on the bank of the River Thames, welcoming visitors and providing the sights for visitors to Greenwich for over 150 years. Charles Dickens was once a familiar visitor to this historic tavern, and the Nelson Room became famous for holding its renowned whitebait dinners.
In more recent times, the Tavern has become available for private hire, and has become one of the most attractive and most popular venues in the heart of the City of London to celebrate a wedding.
Trafalgar Tavern’s historic characteristics and charm both inside the building and out remains unchanged, with beautiful balconies and bay windows that overlook the Thames. To give you a sense of City living, the Nelson Room and the Admiral’s Gallery Bar have been recently re-furbished, and now ooze beautiful late regency magnificence.
The first floor of the Tavern can be hired out in its entirety exclusively for your wedding. The venue will be available for the entire day, so there will be plenty of time for your suppliers to set up and for you to take photos of the room should you want to.
The Nelson Room can accommodate up to 200 guests for a sit down dinner, and 350 guests for a standing reception. This room is also licensed for civil weddings.
Should you want to hold a more intimate ceremony, The Nile Restaurant is the perfect alternative space. Located on the ground floor of our venue, it has its own entrance from Crane Street and also features its own bar. This room can seat 70 dining guests, and 120 for a standing reception.
