Just a short walk from Shadwell DLR station (one stop from Bank), Tobacco Dock is a magnificent Grade I-listed warehouse and one of the few venues in east London with large indoor and outdoor courtyards. Featuring impressive timber beams, the indoor sections absorb plenty of natural daylight and the entire venue can be hired for everything from consumer exhibitions to corporate meetings.
Tobacco Dock has over 16,000 square metres of blank canvas space that can be adapted to many different themes, from awards ceremonies in the opulent Great Gallery, to drinks receptions in the contemporary Dock Gallery.
At West India Quay near Canary Wharf DLR station, the Museum of London Docklands showcases the history of London from its Roman roots to the 21st century. From the archaeological discoveries in the Crossrail tunnel, to the expansion of the British empire and the Second World War, the museum offers a fascinating insight into the city’s cultural and economic development.
Today, the Museum of London Docklands can be hired for luxury corporate receptions for up to 1,000 people, or banquets for up to 350. It can also be used for conferences for up to 230 delegates, or wedding receptions for up to 350 guests.
In Surrey Quays, close to Canada Water Overground and Jubilee line station, Printworks opened in January of this year and is one of the largest venues in east London, boasting a capacity of 6,000!
