Iconic wedding venue with photogenic surroundings


Banking Hall has a rich history serving as the headquarters of Lloyd’s Bank until 2002. Beautifully and sensitively converted into a remarkable event space, it still retains many of the original features, offering a sense of historical grandeur as well as an abundance of character and charm, making it the perfect backdrop and natural home for elegant wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Our luxury wedding venue is the perfect backdrop to your special day


Grade II listed, Art Deco former bank

Banking Hall is now an exclusive use venue from one of London’s most established events teams, Camm & Hooper. Built in the 1930s, Banking Hall existed for many years as the busy headquarters of Lloyd’s Bank. A unique Art Deco landmark in the heart of the City, it overlooks the Bank of England and is one of the most enviable, unusual venues for hire in London. After becoming part of the Camm & Hooper collection, we instructed the renowned Russell Sage studios to refurbish the space, and incorporate the latest events technology whilst maintaining its glorious grandeur. We opened the doors to Banking Hall in 2014, and since then have welcomed corporate dinners, receptions and awards ceremonies, as well as fashion, film and music events and private parties.
