Lancaster House is the only unaltered survivor of a group of extravagant private palaces which were a focus of social and political life in Victorian and Edwardian London.
The house began as a Royal residence called York House when it was commissioned by the ‘Grand Old’ Duke of York in 1825. Lancaster House offers a number of venue hire options for different types of events.From 1830 until 1911 it was the residence of the Dukes of Sutherland and renamed Stafford House. In 1914 its lease was bought by a Lancastrian, Lord Leverhulme, and was given its present name.
A great location for a venue hire in the heart of the City on the North bank of the River Thames, stands a striking, historic building that is a remarkable part of London’s heritage.
Old Billingsgate encompasses three versatile spaces and a beautiful terrace with unrivalled views of Tower Bridge, City Hall, The Shard and London Bridge.
