;

The River Rooms are a suite of blank canvas rooms situated in the New Wing, with a creative and artistic feel to their visual appearance. The rooms are open plan, and traces of former tenants, exhibitions and experiences can be seen faintly on walls, which are highlighted by custom-built lighting track across all rooms. The look is completed with dramatic original fireplaces and exposed brick archway. This venue is best suited for fashion enquiries or clients seeking an exhibition or for a product launch space.
