Spaces at HQS Wellington


That this room was once the ship’s engine room means it now enjoys double height ceilings make for an atmospheric dining space. Accessed via an impressive teak divided ornate staircase, the Court Room is adorned with the Master Mariners’ collection of silver and gold and also features a number of framed antique charts. The room is fully equipped with in-built AV equipment and Air Conditioning. It is an impressive function venue for meetings, dinners, AGMs and more.


The Committee Room, situated on the upper deck of the ship, comfortably seats 16 people boardroom style. Panelled in light oak, it commands extensive views over the river Thames and the Embankment.


The beautiful Model Room on the middle deck is full of marine artefacts including ships’ bells, medals, and (as the name suggests) a priceless collection of antique model ships. The room is suitable for a variety of events, but is particularly apposite for small meetings, intimate lunches and cocktail receptions ahead of dinners in the Court Room.


The whole ship can be hired for larger receptions for up to 220. Guests can make the most of the spaces on board including the magnificent Court Room and stunning Quarter Deck which looks over the Thames. It is an ideal choice for both corporate and private events.


The Quarter Deck is one of the main reasons to hire the Wellington. With unrivalled views up and down the river, the Quarter Deck is a unique open-air venue. This space, covered by an awning, is ideal for summer cocktail parties, receptions and BBQs.

About HQS Wellington


The historic HQS Wellington Ship is a unique and original venue for your event. Built in 1933, she is the last surviving member of the Grimsby class of sloops, which served valiantly during the Second World War. She was purchased by the Honourable Company of the Master Mariners in 1947 and has been fully refitted for civilian use since. She is moored on the Thames by the Embankment, opposite Temple tube station.
