Bridewell Theatre is a thriving off-west end venue built over the City of London's first swimming pool. This versatile space plays host to a range of production companies throughout the year and can also be transformed into a truly atmospheric ballroom, a magical cabaret venue or conference space. Early booking essential. The Victorian glass lantern roof, viewing gallery and changing rooms remain in situ, giving this historic venue a dramatic and surreal atmosphere. The tiled swimming pool itself is also still in place underneath the seating. WiFi throughout.


Complete with a portrait of 19th century writer Samuel Richardson hanging over a real working fireplace, The Salisbury room is perfect for a top level board meeting or small wedding ceremony.

The adjacent Caxton Room can be hired as a break-out room, registration area, or catering space to maximize capacity. High ceilings, large stained glass windows and parquet floors. Chandelier and uplighting with dimmer switch. Enquire for weekend pricing.


The largest of our spaces - the Bridewell Hall is an elegant space with high ceilings and large original windows, lending itself just as easily to conferences, lectures and AGMs as to lavish parties, formal dinners and wedding receptions. The Farringdon Room neighbours Bridewell Hall and is often hired in conjunction, serving as a perfect breakout space, registration and catering space or dance floor for receptions. For events over 100 guests, we do recommend that you book this adjoining room for your comfort and ease. Please enquire about weekend pricing.

The full sized board room table can be rearranged according to requirements. The walls are lined with books dating back to the 16th century and the space adjoins the William Blades Library, home to many hundreds of volumes charting the history of early printing, letterforms and calligraphy. High ceilings, double aspect windows with plenty of natural daylight, and carpeted floor.


A flexible and versatile loft above the bustle of the city, the vaulted ceiling of the Blackfriars Room allows the space to be filled with natural light.

An attractive and tranquil space, the Caxton Room is ideal for smaller meetings or can be used as a breakout space for larger hires. A further possible use of the room is for catering. Especially when hired in conjunction with the Salisbury room, which it adjourns.


The Theatre Bar represents the greatest change in the Foundation since Victorian times - what was once a dark, damp, steamy laundry is now a quirky and charming bar. With tables nestled amongst the original wooden washing machine and spin dryer, this space is a hidden gem, perfect for pre and after show drinks or private parties. The bar has a late licence and can be set up according to requirements. It is accessible via short flight of stairs or a small lift for wheelchair users, with toilets on the same level.
