Liverpool Street, EC2M
The Space

Our Grade II* listed building is a haven in the city, where culture, heritage and learning meet.  Renowned as a central hub for public events for 125 years, Bishopsgate Institute is also a remarkably atmospheric location for private and corporate events.

From the moment you step across the threshold, the originality of the building is clear. Our venue combines elements from the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements, along with typically Victorian motifs. Every one of our rooms is full of individual character and steeped in history.

Our spaces are suited to any event you might have in mind, and our flexible rooms have capacity for between 4 to 500 people.

Set on the edge of the City of London, you can find us just two minutes’ walk from Liverpool Street Station.
