Liverpool Street, EC2M

The Space

Bishopsgate Institute has been awarded the "Good to Go" accreditation from Visit England, meaning our venue is Covid-secure. Contact us to learn more about our safety measures.

The beautiful Victorian Library is an atmospheric location for intimate receptions, parties, special celebrations, and private dining. 

True to Bishopsgate Institute’s historical and cultural heritage, the Library has hosted generations of enquiring minds. Today, the Library houses a collection of rare reference materials and is home to one of the UK’s most subversive archives. Stepping into the polished wooden interior feels warm and welcoming, and the Library is an ideal space for guests to mingle.

Set on the edge of the City of London, the Library is just two minutes’ walk from Liverpool Street station.
