The Space

The HAC is an exceptional and thoroughly unexpected peaceful venue; a historic 18th century mansion set in a six-acre garden yet located just minutes from Moorgate and Old Street stations in the heart of the City of London.

The Honourable Artillery Company estate compromises of three main areas: Armoury House, a Grade II-listed Georgian manor house, the hidden five-acre historical lawn of the Artillery Garden; the Prince Consort Rooms, a large converted contemporary drill hall with its own entrance and terrace.

Armoury House

Inside Armoury House, several elegant rooms are available for hire, including the atmospheric oak-panelled Long Room, which is one of London's most stunning venues for a private dinner, reception or party. 

When you approach Armoury House, an instant impact is made from the impressive building and its original features including large cannons, and stone entrance steps. Inside, stained glass windows overlook the central staircase and, on the ground floor, you’ll find the Ante Room and Queens Room (each with capacity for up to 60 guests). Both spaces benefit from large, front-facing windows and plenty of natural daylight.

Prince Consort Rooms

The Prince Consort Rooms offer a contemporary space inside a historic and prestigious venue with a dedicated entrance designed for you and your guest's privacy. The neutral decor means this room can be transformed into any themed or styled event you envision.

Artillery Garden

The Artillery Garden is ideal for sporting events, rugby, football and cricket are played on the lawn every year. The HAC’s Artillery Garden is also available to host private and corporate events such as drink receptions, summer parties and training or team building days.

The HAC’s Events Team – alongside its renowned catering partners, Searcys – work to organise and cater for events of all shapes, themes, and sizes. With years of experience, their skill and uncompromising dedication to excellence ensures occasions run seamlessly, from start to finish.
