You might not know but..
The buildings neoclassical facade was designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794
Event space Trinity House, home to the General Lighthouse Authority, enjoys delightful views across Trinity House Gardens to the historic Tower of London and the River Thames and is one of London’s most distinguished private event venues. Located on the gentle slope of Tower Hill London event space Trinity House is easily accessed by car or the underground, the elegance and airy spaciousness of the House possesses the ambience of a grand private residence and is an impressive setting for social and corporate occasions and memorable civil weddings and is available on an exclusive use basis.
Behind the building’s imposing neo-classical façade, designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794, are five graceful banqueting and conference rooms – The Library, The Court Room, The Pepys Room, Luncheon Room and Reading Room catering for board meetings, conferences, informal dinners, formal banqueting and weddings ranging in seated capacity from 10 to 130 places. The House’s particularly beautiful Reception Hall, with its sweeping, twin-curved staircase, houses remarkable maritime artefacts that bear testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation’s maritime history.
The history of the House is omnipresent and throughout the building, valuable paintings and antiques bear out the nation’s remarkable nautical heritage. This chronicle began in 1514 when a young Henry VIII granted the charitable guild of mariners a Royal Charter to regulate the water traffic on the River Thames, their powers later extended by Elizabeth I to include the sea-markers around the English coastline. In its 200 year history, the building has welcomed royalty, prime ministers and Lords of the Admiralty and is today managed by Deputy Master, Captain Ian McNaught. Reflecting the on-going patronage of the Crown, the current Master of the Company is HRH The Princess Royal, filling a role held in former centuries by, amongst others, the diarist Samuel Pepys, the Duke of Wellington and William Pitt.
Bridal parties wishing to celebrate a traditionally English wedding in one of London’s most ancient boroughs will be delighted to learn of the formal collaboration between maritime entities Trinity House – the working home of the General Lighthouse Authority – and the august Anglican church of All Hallows By The Tower. Historically linked to the Port of London Authority (formerly housed at 10 Trinity Square adjacent to Trinity House), All Hallows is the oldest medieval church in the City of London to survive the Great Fire in 1666. The site of Christian worship since 675 AD (nearly 300 years before the Tower of London nearby), the church is located within five minutes walking distance of Trinity House, rendering it ideal for post-service receptions and wedding breakfasts for up to 130 guests.
In partnership, Trinity House and All Hallows are extending a special all-inclusive rental hire rate of £5,900 (Saturdays) and £6,900 (Sundays) inclusive of 20% VAT and incorporating the formal wedding service (and use of organ and church bells) and exclusive venue hire (only) of Trinity House including tables and chairs. Bridal couples are welcome to meet with the church vicar, The Rev Bertrand Olivier, to discuss legal requirements and ceremonial arrangements at least six months prior to the proposed wedding date.
Trinity House is the General Lighthouse Authority (GLA) for England and Wales, with responsibility for nearly 600 Aids to Navigation, from traditional aids such as lighthouses, buoys and beacons to the latest satellite navigation technology. In addition it inspects over 10,000 local Aids to Navigation provided by port and harbour authorities, and those positioned on offshore structures. Please visit www.trinityhouse.co.uk/events
