The Lecture Hall

Home of great debates since 1884.  The Lecture Hall is our largest space hosting up to 100 people comfortably.  A beautiful space, has seen many historic ocassions and people, interestingly Lenin visited once!

Ashbee Hall

Named after CR Ashbee, a key member of the Arts and Craft Movement.  Ashbee Hall has been the venue of many great dinners.  With its beautiful floor and period features it is a fantastic place to have your board meeting or away day, host a dinner or run a training programme.


Meeting Room 1

A great modern space for up to 40 people in a lecture style layout.  What do you think of the table? Its over 100 years old and Clement Attlee would have sat at it whilst chatting with his colleagues at Toynbee Hall.

Meeting Room 2 and 3

Our most flexible space – meeting room 2 and 3 can be configured as two seperate spaces with capacities of 16 and 40 or as one large space with a capacity of 55 people.

Bright and modern it works great for a break out space for a larger event, a board room, or as a training space for a smaller course.
