A surprising and unspoiled location, Southwark Cathedral welcomes business meetings and private events of all shapes and sizes.  A versatile venue the Cathedral offers boardrooms and seminar spaces for intimate meetings and training sessions right through to the stunning nave, which can accommodate up to 800 guests.  The tranquil Churchyard on the Market side of the Cathedral accommodates 400 for receptions and the Millennium Courtyard on the River side of the Cathedral that is ideal for marquee hire offers space for 500.
