Trinity House

Trinity House is conveniently located in The City a short walk from the Tower Hill underground station with direct views of the historic Tower of London. The House overlooks Trinity Square Gardens and has, as its immediate neighbour, the new five-star Four Seasons 10 Trinity Square Hotel. In addition to the location of Tower Hill station on its front door step, the Aldgate and Monument stations are within easy walking distance and major rail links are a short taxi ride. London City Airport is approximately five miles away and a 20-minute drive.

Behind the building’s imposing neo-classical faҫade, designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794, are five graceful banqueting and conference rooms – The Library, Court Room, Pepys Room, Luncheon Room and Reading Room. The House’s particularly beautiful Reception Hall, with its sweeping, twin-curved staircase, and Quarterdeck first floor corridor houses remarkable maritime artefacts – including the bell from the Royal Yacht Britannia – that bear testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation’s maritime history.

The oval-shaped Library is the venue’s most spacious room seating up to 130 (180 standing) and characterised by a minstrels’ gallery and beautiful 16th and 17th stained glass windows. The room houses a fascinating collection of antique silverware and its elegant proportions and dramatic view of the Tower of London make it a uniquely English setting for important occasions. Accommodating up to 130 standing and 60 seated, the south-facing Court Room is suffused with natural light from three large windows and features a carpet with the arms of Trinity House.

The history of the House, built in 1794, is omnipresent throughout the building with valuable paintings and antiques showcasing the nation’s remarkable nautical heritage. Trinity House is remains today the working home of the General Lighthouse Authority (GLA) for England and Wales and is also a major maritime charity.
