Whitechapel Gallery

This beautiful Art Gallery in London since 1901 has brought inspiration and creativity to the East End of London for many years and can also motivate, inspire and delight your guests by holding an event within this unique building. Now converted into several galleries, theatres and studios this Registered Gallery Charity is the most amazing place to hold a dinner, drinks reception, conference, meeting or workshop.

Its unbeatable location, right beside Aldgate East Tube Station, huge array of spaces, official caterers on-site and a creative events team makes Whitechapel Gallery an excellent choice for your next event. For grand events choose the 250 capacity Foyer, with original period features and a light and spacious interior ideal for drinks receptions and evening events.

The Gallery has its own theatre, the Zilkha Auditorium which seats 110 and is fully equipped with presentation technology for seminars and screenings. The other studios and galleries feature sculpture and art to promote discussions and inspiration and make excellent entertaining environments, all of which are equipped with all-important events necessities such as Wi-Fi, air conditioning and AV technology.

Throughout the building original Victorian architecture shines through the modern and contemporary interiors and makes the gallery a superb backdrop for filming and photoshoots. High ceilings, ornate staircases, exposed brickwork and original stone flooring combined with the light, bright and airy ambience makes a perfect combination of old meets new.
