Situated on the Southbank of the Thames and opposite the Houses of Parliament, County Hall has an enviable location next to The London Eye with breathtaking views over The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben and easily accessible from both Waterloo and Westminster stations. Originally opened in 1922 by King George V, the iconic County Hall building has largely served as the headquarters of local government for London before being recently restored to one of London’s leading conference centres.
Evening Special Event
Banqueting House is one of London’s Royal Palaces and the only remaining component of the Palace of Whitehall. Specially created for entertaining in 1622, the Banqueting House still dazzles today. Designed by Inigo Jones for James I in the Palladian style, it is one of England's earliest Classical buildings. Summit delegates will walk in the footsteps of royalty as we enjoy a networking event under the magnificent ceiling painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens. Underneath the Main Hall is the atmospheric vaulted Undercroft where our evening event continues.
