St Bride Foundation is a stunning Grade II listed Victorian building in the heart of London. We are near the Themes and exude historical intrigue. The range of elegant, ornate and stylish spaces are perfect for weddings.
Originally built as a printing school, the London College of Printing (now LCC) was established here. The Foundation was also a resource for local residents. Also, the city’s first public swimming baths and laundry opened here.
Today the Foundation is home to a thriving artistic community which is full of culture. It houses what is probably the world’s largest library of printing, typography and graphic design. Traditional printing, engraving and bookbinding techniques are taught in our workshop. The whole area is steeped in literary history with notable residents including Charles Dickens and Dr. Samuel Johnson.
The space is unlike any other, with such a range of room types on different levels and with different characters. The building’s printing history is totally unique. The building houses thousands of one of a kind items related to the print and design world and indeed London’s history. St Bride Foundation is a real hidden gem!
All of our rooms on the ground floor are licensed for civil marriages and civil partnerships. The elegant and palatial Bridewell Hall seats up to 150 and is suitable for ceremony, wedding breakfast and after party. The ornate Salisbury room is a beautiful setting for an intimate ceremony for up to 45 people. And the light and stylish Farringdon room is a lovely space for 60 guests. So whether you are planning and intimate occasion or a full blown party, St Bride Foundation can cater for all.
Our events team here at St Bride Foundation are always helpful and thoughtful. We look after our guests and ensure that they have the most fantastic day. Enquire with us for more information or to book a tour.
