Head of Events at Trinity House, Zoe Turner, says, 'We are delighted to be collaborating with Box Clover Events as we share a commitment to providing quality items and services that focus on sustainability and efficient waste management.

Located on Tower Hill with direct views of the Tower of London, Trinity House is one of London's most elegant and romantic private venues. Available on an exclusive use basis, its spacious interiors have the ambience of a grand private residence and are an impressive setting for memorable civil weddings, receptions and celebration events for up to 180 guests standing (130 seated).
Behind the building's imposing neo-classical façade, designed by Samuel Wyatt in 1794, are five graceful banqueting rooms – The Library, The Court Room, The Pepys Room, Luncheon Room and Reading Room catering for formal banqueting and weddings ranging in capacity from 10 to 130 places (180 standing). The venue's particularly beautiful Reception Hall, with its sweeping, twin-curved staircase, houses remarkable maritime artefacts that bear testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation's maritime history and as the current home of the General Lighthouse Authority.
