The jewel in the crown of our London portfolio, Porchester Hall’s classic art deco design and understated elegance make it a sought-after venue for all type of events, from parties, dinner and weddings to music shows, comedy gigs and sporting spectacles. The elegant 1920s building features add a touch of glamour to proceedings, which probably explains why the venue is favoured for fashion shows and filming.
Porchester Hall was opened in 1929 alongside the Turkish Baths and Library on Porchester Road. It provided the Borough of Paddington with a dignified Public Hall intended primarily for use by the residents in the area but its beauty and convenience appealed to a wider circle. The foundation stone was laid by the Mayor Leonard Snell, JP, and this can be found at main entrance to the hall.
After passing through Porchester Hall’s opulent entrance, you are greeted by the stunning spectacle of its lavish main hall. Regularly used for concerts, banquets, charity events, balls and galas, the hall seats 400 for dinner and holds up to 630 for standing events.
Serving as an ideal ancillary to functions in the main hall or as a charming venue in its own right, the versatile Small Hall has capacity for up to 50 people and can used for any manner of events.
Duchess of York Suite and the Blue Room
Other spaces available include the Duchess of York Suite and the Blue Room, which are ideal for more intimate gatherings or as an extension of the main and small halls.
