Conference, Banquet and Meeting Rooms

Situated on the banks of a picturesque stretch of water, the West Reservoir Centre is a stunning 1930s structure. Originally built as a filter house, it offers an open and flexible space that retains many of the original features including hydraulic machinery which can be viewed in the main four-storey Main Tower Room. The room can take up to 150 for a seated dinner and 180 guests for a standing reception and the original water tanks right above the heads of the guests adds drama and uniqueness to any event. On both sides of the Main Tower are two wooden decking areas, an ideal spot to have a drink or a bite to eat overlooking the glittering water. The venue is definitely one of the most distinguished spaces in London. It has been loved by many couples on their wedding day due to the serene views, industrial look and flooding of natural light.
