Battersea Arts Centre – A Unique Events and Wedding Venue in South West London

Following a multi-million pound refurbishment by award-winning architects, Haworth Tompkins, Battersea Arts Centre’s stunning Grand Hall is an event space unlike any other. Beautifully restored to its original glory, it can hold from 100 to 800 guests.

The stunning lattice ceiling is typical of the Grand Hall’s rich 125 year history, with large surrounding windows allowing natural daylight to flood in. Boasting its own private entrance, guests arrive into the stunning Octagonal Hall, with the mosaic floor and stained glass-domed ceiling making for an impressive start to any event.

The Venue

As a dream wedding venue, Battersea Arts Centre is unique in South London, offering a choice of beautiful spaces filled with history and creative flair making it perfect for couples wanting to tie the knot somewhere a little different.
