One Horse Guards
A stylish central London venue with stunning Thames views
If you’re looking for a central, small venue hire in London, One Horse Guards provides period spaces for hire with a contemporary twist for a variety of London corporate events, conferences, meetings and small parties. Located close to Whitehall, the Grade II listed building has stunning views of the Thames and London’s iconic landmarks including The London Eye, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, perfect as a summer party venue too.
In March 1884, property speculator Jonathan Carr obtained a 95-year lease on a piece of land overlooking the Victoria Embankment. The site was in a prime position, well within walking distance of the numerous government buildings at Whitehall and had unrivalled views across the river Thames. At the time he acquired the land, Carr was one of London’s most successful developers but his plans of Whitehall were to eclipse anything he had attempted before.
Carr envisaged creating a monumental apartment block, the likes of which London had never seen before. Built in the French Renaissance style and reaching a height of 100ft, the enormous edifice would run 600ft along the edge of the Embankment Gardens, creating an elegant new focal point for this part of the Thames vista. Inside, enormous apartments would provide graceful residences for the cream of society. The extraordinary building would be named Whitehall Court, in which One Horse Guards resides today.
