Theatre-style chairs under purple light in Aldersgate Room

The Aldersgate Room

Named after the street where Methodist founder John Wesley had his pivotal ‘Aldersgate experience’, the Aldersgate Room is a striking event space imbued with the rich heritage of Central Hall Westminster.

It holds up to 250 people in reception or theatre style, and its distinctive décor is made up of both modern and period features. These include decorative alcoves, vaulted ceilings, bespoke chandeliers, a glass-panelled conservatory, and gallery-style track lighting throughout.

The Aldersgate Room is located on the Lower Ground Floor, providing easy access for delegates and guests at awards, seminars, or meetings. It is also next door to our public café, giving you excellent footfall for gallery exhibitions.
