Situated at the heart of Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House is an historic London landmark and the home of The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet.

The Paul Hamlyn Hall, the former Covent Garden flower market is one on London's most iconic rooms. With its tall arched glass roof it is a dramatic and stylish venue for conferences, lunches and launches for up to 1000.

The Linbury Studio Theatre is a versatile and modern space, ideal for conferences and product launches whilst the opulent splendour of the Crush Room, with its high ceilings, gilt finishes and stunning crystal chandeliers, make it an elegant venue for lunch or daytime event.

And if you are looking for something quirky, the Royal Opera House can offer a truly original event experience by transforming its ballet studios into reception and dinner venues. With access to a private terrace, your guests can enjoy spectacular views over Covent Garden and the London rooftops.
