Host your event at the British Library

Host your daytime or evening event at the national library of the United Kingdom.

Hire our purpose built meeting and conference centre that sits separately to the main Library. Or privately transform one of our stunning spaces in the main building, creating a unique backdrop for your evening event. 

Whether you’re hosting corporate, private or experiential events, from four to 255 people – we have a space for hire to suit your event requirements.

Unique venue

Our Grade I listed building is packed full of knowledge from around the world. It's home to many of the nation’s prized treasures, including works by some of the greatest minds in history – from Magna Carta and Shakespeare to Florence Nightingale and Gandhi. It’s a venue for your event like nowhere else.


We’re very easy to find, with excellent connections to central London, the rest of the UK and Europe. You can reach us via national rail, underground and Eurostar terminals at Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras.

Situated in London’s Knowledge Quarter means we are surrounded by pioneering organisations like Google, the Francis Crick Institute, and Central St Martins. Hire a space with us and you’ll be within the heart of one of the greatest concentrations of knowledge anywhere in the world.
