etc.venues – County Hall

etc.venues is a leading provider of non-residential venues, offering fit for purpose, contemporary space with exemplary AV technology and quality catering with on site chefs.

In June 2016 we announced our most ambitious project to date – etc.venues County Hall, incorporating 43,000 sq ft of space and a capacity for up to 900 in one of London’s most iconic buildings next to The London Eye, with breathtaking views over The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. etc.venues set about creating a space that was visionary and modern yet paid homage to the unique history of the building. Opening in January 2017, County Hall surpassed expectations giving us the confidence to start work immediately on a second floor of 24,000 space which opened September 2017.

Today the venue offers a range of event spaces, including a number of large suites for up to 400 and a range of smaller meeting rooms, exclusive use opportunities and private dining options. The new opening received extensive press coverage but more importantly the client feedback has been exceptional, with 93% of clients stating they would recommend the venue and 65% of events re-booking.
