HQS Wellington, London WC2
Moored on the Thames by the Embankment, opposite Temple tube station, HQS Wellington offers a memorable backdrop for events including summer and christmas parties, weddings, dining and business events.
The ship’s outdoor quarter deck is covered with an awning and fitted with heaters, affording it the best of both the inside and out. The ship’s prime Thames location is fully apparent here, where a sweeping vista of the South bank is available, taking in everything from St. Paul’s to Big Ben, including the Shard, the OXO Tower and the London Eye! At night this impressive view becomes superlative!
The Model Room is full of marine artifacts including ships’ bells, medals, and (as the name suggests) a priceless collection of antique model ships. The room is suitable for a variety of events, but is particularly apposite for cocktail receptions ahead of dinners in the Court Room.
The Court Room is adorned with the Master Mariners’ collection of silver and gold set into cabinets in the wood panelling and also features a number of framed antique charts. The room is fully equipped with in-built AV equipment.
Constructed in 1934, HQS Wellington, a Grimsby Class Stoop is the last surviving example of a World War II escort ship in Britain and is now home to the Honourable Company of Master Mariners.
Our flexible catering options will allow you to enjoy whatever kind of menu you have in mind, including (but not limited to!) formal seated dinners, canapé receptions, fork buffets, afternoon teas or informal barbecues on the Quarter Deck!
