Venue History​

One Whitehall Place is steeped in fascinating history and even still today, history is constantly being created inside of it due to the number of special events which are held here every year.

The land in which Whitehall Place stands on today was originally given to the Royal family of Scotland by the English Crown in 800ad. The palaces which originally stood on this land were destroyed during the Great Fire of London. After this, the area was still known as Scotland Yard.

Alfred Waterhouse, who was the President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, was given the task to design Whitehall Place to be home for all Liberals in London.

It was in 1985 when One Whitehall Place was created, when The Royal Horseguards developed it to create the impressive venue which it is today.

Venue Overview

Its location is also equally as attractive as the venue itself, being situated in Embankment; One Whitehall Place has a central location, therefore making it easily accessible by all manner of transport.
