Westminster Venue Collection is delighted to welcome One Birdcage Walk to its consortium, joining the 35-strong collection of iconic venues, bringing its member total to 36.

Regarded as one of the finest examples of traditional architecture in Westminster, the grand Victorian home of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers overlooks St James’ Park. One Birdcage Walk provides contemporary facilities in a unique building in a prestigious central London location.

The 16 event spaces throughout the venue celebrate the lives of well-known and recognised mechanical engineers, and their achievements. With creative flexibility, the venue can host events for up to 210 guests, from lectures and conferences to drinks receptions and fine-dining experiences.

The jewel in the crown at One Birdcage Walk is the Library. Built in the Elizabethan Style, clad in marble and warm oak with stunning views over the park, the Library is open to the public during the week and can hold evening receptions and dinners.

Christine Milburn-Philpott, commercial venue manager at One Birdcage Walk, said: “We are so thrilled to be joining the Westminster Venue Collection and to be included among this collective of prestigious and beautiful venues. We have been focused on building our venue profile within the events industry and joining WVC goes a long way to assist us in that goal. We are very much looking forward to getting involved with the collection and collaborating with our neighboring venues on exciting showcases and other projects.”

The Chair of Westminster Venue Collection, Rachel Azzopardi, said: “We are extremely excited to welcome such an iconic venue to our collection. One Birdcage Walk will make a strong addition to our collection, bringing together modern and traditional exhibition spaces, museums, auditoria, conference rooms and banqueting halls in the City of Westminster.”
