The Hop Exchange, opened in 1868 and, designed by R.H Moore, stands imposingly on Southwark Street in Borough.
Bankside, and more specifically the area around Borough, was the centre of London's brewing industry from the 17th century onwards. The building has been meticulously and faithfully restored by Peer Group Plc, and is a unique survival in London, of a building type that was once so important in the commercial life of the metropolis in the 19th century.
Standing adjacent to the renowned Borough Market, the Hop Exchange is a striking and versatile venue for corporate and private events. A stones throw from London Bridge mainline and underground stations, the central feature of the building is the elegant Atrium which provides a magnificent setting that can accommodate:
- Receptions for up to 400 guests
- Dinners for up to 250 guests
- Product launches
- Film location shoots
- Fashion shows
Working with some of the best event suppliers for event management, themed parties, lighting and entertainment, the Hop Exchange is the perfect backdrop for that special occasion.
