The historical intrigue in London areas South of the River is often overlooked because of its more central counterparts. Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park – with monuments of such grandeur above the Thames, it’s easy to forget what lies below! HeadBox is proud to have several fascinating spaces of historical significance on the platform for your booking pleasure.
The Golden Hind
Climb aboard the Golden Hinde II and into the 16th century. An exact replica of the vessel Francis Drake captained to circumnavigate the globe, moored in the shadow of the Shard, this space is certainly a hidden treasure. Bookings come with an exclusive hire of the ship, and an excellent production team at your disposal. The time has come to weigh anchor!
The Old Operating Theatre
The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret is the epicentre of London’s surgical history, being one of the oldest surviving operating theatres. Despite the admittedly morbid nature of your surroundings, (skeletons and scalpels) it’s an ideal space for small gatherings, cultural product launches, and quirky team drinks.
Not only a place of worship, Southwark Cathedral is an incredibly elegant location for a wide range of corporate events. With six meeting rooms in a range of sizes, including the serene Garry Weston Library (seating up to 36 in boardroom style) the Cathedral might just be the unexpected source of inspiration which your team needs.
