Trinity House, home to the General Lighthouse Authority, is situated on Tower Hill opposite the Tower of London and is one of London’s most distinguished private venues. Easily accessed by car or the underground, the House has the ambience of a grand private residence and can be hired on an exclusive basis for important social and corporate occasions. Behind the building’s Georgian façade are five elegant meeting rooms ranging in capacity from 10 to 130 (seated) places and 180 standing. The House also showcases many remarkable maritime artefacts that bear testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation’s maritime legacy.
The history of the House is omnipresent and throughout the building, valuable paintings and antiques bear out the nation’s remarkable nautical heritage. This chronicle began in 1514 when a young Henry VIII granted the charitable guild of mariners a Royal Charter to regulate the water traffic on the River Thames, their powers later extended by Elizabeth 1 to include the sea-markers around the English coastline. In its 200 year history, the building has welcomed royalty, prime ministers and Lords of the Admiralty and is today managed by Deputy Master, Captain Ian McNaught. Reflecting the on-going patronage of the Crown, the current Master of the Company is HRH The Princess Royal, filling a role held in former centuries by, amongst others, the diarist Samuel Pepys, the Duke of Wellington and William Pitt.
