Today you can find HQS Wellington sitting proudly on the Thames at Victoria Embankment.
But did you know that she began her working life in the Merchant Navy, patrolling British Protectorates in the South Pacific in the 1930s? She was recalled for active duty in 1939 and spent the next four years escorting convoys in the Western Approaches to the English Channel. With the war over she was left to languish on a mud flat in Milford Haven for a year before being rescued by the Honourable Company of Master Mariners and subsequently converted into a floating Livery Hall.
HQS Wellington makes a superb events venue, suitable for a wide range of events. There are four separate spaces available for hire.
Choose a meeting room for as few as 14 or if you are planning a large event, the Court Room holds 150 seated. Hire one room or why not hire the whole ship exclusively? You really can’t go wrong!
Unique, historic, fantastic views – what more could any event planner want? If you would like to find out more about hiring this amazing ship, please get in touch with us and we will be delighted to help.
