Coventry University London is proud to hold its Awards Ceremony at Guildhall, in the City of London. With its beautiful architecture and spectacular history, guests will go on a journey of over 800 years. For several hundred years, the building has been used as a town hall and is currently still the ceremonial and administrative centre of the City of London and its corporation.
Guildhall was built between 1411 and 1440, and is the only non-ecclesiastical stone building in the City to have survived through to the present day. In the twenty-first century, Guildhall is still awe-inspiring. This rare and magnificent Grade I listed landmark will act as a spectacular venue, and magnificent backdrop for this celebration.
This majestic building is located on Gresham Street in the heart of the City of London and is a 5 minute walk from Bank, Mansion House and St Paul’s underground stations, and a 10 minute walk from Cannon Street, Moorgate and Liverpool Street underground and rail stations.
Our ceremony will take place in the Great Hall, which is the largest and most impressive room at Guildhall. The Great Hall is the City’s only secular medieval building. Since 1411, this magnificent space has been used to entertain royalty and Heads of State in a tradition that still lives on within the City today. Natural Light floods into the Hall from two grand Gothic windows. Statues celebrating Britain’s national heroes, such as Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill line the walls.
