Situated above the historic, Grade II listed Smithfield market in Farringdon, London, CCT Venues-Smithfield will be seamless with its surroundings, embodying London’s historic markets from the flooring to the décor.

Adorned with its traditional wrought-iron windows and Victorian features, the trappings of tradition end the minute you walk through the door. The interior has been completely re-imagined and revitalised with a bright, lively and energising new design – creating an informal and inspiring space which fosters creativity, perfect for meetings, training and conferences. Our Smithfield venue is a refreshing change from a traditional corporate training venue and is an ideal creative meeting space located in the heart of London.

The venue offers 13 flexible rooms, capable of accommodating between 6 and 220 delegates, all on one floor. This idiosyncratic venue has all the benefits of a modern meeting space, with superfast internet, digital signage and plasma screens being just some of the features that come as standard. With creative spaces being at the forefront of our mind, the venue is complemented by an open plan reception, lounge and restaurant, all themed around London's historic markets.

The Camden Lock room is the perfect creative space for workshops and meetings, with a drinks fridge, snack machines and a retro games table to keep the energy levels high.

Located less than 5 minutes’ walk from Farringdon and Barbican stations (and only 1 stop from Kings Cross), getting here couldn’t be easier!

Venue Overview

Smithfield Market’s website explains a little about the area and this world-famous building.

 

Smithfield 1

Located within the Square Mile of the City of London, Smithfield Market is housed in three listed buildings.

It is a place packed with history (and there has been a livestock market on the site for over 800 years) yet it is as modern as tomorrow with its state of the art facilities for the receiving, storing and despatching of meat and poultry.

Smithfield 2

There was also a murkier side to the area, because from the early Thirteenth Century it was used as a place of execution for criminals.

Wat Tyler, the leader of the Peasants’ Revolt, was executed here, as was Scottish hero William Wallace and of course, it was the location of Bartholomew Fair – three days of merrymaking, dancing, selling and music which over the centuries became the most debauched and drunken holiday in the calendar. Even so, it lasted almost 700 years before it was eventually closed in 1855.
