The Porchester Hall is a grand building in the heart of Paddington, providing striking, plush surroundings for a whole host of events from wedding receptions to fashion shows to charity balls. Opening its doors in 1929, the Hall provided this west London community with a rather lovely place to hold dances and meetings and, with oak-panelled walls, crystal chandeliers and velvet drapes, it's still a traditionally elegant venue to have a bit of a do. Add to this the dance floor, the stage at one end of the hall (complete with art deco skylight) and the backstage Duchess of York room, not forgetting the fully licensed bar and kitchen facilities, and you've got everything you could possibly need and want to impress your guests
The hall is available to hire for a multitude of purposes including wedding receptions from the small and intimate to the larger affair.
The Hall walls are handsomely panelled in English oak and walnut, with luxurious rich crimson velvet drapes. Fascinating figurines and motifs support the main beams and ten magnificent crystal chandeliers hang from the fine ceiling. The Hall is amply suited for all sizes of functions with the perfect dance floor made of sprung oak parquet. At one end of the hall the oak panelled stage provides a perfect setting for any band and features a fantastic art deco skylight, ornamental brass panelling and the Borough of Paddington coat of arms.
