Puddle Dock



United Kingdom



Located on the north bank, overlooking the Thames proudly stands The Mermaid. Dating back to 1959, formerly a theatre, originally the brain child of Lord Bernard Miles the building is steeped in history. At the heart of The Mermaid and key to many events remains the Auditorium. One glimpse and it takes your breath away, The Mermaid is one of London’s best kept secrets, and our pride and joy.

2012 saw our biggest and most exciting renovations to date, giving The Mermaid even more flexibility. Designed with our clients in mind, Newgate Suite was created. A new exhibition and event floor was built. This light, bright and airy space has a new internal staircase which allows this area to work in conjunction with the Auditorium or as a standalone floor. With state of the art audio visual, lighting and moveable walls, this space has become very desirable to clients.


Our new impressive Foyer is bright and contemporary, the floor to ceiling glass front provides clients a space to brand and make their own. The recently installed Living Wall is an added bonus for our clients! Several of London’s iconic landmarks on the banks of the Thames are framed by the impressive windows in The Upper and Lower River Rooms. These rooms are capable of holding from 50 to 500 for dinners, receptions and parties.
