Tobacco Dock opened in 2012 and over the past decade has firmly cemented its place as one of the most in-demand venues in the UK. Combining a historically and architecturally significant building with an exceptional team, industry-leading service partners, best-in-class data infrastructure, Tobacco Dock is a thoroughly modern venue, perfectly positioned to help clients create extraordinary events and brand experiences for up to 7,000 guests.

The Grade 1 listed building covers 16,000qm and comprises 57 different spaces which can be used in a variety of combinations to create bespoke event layouts for events of all sizes. Featuring indoor and outdoor spaces (benefitting from plenty of covered areas to counteract the unpredictability of the British weather) with plenty of original details such as exposed brickwork, timber beams and ironwork, the interiors are characterful but stripped back, allowing for plenty of creative branding while still lending a strong sense of place.

An impressive list of service partners used to working in the building and delivering excellence as standard as well as in-house partners for catering and AV streamline the organisation process for clients, while accomplished Operations and Sales teams revel in creating outstanding events.
