The House of St Barnabas

The House of St Barnabas is a magnificent Grade 1 listed Georgian building offering three remarkable settings, which can be hired separately or in combination. Chandeliers, silk-lined walls and stunning rococo plasterwork are all featured variously in its suite of historic rooms overlooking Soho Square.

There are only two gardens in Soho and St Barnabas owns one of them. This charming private courtyard garden, enclosed by ivy-covered walls and a lovely adjoining chapel, is based on a French Romanesque design. There is a mulberry tree in the garden under which Charles Dickens sat in 1859 and gained inspiration for his book A tale of Two Cities.

The House of St Barnabas is the perfect location for a dinner party or a reception. Situated in Soho Square it is convenient for your guests and in using this 18th-century venue you are helping to fund its registered charity which helps the homeless and disadvantaged in the area.
