The Cape Building is a large spacious modernised pre-1970’s Railway Electricity Station with high ceilings and large windows, illuminated with natural light from the surrounding tranquillity of the green woodland nature reserve of Parkland Walk. The building is multi-story with two main hall spaces for hire, one on the ground level and one on the first floor both with their own entrances. The ground floor hall is a flexible child and family-friendly space that can be divided into two with a cafe-style kitchen that serves the section overlooking the woodland. The first-floor hall has large windows on two sides of the room with views of the tops of the trees across the nature reserve. Adjoining the first-floor main hall is a dance studio with large mirrors, ballet bar and each floor has its own kitchen and toilets. We also have a rooftop terrace from which you can see many of London’s iconic landmarks. Cape is the perfect venue for training courses, children’s birthday parties and conferences, but this flexible space can be used for a whole range of activities and events. Contact us for more information or to request a booking.
