Built over 100 years ago Toynbee Hall is a Grade II listed Arts and Crafts building and retains many of its original features. Situated within easy reach of the City, Liverpool Street station and Aldgate underground, Toynbee Hall offers a convenient yet unique venue for a variety of events.
The Lecture Hall at Toynbee Hall is an elegant wood- panelled room complete with latticed windows with mullioned surrounds, wooden floor and a carved wood and marble fireplace.
The Room of Ashbee Hall at the Toynbee Hall is still decorated in the arts and crafts style, retaining 'tree of life' medallions, Toynbee Hall’s logo, on the walls and shields of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges. Latticed windows with mullioned surrounds, wooden flooring and a marble and wood fireplace all help to create a unique atmosphere in this historic room.

About Toynbee Hall
Toynbee Hall produces practical innovative programmes to meet the needs of local people, improve conditions and enable communities to fulfil their potential.
Tower Hamlets continues to be one of the most deprived boroughs in the country and Toynbee Hall works with over 6,000 members of the community each year to support them to meet the challenges that they face and to encourage them to take control of their lives.
Each year, over 500 residential and non-residential volunteers bring their expertise to the services that Toynbee Hall offers. We place volunteers at the heart of our work, always ensuring that we offer excellent opportunities, so that volunteers can meet their personal goals and develop their own skills and networks.
