portland house banking hall

Our Grade II listed former Banking Hall is now available to hire for a range of events. We have great visions for the use of this versatile space and welcome all enquiries for its hire. So far we have rented the space for everything from traditional weddings and corporate dinners to TV Shows and even the Circus! Here are a just few examples of how this amazing space has been used.



Our grand setting means that we are in an amazing vicinity to produce stunning wedding day receptions. Other than the Grade II listed features such as the 1920's decor and arched glass roof, the 4000 square foot space is capable of sitting between 350 and 400 people. This is one of the largest spaces available to hire for such functions anywhere in Cardiff.


Corporate Functions

As a commercial building with Cardiff offices to rent, our infrastructure is built to accommodate the needs of businesses. Therefore our Banking Hall is an ideal venue for corporate functions including training days, business meetings and company conferences. Likewise we have a range of offices and office wings that can be rented on a long and short term basis.


TV and Film

The past 12 months has seen many Television production companies use the Banking Hall for their latest show. Above are two shots from when Ross Noble filmed his Freewheeling alternative travel-log. However we have hosted the likes of Casualty, Sherlock and even Doctor Who thanks to the grand setting and well lit open space. 


Live Music Space

Again, one of the major benefits to the venue is it's large open space which lends itself well to accommodate fans of live music. Having already hosted bands recording music videos and music events in the past, the acoustics of the Banking Hall deliver an amazing live sound. The perfect alternative venue for any live music event in Cardiff.


Something a little different

We did say that this is a versatile space, and to emphasize it even more here is our most recent alternative booking - the Circus! Utilising the high ceilings and stunning decor, these performers added an extra special element to an already special environment. The night was a great success and left the performers wowing at what is capable in this incredible Grade II listed space.
