About Us

VENUE HISTORY

The 10 Union Street site comprises of two original buildings which have been transformed to create one stunning, combined modern space, located in the heart of the vibrant London Bridge area.

The original 19th century hop warehouse, which retains some of its charming historical features, and an existing 1980s office block, have been refurbished and connected by a newly constructed, a glass covered atrium, allowing natural light to flood into this space. Both buildings are connected by an architecturally designed helical staircase, allowing people to connect and move throughout the atrium and building.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) purchased the site in 2017 and has spent the last year fulfilling its vision, working with architects to convert the site into purpose built, state-of the-art, meeting and event spaces incorporating the RCOG’s offices.

Making the best use of available technology, including video conferencing and first class audio visual facilities, the RCOG will become a modern and global hub, fulfilling its mission to improve health of women and girls across the world.

What’s your favourite thing about Union Street?
It’s the north building which is an old 19th century hop warehouse. It’s tucked away from public eye so not many people are aware it exists. Hops were brought in to the London Docklands area from other European countries, sold in the Hop Exchange building in London Bridge and then distributed to hop warehouses like the one at Union Street, which helped boost the beer industry in the 19th century.
