Venue Hire

Our space is available for hire and suitable for all manner of events or private celebrations. When the exhibitions are on the walls you can enjoy the space surrounded by beautiful artworks.

The Babylon Gallery is housed in a former malt house and brewery with an enviable view overlooking the River Great Ouse. We are right in the heart of Ely’s riverside just 7 minutes’ walk from the Station with direct links to London, Norwich and Peterborough. We make a perfect venue for both those in East Cambridgeshire and further afield. Our venue is fully licensed with a pop-up bar for events.

There is plentiful free all day parking nearby and throughout the whole of the City.
