The Setting

Toynbee Hall is a unique Grade II listed building, nestled in the heart of London’s Whitechapel, built to resemble a manorial residence in Elizabethan style.

Although much of the original site was destroyed during World War II, both of their stunning halls remain and they have recently undergone redevelopment to add fresh and modern accents to the building’s historic charm.
