About the Venue

Landing Forty Two is located at the top of The Leadenhall Building (also affectionately known as the “Cheesegrater”) and is London's highest dedicated event space. In fact it's situated 500 feet above street-level in the heart of the City's financial district, and offers mesmerising views over the Thames and London skyline. The Leadenhall Building also has sustainability at its core too, with solar responsive venetian blinds inbuilt into the windows.

Bonus fact! The Leadenhall building's lifts are the fastest in Europe, traveling 8 metres a second, reaching the peak of the building in only 40 seconds.

Tickets are also now on sale. Space is limited, so secure your spot today!
