The Crypt at Bleeding Heart


Information For The Crypt at Bleeding Heart

The sense of history lies heavy in the Crypt of St Etheldreda’s. Its foundations date back to the 6th Century; its rough stone walls, eight foot thick in parts, and its heavy blackened beams to the 12th Century when Ely Palace was constructed above The Crypt by the Bishops of Ely as their London Bishopric.

The magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place, adjoining Bleeding Heart Yard, is the perfect central London venue for a special Private Event for 50 to 120 guests – be it a Wedding Reception or a City Banquet.

With its History of Celebration and Celebration of History, the 600 year–old Crypt at St Etheldreda’s has been hosting celebrity parties in the heart of London ever since King Henry V111 held his three-day wedding feast there in 1531. Today The Crypt offers the same superb food, wine and service as the legendary Bleeding Heart French Restaurant.

St Etheldreda’s is one of London’s hidden gems, a beautiful and historic building and the oldest Roman Catholic Church in England.
