The Meeting Room at The Chimney House 2024

Posted 27th August, 4507

Welcome to The Chimney House! The Professionals Meeting Room in Sheffield

We offer 2 premium Meeting Rooms at The Chimney House.

We have been hosting events and professional meetings at The Chimney House for 16 years - since we restored the building in 2008.

The Meeting Room is an iconic space, made famous by numerous television appearances, acres of press coverage and Global fame, as it sprang up on radars far and wide when American events company eVenue crowned it ‘the second most creatively designed Meeting Room in the World’. 

Known for its responsible design ethos, the 20ft reclaimed custom made boardroom table and antiquities and curiosities; the perfect accessories for a modern meeting room by award winning design studio 93ft. The Meeting Room has welcomed leading names and famous faces, both local and international.

Join us to build empires and talk business under the ancient beams, and by the companionable 93ft chimney soaring through the floor and out of the roof. 

The Meeting Room has a capacity of 50 seated guests available on a full day hire basis. 

The Living Room is a second space available for hire at The Chimney House. A bright airy space, stacked full of green living plants, a log burning stove, fireside armchairs and views out onto Kelham's idyllic waterways. It is a room for chatting business, brainstorming, hatching plans and setting plans into action. Great for a quick get-together. Enter through the original mahogany door and choose your seat!

The Living Room has a capacity of 10 seated guests is available for full day or half day hire. 

Tracked back to 1886, The Chimney House is perched on the historic waterways of Kelham Island. Guests can roam the waterways and the cobbled streets of the island in break times and for a leg stretch! Ask us about previous residents, you might get a surprise! 

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests to The Chimney House!

“We found The Chimney House to be an excellent event venue – very different to your ‘run of the mill’ meeting rooms. The lunch was superb in both presentation and quality – everyone commented on how good the food was and the layout worked really well. The staff were great, always attentive and accommodating. A great venue with a twist and one we would use again.”

Pamela Allan, Nissan
