The riverside venue complex has attracted a record 350 event bookings this year and will open its new viewing gallery, the Sky Bar at Altitude 360, on New Year’s Eve.  

The venue doubled its capacity by launching the Altitude 360 Black space on 1 December, and opened The View Studios in August.   

New developments

Altitude London marketing director Peter Kerwood said: "We are looking at an exciting new visitor attraction in August, developing innovate ways to use our five event spaces, and will be working with one of London’s largest event management companies on several major projects.  We are also looking to open a contemporary art gallery in the New Year in our River Room."

Events helping to boost the venue’s business include the use of Milbank Media Centre in spring 2010 as David Cameron and the Conservative Party’s election campaign headquarters.  

Altitude London managing director John Lowther said: "The new initiatives that we have introduced have really struck a chord and we looking forward to more exciting developments over the coming months."
