The Crypt on the Green, underneath St James Church in Clerkenwell, is on the site of the first nunnery to be built in London dating back to 1100AD. The crypt, with its magnificent vaulted ceiling, was restored in 1993 and provides an attractive space large enough to accommodate 300 people standing and available for private hire.
