Babble Language Exchange, Waterloo

It's World Cup Final Babble!

The game starts at 8pm and The Wellington will be showing it, of course. Unfortunately none of the regular hosts can attend this week but Wesley is our honorary host for the evening. He's the friendly Polish fellow with glasses! Enjoy!


We are based at The Wellington pub in Waterloo which is just opposite Waterloo station.


We meet every Sunday evening from 18.30 and the event usually comes to a close around 22.30 depending on numbers.

Why the change of location?

The Spectator bar closed down so we are heading back to The Wellington for the summer at least! An area will be reserved for Babble just like previous events held there in 2013.

Drinks and Food?

The Wellington offers a wide range of drinks and food.

How does it work?

Babble is a language market where everyone has something to contribute. Whatever language you want to practise (unless it's incredibly obscure) will be spoken by a native on a typical Sunday evening. As hosts Marc, Mark and Saskia look to pair people up with a common language interest and the rest is down to you.

Our ambition is for Babble to become the go-to place on a Sunday night. We know we create a good atmosphere and that people find us helpful, but we want more than that! We want to create a party such that people look forward to Sunday nights, and stay till closing with the aim of extracting the maximum possible joy from their weekend!

If we’re going to achieve this, we’ll need your help. We need you to engage with us, we need you to arrive with an open mind and a happy smile (which you already do), we need you to invite your friends along and talk about us when you can, we need you to be active on here and our other social media platforms (@BabbleLondon on Twitter, with ratings, comments, conversations, suggestions! And in return for all of the above, you get a London home. You get a place where you feel welcome every week, where you meet other people who want the same things as you, where you make friends in a sometimes intimidating city. We’re not exclusive, we don’t need you to be a certain age, nationality or gender, we welcome all-comers and our only requirement is that you do the same.

We look forward to meeting you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
