If you’re looking for the perfect conference venue in West London that has a bit of a twist, look no further than these carefully chosen top picks.
The Tabernacle is a visually arresting Grade II listed building found in Powis Square, Notting Hill, less than ten minutes from both Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park tube stations. Dating right back to 1887 when it first opened its doors as a church, its curved Romanesque façade of red brick and terracotta is flanked by towers on either side, providing impact from the moment your guests arrive, at which point they will instantly know they are a million miles away from a dreary office block.
Another historic offering that is quite simply stunning to behold, Speech Room was built in 1871 to replicate the curvature of the iconic Globe Theatre, with tiered seating for maximum efficiency in terms of both the view and acoustics, not to mention the ornate period features that await every glance and make this a truly special place. Up to 500 guests can attend an event here, with the nearest transport links including Harrow & Wealdstone and Harrow on the Hill.
For something totally unique that your guests are sure to remember for a lifetime, Fluxland is a moored vessel in a marina upon the Thames, built out of a former freight boat to create a one-of-a-kind event space. Ideal for more intimate meetings, the capacity allows for up to 60 delegates to attend, but what is perhaps most interesting of all is the boat’s geometric, mirrored design, which means it changes perspective as the shifting light hits it at different angles throughout the day.
The Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith has gained legendary status on the live performance scene, welcoming top names in the worlds of comedy, stage and music from across the globe. Now available for hire for a wide range of different events, you too can make the most of the vast space on offer here, which allows for a very generous 1500 guests, making it a great choice should you have a large number of people to accommodate at your upcoming conference.
With eight art galleries to its name, the nature of how The Exhibitionist operates invites repeat bookings, as there is always something new and exciting to see with their collections regularly updated to feature the work or up-and-coming names in the creative world. Housed within sensitively restored townhouses in South Kensington, the spaces combine the best of 19th century elegance with 21st century convenience. The nearest transport options are South Kensington station itself, and Gloucester Road.
