If you want your conference to stand out and make a lasting impression, one of the best ways to do so is by choosing a suitably grand venue. Luckily, Central London has plenty of great options on offer that would more than fit the bill.
Banking Hall is sure to make an impression from the moment you walk into the dramatic space. Framed by imposing marble columns, this stunning Art Deco style venue brings glamour and decadence to any occasion, despite being able to adapt itself to suit almost any event type. With ample space for up to 800 guests, this is a great choice for larger conferences, and with Bank tube station just a stone’s throw away and Cannon Street train station also close by, guests should be able to travel from both inside London and further afield with ease.
The fact that 21 Arlington Street is Grade II* listed immediately lets you know you are in for a special venue, rich in both aesthetic beauty and cultural relevance. Having been built in 1740 for the last Viscount Shannon, opting for this venue would allow you the chance to hold your event in a little piece of London’s history, perfect for bringing a real sense of occasion to proceedings. Found in the heart of the West End, just a few steps from the iconic Ritz hotel, there are 3 private rooms in all, with the main boardroom overlooking Green Park – in fact, the building itself is just 2 minutes from the tube station which shares its name.
Drapers’ Hall is truly breath-taking in its sheer elegance and beauty. This historic venue simply cannot fail to impress, with stunning decorative ceilings, incredible artwork, original features and ornate touches awaiting your eye at every glance. Up to 350 guests can attend an event here if you choose to have it set-up theatre style, but this capacity increases to 700 for standing receptions, so there is plenty of space to work with. Being in the centre of the City of London, it is also very well connected, with Liverpool Street train station reached in just 7 minutes on foot.
Close by in the City of London, you will also find The London Capital Club, a flexible venue with 6 elegantly appointed rooms on offer. Capacities can range from anywhere between 4 and 140, making this ideally suited to smaller conferences that still have a grand feel. There is an all-inclusive day rate available for both members and non-members alike, allowing you to make the most of the range of menus on offer, should you so wish. Complete in a timeless, professional style, this multi-purpose venue sits close to the banks of the Thames, just 2 minutes from Cannon Street station.
