The following is a break-down of some of Central London’s very best conference spaces, for all your business needs.
The elegant and stylish finish throughout 10-11 Carlton House Terrace will bring a certain glamour and sophistication to proceedings. Its fantastic location puts it right at the heart of the city’s business scene, with Piccadilly Circus and Charing Cross tube stations both reachable within just 5 minutes on foot. The 10 rooms themselves (with capacities of up to 135) are functional and fully equipped to hold any meeting, conference or corporate event, all coming complete with ample natural light and great views of The Mall and St. James’ Park.
Found just opposite Temple tube station, Arundel House boasts wonderful views of the River Thames and is thus another brilliantly located venue. The various rooms on offer are bright, modern and spacious, lending themselves easily to any professional gathering. In fact, the interior underwent a significant refurbishment in January of 2013, bringing the facilities bang up to date and ensuring that all technology provided is cutting-edge and fully functional to meet all your conferencing needs. There are a plethora of other nearby transport links at your disposal as well, including Waterloo station.
Situated in the very heart of London’s prestigious Mayfair, The Royal Institution of Great Britain is a Grade I listed building, sure to bring a sense of importance and grandeur to any occasion. In-house catering and audio-visual equipment are available on-site, as is the dedicated events team who will work alongside you to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible. There are 3 floors and a 600 person maximum capacity in all, making this a wonderful choice for larger scale meetings. As for transport options, Green Park tube station is just a stone’s throw away.
Tucked away in the eaves of Faber and Faber – the renowned publishing house that has carried the works of Ted Hughes, T.S. Eliot and Samuel Beckett, to name a few – Faber Creative Spaces is comprised of two bright and modern event spaces in the heart of Bloomsbury. The simple, contemporary finish inside is ideally suited to business meetings, while the smaller capacity of 80 keeps things feeling decidedly more intimate and ensures that everyone can get involved. Despite its modernity and functionality, the building itself is in fact Grade II listed, giving you a little slice of history.
Also Grade II listed is Bloomsbury House, one of London’s best hidden gems. Originally built in 1887 and officially listed in 1976, it was sensitively and lovingly restored in 2007, making the interior practical for the modern business scene without sacrificing any of the beauty and charm from its rich past. The various spaces add up to a total capacity of around 350, and the impressive, eye-catching features found throughout are sure to please your guests. Meanwhile, the close proximity to Holborn tube station (just a 2 minute walk away) is also sure to come in handy.
