If you are planning a corporate party in or around the Charing Cross area and just haven’t managed to find the right venue yet then fear not, we’ve got you covered with a selection of fantastic options below.
Banqueting House is an ideal choice if what you really want is to both impress and thoroughly spoil your guests. A truly beautiful setting for many an occasion throughout history, Banqueting House has been welcoming people through its doors since 1622, meaning it is rich in London’s cultural heritage. By dining here, you’d be joining an illustrious list of Kings, Queens and courtiers, and it’s easy to see why the venue’s popularity has endured. With many of its stunning period features still intact, it is a sumptuous and truly special place to behold.
Stunning both inside and out, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace is another venue that is guaranteed to make a lasting impression on all your guests. There are no less than 10 different event spaces to choose from, each one finished to the highest standard and showing off the traditional elegance of the building itself. With lots of natural daylight and wonderful views out onto The Mall and St James’s Park, this Westminster based venue sits just 4 and 5 minutes respectively from Piccadilly Circus and Charing Cross tube stations, keeping you well connected to the wider city.
The ICA has been described as the ‘cultural heartbeat of London’ by Damien Hirst, giving you an idea of how significant a place this is within the world of creativity and culture, making it an ideal setting for a party to remember. The wide range of different spaces on offer include everything from elegant 18th century reception rooms to an ultra-modern cinema room. Resident caterers will take care of refreshments for your guests, preparing a delicious bespoke, seasonal menu. Meanwhile, the in-house events team will take care of the legwork when it comes to the planning process, ensuring that everything runs as smoothly as possible.
116 Pall Mall is another venue with fantastic links to the city’s cultural and historical past. Grade I listed, the building has been lovingly and tastefully restored, allowing it to function as a practical events space for the modern day without losing any of the charm and splendour of its rich Georgian roots. The 7 specially designed function rooms each have their own distinct appeal, with eye-catching details awaiting every glance. These impressive spaces can be hired individually or you can opt for exclusive hire of the entire venue for large scale gatherings instead.
St Martin in the Fields offers a unique and exciting blend of old meets new, with historic architectural features – such as archways and exposed brickwork – combined and accented with the conveniences and style of the modern day. Your options are certainly open when it comes to hire here, with meeting rooms for up to 20 people, St Martin’s Hall for up to 120, and atmospheric Gallery and Crypt spaces all available for you to choose from, depending on the mood and scale you wanted to establish for your party. Found on Trafalgar Square, the venue is just a stone’s throw from Charing Cross and Embankment stations.
