Sometimes choosing the venue for a business related event in Central London can be daunting, simply because there are so many of them. To save you the leg work, the following list will talk you through 6 of the very best options.
If you want something that is steeped in a sense of cultural history and importance then look no further than BAFTA 195 Piccadilly. As the headquarters of the British Academy of British Film and Television Arts, this unique venue is both beautiful and practical, coming complete with all the modern features and facilities that you would expect from a corporate event space. With gatherings here able to accommodate up to 260 guests and help at hand to ensure things run as smoothly as possible, you can rest assured that a conference held here will have a professional air.
Conveniently located just 10 minutes each from Victoria train station and both Pimlico and St James Park tube stations, guests will be able to easily travel from far and wide to attend a conference at Royal Horticultural Halls. An elegant venue retaining all the charm of its Edwardian beginnings, the light and airy atmosphere found here coupled with the distinctive domed ceiling create a real sense of occasion, while the spacious interior can comfortably hold anywhere up to 700 people. Its relative simplicity also means that the space can be adapted to suit whatever specific needs you may have.
Found in Westminster, One Great George Street is a hugely versatile venue with a plethora of different spaces to choose from, making this a wonderful choice no matter the scale of your event. The 21 function rooms include the impressive 400 capacity Great Hall, the two-tiered lecture halls complete with all the latest necessary technology and the intimate meeting rooms for gatherings of as few as just 18 people. Being right at the heart of one of London’s most popular and bustling areas, there should be no trouble when it comes to organising transport.
Bloomsbury House is something of an undiscovered gem that is sure to do nothing but grow in popularity as a conference space as more and more people uncover its charm. Originally built way back in 1887, it retains its sense of history, having been very sympathetically and sensitively restored in 2007, making it a fully-functioning business space without sacrificing charisma. The building is in fact Grade II listed, giving you an indication of its quality and importance, but this does not detract from its usefulness, with a good capacity of 350 and its close proximity to Holborn tube station.
