Events in London? There’s Just One Gigantic Catch

Arranging events in London? The world’s your oyster! There’s a treasure trove of the most wow worthy event spaces to choose from. But that’s the problem, people!


The UK capital is renowned worldwide for its historical and cultural significance. As you’d expect, this includes a whole host of amazing venues for any occasion. Unsurprisingly, organisers of events in London often feel overwhelmed by sheer choice.


But fear not! I’m here to guide you through a few of my current personal favourites. There’s way too many to cram into just one article. So, I’ve cherry-picked a few hotels and venues I’ve recently visited in person. Each one is unique and full of character, ensuring there's something for every preference, purse and event type.


The Landmark London – Elegant and Opulent


Conference room at the Landmark London, set up for a formal seated dining event.

Where? Near Marylebone Station

Event Capacity – Reception 650, Seated Dining 500, Conferencing 300

Bedrooms – 334

 

  • This majestic hotel’s easy accessibility makes it a dream venue for events in London, without sacrificing an ounce of grandeur. You’ll want to pay close attention if imposing spaces and sumptuous ballrooms are your thing. In addition, they’re complemented by a fleet of some of the largest hotel bedrooms I’ve ever seen, (which means particularly big by London standards!). Better still, half the rooms face in towards the High Palms and new Champagne Bar. Ideal for people watching and taking in the size and scale of this queen (or king) of a property.

Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel - Victorian Grandeur Meets Modern Chic

 


Empty events space at the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel London.

Where? Russell Square

Bedrooms – 300


·       Speaking of royalty, take a look at this jewel in Bloomsbury’s crown, blending historic architecture with contemporary style. It commands attention from the outside, while the interior is all mod cons and comforts. This gorgeous hotel provides a backdrop of heritage splendour filled with natural light, making it an impressive setting for both intimate and large-scale events in London.


Hotel ME London – An Architectural Magnum Opus


Meeting room at the Hotel ME London, set up for a boardroom style meeting.

Where? The Strand

·       ME London is celebrating a decade of art, music, and design. And there’s plenty to party about. It offers an experiential stay, with avant-garde design, a choice of super-stylish meeting and event spaces, and panoramic views of the Thames and London's skyline from the 10th floor Radio Rooftop. This is the venue for you if modern design, sophistication, and sheer class are top of your wish list. I seldom use the words jaw-dropping, but this hotel truly is.


BMA House – Timeless Sophistication


Event space at BMA House London, set up for a theatre style presentation.

Where? Tavistock Square

Event Capacity – Reception 320, Seated Dining 200, Conferencing 290


·       This majestic Grade II listed building was designed by the eminent Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1911. 100+ years later, it’s a perfect venue for corporate events in London, where state-of-the-art meets stunning architecture. Plus, there’s the spacious Courtyard and serene Garden, which can be used for summer events in the capital’s heart, a strolling distance from Euston and King’s Cross. What an inspiring setting for any gathering!


Central Hall Westminster – London Legacy Exemplified


Events space at Central Hall Westminster, set up for a discussion panel.

Where? Storey’s Gate (think Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament)

Event Capacity – Reception 900, Seated Dining 400, Conferencing 875


·       The word iconic is used too generously these days, But the Central Hall Westminster is a bona fide London icon. It’s known for its scale and versatility, with 23 varied rooms which have hosted many cultural and historical events in London between them. When you’re looking for a dazzling events venue combining heritage with ultra- modern functionality, you’ve come to the right place.


London Transport Museum – Your Ticket to Immersive Events


Museum Gallery at the London Transport Museum, set up for a gala dinner with the London red double-decker buses.

Where? Wellington Street, Covent Garden

Event Capacity – Reception 400, Seated Dining 150, Conferencing 200


·       Imagine hosting your event surrounded by London’s famous red double-deckers or early tube carriages, under a striking glass ceiling that once housed the Victorian flower market. Past meets present in the Museum Galleries, offering dynamic backdrops to everything from 'first-class' to 'express' events in London. This fabulous venue promises a trouble-free ride through London’s transport evolution for smaller meetings to larger scale soirées.

 

At the end of the day, The Smoke (as us non-Londoners call it) offers hotels and venues beyond every event planner's wildest dreams, reflecting the vibrant spirit of the metropolis. These places are filled with memories waiting to be made.


Whether you’re planning a small meeting or a massive gala dinner, save yourself some serious headaches and drop me a line.  At The Venue Hunters, it’s my job to keep on top of the London venue circuit, (which is no mean feat!). So, you don’t have to. Even better, it’s completely free, for a dedicated hotel and venue finding service that’s second-to-none.


What you waiting for? Let’s get our heads together and see what we can come up with for your next events in London.
