Well where do I start? What an amazing day is was to spend in London. It was 32c at its hottest but the venues I saw where taking it all in their stride!
First off was The Royal Society. This venue is home to the death mask of Sir Isaac Newton and steeped in history, I was in my element. The Marble Hall is definitely the place to be if you’re looking to impress. With its own Juliet Balcony, it’s hard not to fall in love with the space.
Next on my list was Kings College, Strand Campus. Walking into the courtyard, the fountains were a welcome site and I must admit I was a little jealous of the children in swim suits enjoying them! Kings College has lots of quirky spaces including a beautiful terrace with stunning views of the Thames. Just imagine a drinks reception in the evening sun – heaven!
It was time to move on to No. 11 Cavendish Square, upon entering it was great to see ten free secure charging points for electronic devices with a variety of connectors, helpful for every event organiser. The spaces here can so easily suit all your needs but my favourite was definitely the Orangery and Courtyard Garden, beautiful light spaces with a great atmosphere.
I made my way to University of Westminster, it’s great location was easy to find and the traditional spaces would work really well for small to medium events.
30 Euston Square was my penultimate stop and it didn’t disappoint. The penthouse State Rooms and Roof Terrace were amazing, if you take the rooms you get the floor exclusively so great for extra privacy. I could have happily sat up there for the rest of my day.
My final stop was the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre, with its own dedicated level and a manned reception desk you know you would be in safe hands here. The Henry Wellcome Auditorium is fully equipped and is a great choice if you've got a meeting for approx 150 delegates.
After all that excitement, it was time to make my way home and update the rest of the team on my adventures! Here’s to many more!
