There’s no doubt that London has some of the top venues in the world, and if you want your event to take place in one of the very best, then look below for a list of some of the city’s most famous.
Saatchi is in fact the Duke of York’s HQ building. This stunning and highly contemporary venue boasts 70,000 square feet of event space in all, which is spread across 3 floors and various interlinking areas. Each of the galleries on offer benefits from beautiful wooden flooring, generous ceiling height and Barasol lights, which replicate natural daylight and are fully dimmable, allowing you to set the perfect lighting and mood for your event. The minimalistic finish throughout means the spaces are in essence a blank canvas, giving you the chance to put your own flair into the styling.
The Royal Institution of Great Britain sits within the much renowned and highly prestigious area of Mayfair. The 3-floor building itself is Grade I listed and has a timeless beauty and charm that can lend itself easily to many different occasions. The dedicated events manager and experienced team can work with you to transform the space into your ideal backdrop, with their strong supplier relationships, in-house catering and onsite audio-visual equipment all at your disposal to ensure that both the planning process and the event itself are hassle free.
The Troxy has been a mainstay of the London cultural scene since the 1930s, when it first opened its doors to the public as a grand cinema. Now, having been given official Grade II listed status, it has been converted into a multi-purpose event space without losing any of its original charm and character; kept alive by the various period features and the Art Deco styling – which is very much on trend again right now and seems likely to remain so. With a large capacity and good nearby transport links, The Troxy is a reliable venue that is famous for good reason.
The Barbican’s fame no doubt stems from the fact that it is Europe’s largest – and quite possibly one of its best – multi-arts and conference venue. Having hosted a whole range of events within the world of arts, theatre, music and drama, this is a creative hub that continues to flourish; one which has cemented its reputation as one of the UK’s finest auditoriums in thanks to its wonderful acoustics, top quality technical resources and generous capacity. As for reaching it, there are plenty of rail and underground stations close to hand.
Drapers’ Hall is a historic venue that has been utilised as the setting for untold numbers of prestigious events, from banquets to operas. It’s easy to see why its popularity has endured throughout the test of time, and that is simply because it is nothing short of stunning in its beauty. Original features, ornate details and breath-taking artwork that cannot fail to impress await your every glance here, whilst the generous maximum capacity of 700 and its fantastic location in the heart of the City of London, surrounded by good rail links, mean it is not likely to lose its fame any time soon.
