Take a look at the following selection of some of West London’s best venues for a training day. With a wide variety of styles and facilities on offer, we hope there’s something for everyone.
IRIS is billed as the next generation of photographic studios. Bespoke packages are available to help meet your various corporate needs, with top notch personal service from the experienced inhouse team guaranteed. Highly contemporary in style and architecturally striking, yet neutral enough to adapt to suit individual requirements, it’s certainly a flexible offering. The capacity allows for up to 200 guests and the nearest rail links include West Brompton, Earls Court and Fulham Broadway.
Found on the popular King’s Road in the hotly coveted area of Chelsea, 508 Gallery is used for all kinds of creative events, from pop-ups to exhibitions. The main ground floor space benefits from lots of natural light and street frontage courtesy of the full-length display window. The additional basement-level showroom is more intimate and serves as a handy breakaway space, for a combined capacity of around 140 in all. Imperial Wharf and Fulham Broadway are amongst the nearest transport options.
Housed within a former library dating back to the Victorian era, The Bush Theatre in Shepherd’s Bush is right across the road from the Shepherd’s Bush Market tube stop. With several multi-purpose event spaces to its name, the venue recently underwent extensive refurbishment valued at more than £4 million, having re-launched to the public in March 2017 with modern facilities but plenty of characterful touches still intact.
Arthill Gallery is found on the ground floor of Lourdes Apartments, a converted church in West Kensington, with the contemporary nature of the recently updated interior gallery space contrasting with the charismatic art deco style exterior. Bright, fresh, modern and stylish, the space has been used for a diverse range of gatherings, including the likes of art shows, press events, dinners, lectures, private receptions and pop-up events for groups of up to 80 people.
Part of the All Star Lanes family, The Lodge at All Star West is like a playground and party space for adults, offering access to private bowling lanes, karaoke, a New York inspired menu and a private cocktail bar with its own dedicated mixologist. A great choice if you want to ensure any ice is well and truly broken and everyone is relaxed and having fun, the 80-person capacity stops things from feeling too crowded, and the guests will surely make good use of the close proximity to Queensway, Bayswater and Royal Oak stations.
