Historical British venues for conferences & events

Our island is steeped in history and this blog shares some of our favourite, quintessentially British historical venues. They share a uniquely rich cultural heritage perfect for your next corporate event.

Let’s explore them, together, starting with one of the most important places in recent world history.

Churchill War Rooms

Based in the Treasury building at Whitehall, and you can lead your guests down into the basement to the rooms where some of the most important events of the war were discussed and acted upon.

Winston Churchill himself once roamed these spaces, with the fate of the Western world in his palms. Now, after 60 years of peace time, they can be used for a memorable event for you and your team. An abundance of spaces, from a state-of-the-art conference room to fantastic dining spaces.

This all makes the rooms ideal for dinners, meetings, receptions, networking events, awards dinners, and seminars of up to 350 guests.
