4 ways to define unique


Exhibiting at IBTM in Barcelona this week has given us a chance to consider what makes our membership unique. Here’s our thoughts on what makes us stand out from the crowd.



Our membership is nothing if not steeped in heritage and history, from royal palaces and regal residences there is a wealth of choice for those who want to step back in time. From the Tudor elegance of Hampton Court Palace and Jacobean grandeur of Fulham Palace to the Georgian splendour of Spencer House and Victorian verve of Leighton House Museum, our membership really does reflect the changing architecture of the capital through the ages.



Tower Bridge and the Coca Cola London Eye are both regarded as great feats of engineering as well as global icons, characterising London for an international audience. We have a wealth of world-famous attractions amongst our membership providing a wealth of inspiration for events. Imagine hosting an evening soiree on the deck of HMS Belfast or in the Keep of the Tower of London? Private dinners become all the more spectacular when set against the atmospheric setting of Christopher Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral or amongst the renowned collections of Tate Britain, Tate Modern and the National Portrait Gallery.



Those with the sense of the bizarre will not be disappointed, whether it’s under the hull of 19th Century tea clipper, Cutty Sark, or on the roof of the National Theatre, there are plenty of unusual and quirky venues to instil a sense of wonder? The Sir John Soane Museum is the ultimate immersive treat, allowing you to dine in the famous architect’s house, preserved exactly the way he left it on his death. Nature lovers are also in for a treat with Kew Gardens, London Wetland Centre and ZSL London Zoo offering a wealth of flora and fauna themed experiences.



The cool, contemporary curves of the Laban Building and the achingly cool interiors of the Saatchi Gallery are just a couple of the sophisticated, modern spaces within our membership. The Whitechapel Gallery, one of the newest additions to the capital’s art-scene, full of exposed brick and striking art, guaranteed to get the creative juices flowing.
