Whether you are on the look-out for a breath-taking boardroom backdrop, a romantic private dining setting for two or a creative space to inspire potential clients, take a look at a selection of spectacular small spaces available for private hire in London today:
Situated in the heart of historic Bankside, Southwark Cathedral offers private hire for special events within its impressive arched architecture. Six boardroom spaces, each with their own unique character, are available in the venue’s Conference Centre next to London Bridge Station and are perfectly equipped for delivering corporate presentations. Few people know that the venue in days gone by used to be a piggery, a bakery and event a Court where the death sentence was sent down!
The Coca Cola London Eye is one of the smallest event space in the capital with its individual capsules. Guests can enjoy incredible 360 aerial views of arguably one of the best cities in the world, whilst a personal host is on hand to serve a chilled bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne to make it a day never to forget!
Nestled deep within the West Stand is Twickenham Stadium’s best kept secret, the Twickenham Cellar. The secret room was originally marked as ‘Project X’ on the venue’s construction plans and is now Twickenham’s most exclusive dining facility, seating up to 14 guests for a luxury seven course tasting menu.
The Fourth Form Room truly is the spiritual heart of Harrow School, originally dating back to 1615 when the school first opened its doors. Located in the Old School’s building, the imposing wood-panelled room that seats 12 guests, is covered with graffiti of the ‘Giants of the Old’, including prestigious alumni such as Lord Bryon, Sir Robert Peel and Sir Winston Churchill. The venue was brought to the global stage when memorably used as the filming location for Professor Flitwick’s levitation lesson in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Deep in the heart of the National Gallery, the Turner Room is a small but unique octagonal space seating up to 36 guests, showcasing paintings by JMW Turner himself and Claude, the eponymous French Master. Turner bequeathed these works to the Gallery, stipulating that they be hung together with the Claude masterpieces of very similar composition, an act which speaks volumes of his predecessors and inspiration.
Immerse yourself in over 200 years of consumer culture in the vibrant Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. With over 16,000 products, the Branding Hall offers an idea-generating backdrop for up to 80 guests or why not take a trip down the Time Tunnel to learn how branding has evolved.
For guests searching for an intimate location for a corporate catch-up or board meetings with a difference, look no further than Kew Palace’s Royal Kitchens. Untouched for the last 200 years, the evocative venue now seamlessly blends old-world charm with the latest AV technology and superb acoustics for up to ten guests.
As the former home of the Victorian artist Lord Leighton, Leighton House is the only purpose-built studio house open to the public in the UK, and as such provides a truly unique private hire experience in the ‘private palace of ‘art’. The venue now offers between 16 and 60 guests the opportunity to dine in Leighton’s Dining Room at his original table, hardly ever used since 1896!
