If you’re not beholden to geographical restrictions then here are some of the best national venues:

Lords, London – for a real old school, traditional get together then Lords, the home of cricket, offers an extremely posh and very British experience. The Long Room is particularly grand and the Pavilion is a Grade II listed building. If you like the idea but not sure about the traditional aspect then they also have the J.P Morgan Media Centre which is modern and fully equipped for all conference needs.

Battersea Power Station – nothing does imposing and industrial quite like this iconic building. The Boiler House has been converted to hold events for up to 1000 guests and has some amazing views. For grandeur and awe then this venue ticks all the boxes. For help Planning a business event, visit

They will cater for smaller events too and events with up to 10,000 attendees! With natural daylight pouring in and air conditioning, this will be a comfortable affair.

The Ice Bar – this is the coolest venue in London – literally! The walls, stools and artwork are all made from ice which comes from Sweden and even the glasses are made from ice. Wrap up warm for this one but it will certainly make an impression.

The Drum – if the theme of your event has green or sustainability overtones then why not choose a venue that reflects those. The Drum at Wembley is one of the most environmentally friendly venues in the UK right now and has a variety of settings to suit any event.
