The Rosewood Hotel is in the entertainment centre of London in Covent Garden. For a bigger party you can keep warm at Rosewood’s Grand Ballroom. It features two entrances via stairs that lead into a spacious area, including a foyer and three smaller rooms. The space is capable of fitting a total of 555 guests.

Fortnum & Mason
Furnished with antique items and a unique art collection, the Boardroom at Fortnum & Mason is a homey yet chic location to host any important business event – even Winston Churchill has visited this venue! This flexible space can accommodate 20 seated or 30 standing guests.
If you’re after something a little larger, try the Drawing Room at Fortnum & Mason. The intricate silk wallpaper, stylish furniture and high-tech audio visual equipment provide a sophisticated space for 60 seated or 80 standing guests. With natural light streaming into the room, the brightly lit venue is perfect for a lively daytime meeting.
Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city this winter? Just north of the city lies Hoxton, where you can find the peaceful, Grade-I listed almshouses and the Geffrye Museum. The Reading Rooms at the Geffrye Museum offer a cosy atmosphere for any winter event for up to 80 guests, featuring a stunning refurbished library with several fireplaces. The Reading Rooms are connected to the original almshouse Chapel, a beautiful, high-ceiling space complete with wooden pews and pulpit. The Geffrye Museum has a selection of six event spaces to choose from for a unique event experience.
The famous Somerset House sits along the River Thames and has a handful of spaces available for hire. The East Wing exudes elegance with its tall ceilings, refined and minimal furniture and warm lighting. The spacious room is suited for a huge variety of events, including dinners, product launches and conferences, and can entertain up to 300 guests.
If you want to really ‘wow’ your guests, host your event in the Embankment Galleries. This was originally a barrel-vaulted bargehouse connected directly to the Thames.
