Whether you prefer a historic building or a contemporary co-working environment, you have a wealth of excellent choices for reserving a private meeting space in Central London – so it can be hard to know what to choose.

They provide a variety of room sizes to accommodate the scale of your event, and with every booking, you’ll have dedicated events staff at your service to guarantee a delightful experience. Additionally, they offer catering services upon request, and their hospitality staff can provide a selection of food and beverages tailored to suit any event.

The Taffner Suite: A versatile event space

The Taffner Suite is one of their more intimate event spaces; it can accommodate up to twenty individuals and offers a variety of different seating arrangements. Rental rates start at just £100 per hour, and for corporate functions, it can be set up with a HD TV screen.
