‘And it’s all in a good cause’, reports Briony KeyHistory, great conference facilities, a central London location, and a cool blend of old and new design – welcome to 30 Euston Square.
The new headquarters of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has just been launched. The quirky new 6-floor venue has contemporary, adaptable rooms that merge happily with the traditional tiles and fitments that come with its Grade II* listed status.
I’ve never seen 3D projector screens, digital signage and Dolby surround-sound speakers fit quite so well with preserved oak panelling and vast Victorian atriums, but there’s always a first time.
The show-round included the 300-seater auditorium, some of the 18 meeting rooms, the heritage rooms (they have retained the traditional features) for intimate private dining – and the light-flooded penthouse state rooms, with capacity for up to 216.
Rooms can be easily themed and tailored for everything from small, intimate meetings to conferences and exhibitions. There are private entrance facilities and a striking rooftop terrace with great views over London.
Yvette Bradley, General Manager at 30 Euston Square, said: ‘As well as providing a world-class venue, we also benefit from an exceptionally convenient location. Euston Square is within walking distance of three major railway stations and through Euston has direct access to Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. Paris, via St Pancras, is just 2.5 hours away.’
All profits generated through 30 Euston Square are returned to the RCGP to support its primary patient care work.
