Hidden Gems Venues, Calcot Manor Hotel, Queen Mary University of London and Gracepoint

Calcot Manor Hotel – Located in the Cotswolds, this beautiful Gloucestershire hotel offers everything you could want from a boutique hotel. Boasting 35 individually-designed bedrooms, this venue could be perfect for an away day, or board meeting for top-level executives.

The venues’ meeting rooms are perfect if you want to opt for a huddle around their fantastic covered firepit outside; for a casual conversation or if you want to hold a meeting for up to 150 theatre style, you can do so in ‘The Loft’ event space. The Calcot Manor Hotel is just 30 minutes from Bristol, and 45 minutes from Swindon this would be a great venue for a rural retreat.

Queen Mary University of London – When not being used to education the masses, Queen Mary University offers some excellent options for conferences and events. Among these spaces is ‘The Octagon’. Located in the Grade II listed Queen’s Building, this beautifully restored room offers a lovely backdrop for gala dinners, or small conferences. The space can hold up to 240 banqueting, 180 cabaret, or 500 for a reception. So, if you are looking for something away from central London, but that is close to main line tube stations then this could be a great one to keep in mind.

Gracepoint – This historic venue located in the heart of Islington was previously the popular Carlton Cinema, which was built in 1930. This art deco building oozes original features and its auditorium seats can cover over 900 people in a theatre style layout. In additional to this space, the downstairs foyer areas can be utilised for over 300 standing, and upstairs you will find breakout rooms suitable for 180, 80 and 70 standing. These would be great additional spaces for some small sessions, one to one meetings or crew offices.
