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.
