In Venue finding, Venue Information

When it comes to corporate events, there are so many different types of spaces to choose from and the question is, which venue is best for your event? This is where a good venue finder can help you make the right choice.

You may be amazed by how many different types of venues there are – some you will know and some you may not be aware that you can book for an event.

In this blog we’re exploring the different types of venues that you can book for an event – whether it is for a conference, meeting, training course, dinner or social activity.

Hotels are a one stop shop, you can hold everything under one roof. Hotels are a great choice offering meeting, food, beverage and accommodation all on site and delegates don’t have to leave the premises.

Conference Hotel - Apex Bath

There are so many different styles of Hotels and there is sure to be one that will suit your company ethos, budget and style of event.  Some examples are:

  • Modern trendy hotels
  • Country house hotels
  • City hotels
  • Boutique hotels
  • Resort hotels
  • Large convention style hotels

Conferences/Training Centres

Conference centres lend themselves very well to training style meetings but nowadays offer a broad spectrum of space for other events. Most centres have good facilities with plenty of natural daylight.  Conference Centres are tailor made for conferences and usually include much of the AV, which can help when budgeting.



Colleges and Universities


Most colleges and universities make their facilities available for corporate events. Some can only be booked during the university holidays but some also offer their spaces during termtime. The rates can be very competitive and can suit those with a lower budget.

Stadia and sporting grounds


Stadium and arena venues not only offer some of the most flexible event spaces but they also offer great transport links and often car parking on site.


An added plus for these venues is holding your event where many great sportsman have played and can be used as an attraction to your delegates. Some also offer a tour around the grounds so your delegates can see and experience ‘backroom space’ not normally shown to the public

Theatres, Cinemas, Screening Rooms


This style of venue provides a unique experience with an added touch of glamour!  The tiered seating ensures a comfortable experience whilst their advanced technology can allow you create a truly impressive event.


Additionally as cinemas are generally less busy during the day they often offer very reasonable rates for daytime events.

Museums and Art Galleries

The UK has some amazing Museums and Art Galleries offering a range of spaces, some of which can be booked during the day and others which can only be booked when the venues are closed. These venues can create a unique and amazing event, great for drinks receptions and dinners

Castles, Palaces and Stately Homes

If you are really looking for somewhere with a wow factor then look no further than one of these venues. Be prepared to pay a little more but you know the saying ‘you get what you pay for’

Historic venues

Stationers Hall

The UK is steeped in history so it’s no surprise that there are some great historic venues where you can hold an event. Choose from medieval and Livery Halls to Churchill’s wartime bunker. From ancient Roman artefacts, mighty Cathedrals, to a grade II listed Victorian Bath House, to name just a few!


Exclusive use venues

Farleigh Wallop - exclusive use venue

Are you aware that you can book a venue exclusively for your group or event? This is a great option to consider if you require privacy or confidentiality. Alternatively, some venues offer partial exclusive use, where you can book a separate building instead of the entire venue, which can be more cost-effective.”

Crossbasket Castle - exclusive use

Private Dinner venues

Looking to book a private dinner? There are venues that can offer a private space for 10 people or a Gala dinner for 1000 and anything in between!

Glenaagles - The Broadcasting Room

Rooftop venues and venues with outdoor space


These have been particularly popular recently and there are now some fabulous venues that can offer outside space particularly good for summer parties and drinks receptions.

Venues with an activity

This is another venue type which we have seen an increase in interest in, during the past couple of years. Teams and groups are looking to go out and have some fun or companies looking for an alternative way to entertain clients – Golf Days, Crystal Maze for example.

London Bars & Restaurants

Garden Party

These venues are ideal for drinks receptions or parties on an exclusive basis or just hiring a private room or space in a bar or restaurant. However they can also be used as quirky venues for a meeting or presentation if you are looking for something a little different.

And many more for example…..
