The Meetings Show will run this week in London from July 8 to 10 at the Olympia Conference Centre. The city’s tourism board, London & Partners, will be on-hand, and will also be promoting some notable new event venues that have recently opened or are due to debut in the coming months.
At the Roundhouse in Camden, a rooftop garden complete with trees, sun loungers, sofas and even a swimming pool will welcome guests throughout July and August. The venue has space for 120 people overlooking the venue’s popular ‘Camden Beach’ and views out across the London skyline, and is a good pick for summer parties and events.
The Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone is now available for room reservations. The historic building has been recently restored with 26 bedrooms that have 270 degree views of Marylebone and the city beyond. Little information has been released about the venue and bookings can only be made by email or phone.
Near Barbican, The Brewery has turned the venue’s 18th century cobbled courtyard into a secret garden in the City of London neighborhood. The building has a raised clear roof – in case of any summer showers – and outdoor seating.
On the banks of the River Thames above The Globe’s Swan restaurant is the newly refurbished Shakespearean Balcony Room, with panoramic views of the river and St Paul’s Cathedral framed by floor to ceiling French doors, opening out to an exclusive private balcony.
