The best training rooms in London

A good room is crucial to the success of a training session. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best, most well-equipped blank canvas spaces, conference rooms and lecture theatres for your next work training day.

Updated on 12 March 2024

The level of training you offer to your colleagues or clients can make or break a team. We’d go so far as to say, training is one of the most important things you can give your team to keep everyone at the top of their game.

Training rooms, therefore, are crucial to nailing an effective session where everyone leaves feeling motivated and inspired. As we now know, our environment can act as either a help or a hindrance when it comes to performance, so we’re of the opinion that a change is as a good as a holiday when it comes to training sessions. We’ve all know what a bad training session looks like - a stuffy room, no natural light, and poor equipment to get your messages across. Getting everyone out of their usual space can freshen things up, inspire creativity and re-energise, if done properly.

The best training rooms in London often offer the full package, with the latest in AV technology, webcams, mics, projectors and more provided as part of your booking. They may also come equipped with more traditional tools like flipcharts and projectors if you prefer doing things in a more physical – rather than digital – way. Aside from the things inside of the training room, you might also want to consider external factors when searching for a venue. Is it easy to get to? Is there a nice reception area (especially important if you’re putting on training for clients you want to impress)? Is there a kitchen or are there catering facilities? You get the idea.

Choosing the best training room for your event takes a little bit of thought, to ensure you’re ticking all the right boxes for your group. We’ve built a little list of our favourite venues for team training days, covering location, size and equipment, as well as the availability of food and drink. Keep scrolling for some of our favourites and remember - just click on the venue for more information and booking details.
