On one of the City’s oldest streets, Founders’ Hall is home to the 14th-century livery company for brass workers. The venue itself is a modern affair, built in the mid-80s using traditional materials to striking effect. Its main space is defined by some large porthole windows that look onto the gardens of the next-door church. For smaller gatherings there’s the traditional-feel Parlour on the ground floor or, one level above, the cosy Master’s & Clerks’ Room.
Don’t be misled by the name. The Little Ship Club is well set up for large-scale events. Right next to Southwark Bridge, each of its three big spaces come with show-stopping river views. Large windows define the light-filled Dining Room. In the Clubroom, oil paintings and nautical trinkets speak to a rich nautical history. The Club Library, which can be taken with the adjoining River Room, offers built-in AV that makes it a solid choice for meetings and presentations.

The home of the Royal Society for Public Health was built in 1775 to neoclassical townhouse designs by the celebrated Adam brothers. Today, its rooms are still true to the original blueprint. The ground-floor Sainsbury and Adam rooms comprise the Adam Suite, which looks onto the secluded Courtyard. A level above, the Harben and Heggie rooms are connected by a gold doorway. Take them together as the Harben Suite and you have a grand space for receptions or meetings.

An award-winning venue in Clerkenwell, The Goldsmiths’ Centre is a charity-run creative hub with six well-appointed event spaces. Fusing old and new, it sees a purpose-built modern structure surround a Grade II-listed Victorian school, with an atrium linking the two. Our pick of the spaces is the fourth-floor Agas Harding Suite, which opens out onto a roof terrace and biodiversity garden, and comprises a conferencing suite and a boardroom.

Opened by the Queen in 2002, Haberdashers’ Hall is a contemporary home for a richly historical institution. Oak panelling and a vaulted ceiling make the main Livery Hall a standout space for showpiece presentations and gala dinners. A marble fireplace helps the Luncheon Room add ceremony to smaller gatherings, while the Courtyard & Orangery combine for serene summer receptions. Look out too for the unusual, semi-circular Court Room. For business-first events, webcasts and video conferencing can be enabled throughout.

The Naval and Military Club, generally referred to by its nickname The In & Out, is one of London’s oldest private members clubs. Occupying a Grade II-listed building in St James’s Square, it was founded in 1862 by a group of officers who wanted a home-from-home base in the centre of town. The venue’s wide range of spaces extends to a secluded courtyard that can hold up to 300 for a party, with or without a marquee. Inside, noteworthy rooms include the Astor Room, which has 17th-century wood panelling and a private balcony, and the grand King Harald V Room, which lends itself to banquets and receptions. Ampersand is the sole caterer.Venue review of The In & Out

On a quiet square close to Moorgate, Brewers’ Hall is the 20th-century home of a 15th-century livery company. Across a marble lobby, at the top of a carved oak staircase, three interconnected function rooms marry a rich history to modern facilities. The oak-panelled Livery Hall is topped with chandeliers and heraldic crests. The pine-panelled Court Room is a useful reception area that’s grand enough to host standalone meetings and dinners. The homely Committee Room is for more intimate gatherings.
Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Madness of King George and The Avengers all used the beautiful Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich as a backdrop. On the site of the birthplace of Henry VIII and
Elizabeth I, the college contains many remarkable areas for entertaining, including the Painted Hall with its stunning baroque ceiling, the atmospheric Undercroft and the Upper Hall, which is a
great platform for presentations and speeches. The former Quarters of the Admiral President is an elegant, stand-alone Georgian building with views over the river. Other facilities include a
skittles alley, a private pier and spacious grounds that can accommodate large marquees.
