London's best meeting rooms for hire

London isn't short of meetings rooms for hire. So, we've curated a list of some of the best the city has to offer. Whether you're looking to host a small group in a boardroom or impress clients in a fantastic restaurant, this list has it all.

Updated on 12 January 2024

Whether you're hosting important clients, conducting interviews or holding a company wide event, picking the right spot for your meeting is essential. It’s not just about size and location, the setting you choose can really impact the tone: bright spaces full of natural lighting can give a professional feel that's sure to get your meeting off to a great start. Equally you want somewhere that suits all your technological needs, because there's nothing worse than having to fumble around with cables and screens whilst trying to impress a client.

Another thing to consider when you’re looking at the perfect meeting room for your event is what facilities are on offer. Are there good AV facilities for delivering a presentation? Or perhaps you want something altogether more comfortable with lounge chairs and low tables that will help people relax to ensure a wonderful, creative process. Aside from the setup there are also the little extras to consider. Does it serve food and drink (because everyone knows you can’t think properly when you’re hangry)? You might want to put on a breakfast before you kick things off or perhaps you’d prefer to provide tea and biscuits to allow attendees to refuel throughout the day. Whatever you’re after, we can help.

Explore our pick of meeting rooms that offer the best of both - excellent facilities and inspiring surroundings. Our favourite meeting rooms in London come in all shapes and sizes, from private rooms in fantastic restaurants to historic hotels that offer a piece of history paired with the latest AV tech. So whether it’s an impressive setting that adds a touch of luxury, or a fun meeting space that will engage and inspire, explore our pick of the best meeting rooms for hire in London.
