About St. James Court, A Taj Hotel

Description

Taj 51 Buckingham Gate is a five-star hotel located in what was once the residence for palace courtiers; a stunning, sprawling building alive with rich-toned brickwork and heritage architectural details. Its position is unrivalled, a short walk from the iconic Buckingham Palace, while within the building guests can enjoy the Michelin-Starred South Asian restaurant, Business Club and J Wellness Circle Spa.

If you're looking for somewhere special to host an event, Taj 51 Buckingham Gate can offer not only an opulent experience, but one of the city's most comprehensive selection of event spaces, with an impressive 16 options across the site. From a rooftop terrace with views of central London's skyline to contemporary meeting rooms and an Edwardian ball room, Taj 51 Buckingham Gate quite literally has it all.

So, whether you're planning an awards ceremony, important client meeting, big birthday or even wedding reception, the experienced events team has everything you might need to plan the perfect shindig. The website offers an overview of all the spaces, but among the highlights for us is the St James' Courtyard with beautiful mosaic flooring and al fresco dining for 200 people. For a glamorous party, the Edwardian I ballroom features wood panelled walls and stand-out chandeliers for up to 300 people, depending on the layout of the room. And, then, for an atmospheric private supper, there's the Quilon Private Dining Room which is Michelin-Starred and boasts a central dining table for 18 guests.

With its award-winning restaurant and impressive reputation when it comes to food, it's a no-brainer that all catering is provided in house and can be discussed with the events team who are happy to work out the right menu for you - whether that be a seated multi-course dinner, canapes or something totally unique and bespoke for your event.
