For some of the most refined, elegant, interesting and unique venues in various locations across the country, you really can’t beat a Searcys venue.
If you’re planning a business or corporate event, Searcys venues can be hired for meeting rooms, conference halls, fully equipped auditoriums, private dining and banqueting rooms. Absolutely perfect for parties and weddings, too.
Did you know that the London Transport Museum is run by Searcys? How about The Gherkin? Some of our very favourite venues in London and further afield are catered and managed by Searcys, which isn’t necessarily common knowledge! So we’re here to enlighten you.
We love these venues for their luxury hospitality and catering, providing a first class experience. Of course, at the heart of Searcys is the fantastic selection of food and drink at exceptional quality, and they never disappoint.
You’ll find that you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to making a decision on which venue to hold your event, so we’ve created a handy list of a few of our favourites.
Take your pick from The Hall – a Georgian style banqueting hall with oak-panelled walls, Parliament Chamber with the atmosphere of a gracious country house dining room, the Luncheon Room which overlooks the Gardens (this room can be used with the adjoining Hall) and the Drawing Room – a small room ideal for private dinner parties.
Walls are adorned with oil paintings and each room has natural daylight. The rooms are suitable for any occasion, whether you’re looking to hold a meeting or conference, throw a dinner party or host a wedding.
There are also the award-winning Gardens with space for a marquee for 1000 guests, ideal for summer parties and weddings.
If you’re looking for tradition and classical elegance, 10-11 Carlton House is where you’ll find it. Perfectly located, all event spaces fill with natural daylight and provide views over The Mall & St James’s Park or Waterloo Place.
That all-important Wifi for your meeting is complimentary and the resident AV team is completely at your disposal. Say goodbye to technical hitches and glitches.
An excellent choice for weddings, too. Picture a sweeping staircase, classical period detail and collections of eclectic art. Also for your private use is the secluded Garden Square outside the front, perfect for your photographs and reception in the summertime.
Aside from the stunning views of the city, once you step into the grand building, you’ll find it hard to believe that you are actually in 21st century London.
If you’re looking to impress at your meeting or conference, this is the place to do it. At the heart of the recently award-winning 30 Euston Square, you’ll find a 300 seat auditorium, contributing to the magnificence of the venue. The space comes equipped with everything you need and more, including a state-of-the-art screen, 3D projector and surround sound speakers. Video conferencing and streaming is also available.
If you’re looking to host, say, 30 rather than 300 people, you may find one of the many ground floor meeting rooms, Heritage boardrooms or penthouse State Rooms, slightly more practical. They all include AV equipment.
You can also hold your wedding and parties here. Throw your special event in the stunning Rooftop Terrace – enjoy the impressive views whilst being served canapés by your waiter, and you’ll be taking home memories that you won’t forget.
Quite conveniently, the venue is also home to 41 luxury boutique en-suite bedrooms. Your guests or delegates won’t have to travel far to crash for the night.
One of the more unique venues in London, you probably wouldn’t have even considered holding your function here. But if you do, you’ll find yourself hosting an utmost impressive event.
There is a choice of the Boardroom, Cubic Theatre and Foyer and the Museum Galleries themselves. Included in the Boardroom is state of the art technology, wifi and natural sunlight, perfect for presentations, team away days and daytime meetings. The 121 seat Theatre also includes all the AV equipment that you’d need, providing an ideal space for presentations, seminars and screenings.
For a truly spectacular event, hold your dinner party, reception or awards ceremony within the Museum Galleries.

The Octagon Room speaks for itself. You have to see it to believe it, but as you can imagine, it is pretty striking. A most interesting place to hold your dinner, reception, civil ceremony or meeting.
The Card Room, so called for its history of being used for card games and gambling, has a south-facing view through the French windows of beautiful Georgian gardens.
A versatile space, the rooms are ideal for any occasion at the Assembly Rooms.
A World Heritage Site, Blenheim Palace is like no other building you’ll have stepped foot in before. A truly magnificent house, set in over 2,000 acres of gardens and parkland, holding your function here would be a most special treat.

Included in the many choices of room are the elegant and versatile Campaign Rooms, the completely self-contained Spencer-Churchill Room with gorgeous views over Blenheim Park and The Gallery Room – a self-contained area with a beamed ceiling, located in the Stable Courtyard.
To create a magical wedding and reception, you could hire The Orangery with its private entrance, glass ceiling and terrace, for up to an impressive 2,030 guests. If you don’t know quite that many people to invite, you may find the somewhat more intimate Marlborough Room more appropriate. Saying that, you’ll be sharing the room with a grand fireplace, two stunning chandeliers and a double-vaulted ceiling.
For weddings of up to 300 guests, The Saloon, Long Library and The Great Hall provide exquisite settings. Hold your extra special private dinner here too. Or in the summertime, why not opt for a marquee on the South Lawn, enjoying the spectacular view of the Palace itself.
And naturally, the service and catering that you’ll experience at the Palace will be no less than fit for royalty.
If you’re looking for event spaces with a contemporary backdrop, then look no further than M by Montcalm Shoreditch. This is a new landmark for London, and is sure to become one of the most popular.
