Stylish and Memorable Event Venues


Aug 19, 2011 | Editors

For many people when searching for an event venue today, facilities and cost are not the only deciding factors in their venue choice. If people want their event to stand out and be remembered the venue has to be more than merely practical. It is not the event facilities that will get people talking.

Venues.org.uk has hundreds of listings showcasing venues all over the UK that can be hired for your event needs whether it's for a business meeting, a wedding, a conference or a team building day. Here are a few that are more than a bit unique for those of you who want your event to be a memorable one.

The Lowry in Manchester offers a variety of flexible meeting spaces for anything from conferences and presentations to weddings and Christmas parties. The venue itself can only be described as dramatic. The Lowry is a world class visual and performing arts centre and with its innovative design and waterfront location, it is sure to create a stir.

Courthouse by Doubletree Hilton is a stunning venue set in trendy Soho, London. The venue caters for business meetings, corporate events, weddings and much more. Not only is this venue arresting to look at, it also has a very interesting history and has kept many of its original features, even down to the jail cells in The Bar, which were originally the holding cells of the magistrate’s court. While sipping signature cocktails you can regale your colleagues with details of the former inmates, including among others, Oscar Wilde and Johnny Rotten.

For a venue that is steeped in history and is sure to make a lasting impression on your guests, take a look at Leeds Castle. Once a Norman stronghold and home to Henry VIII, the castle is set on an island surrounded by parkland and is available for meetings, banquets, conferences and much more. This is most definitely a regal venue in an unparalleled setting.

For an event that is “out of this world” you can do no better than the National Space Centre in Leicester. The venue combines a state-of-the-art building and professional meeting facilities with an opportunity to see the attraction. They even provide simulated space missions for team-building exercises. Definitely a venue that aims for the stars!
