The London Canal Museum in King's Cross has introduced free Wi-Fi to its meeting room, which caters for board and committee meetings and training events. The meeting room is used by a variety of organisations from the public, private, and charity sectors and is particularly useful when delegates are coming together from a variety of places, because of its convenient location for transport. King's Cross, St. Pancras, and Euston stations, and the London Overground, are all within walking distance, and no fewer than six Underground lines serve nearby King's Cross as well as numerous bus routes.
The meeting room layout is configured for each client and prices include self-service tea/coffee and biscuits on an unlimited basis, which is another considerable saving compared to paying by the cup. Various audio-visual equipment is available.
Previously, customers had to pay for Internet access, but the museum recognised that increasingly, customers have come to expect Wi-Fi and expect it to be free and to be easy to use. The Internet has become so central to all our lives and especially to business, that many customers feel cut off from the outside world if they are not connected.
Prices for the room start at £95, a real bargain in central London. There is room for up to 12 delegates around a boardroom table.
