The Kia Oval

Kennington, London

The Kia Oval

The Kia Oval is a hidden gem for conference and events in central London. A stone’s throw from the River Thames and situated just outside the congestion charge zone, our venue surprises all with its proximity to the City.

With over 50 rooms overlooking the pitch with natural day light and a mix of modern and traditional, we can offer something for every taste. We bring together our experience in world class hospitality and a dedicated and flexible events team to deliver fantastic events with outstanding food. As a client from Beneficial Life states “when I have two MD’s coming up to me and saying it’s the best event they have been to, I think that says it all.”

With a dedicated team of event co-ordinators, you will be looked after by one team member from the point of enquiry right through to the morning of your event; at which point our experienced operational team will take over to ensure that your event runs impeccably. Our devotion to service and passion for events means we offer each client a bespoke experience.

Your event is one of a kind so your service should be too.

Our focus as a venue is not only on ensuring we continue our growth but on the customer experience for the 2000 events we hold per year; this experience starts from the moment a client enquires right through to the post event follow up. Each event is one of a kind, and we believe that the service we provide should be too. Our devotion to delivering the best events possible is exemplified by feedback from one of our repeat clients, St Giles Trust. “The staff at the Oval were amazing and super helpful and the food exceeded my expectations. All in all it was a great day and our staff really enjoyed the conference and for our first timers they were in awe of the grounds (I too am still in awe even though I’ve been there a few times).”
