No matter what sort of event you are holding, be it a conference, exhibition or wedding, the location you choose is vitally important. We’re really proud of being based in the heart of the City of London. We love our city and think it offers everything you could want for whatever you need. Here’s our top reasons why London is brilliant:
London is really easy to get to
It might sound a little unsexy but one of the great things about London is its excellent transport links. If you are travelling within the UK the train network into the capital is regular and reliable while air travel into London is also great no matter where in the world you are coming from.
Once in London The Brewery is really easy to get to – we’re close to Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Barbican stations which can be reached via a variety of the tube lines. Travel around London is really simple – you can get an Oyster card so that you just tap your card for payment on tubes and buses.
The roads aren’t too bad either, and if you are driving yourself then while we don’t have parking on site we are really close to the NCP public car park at The Barbican.
There’s an amazing history
The City of London has some wonderful landmarks to visit no matter what your interests are. One of the most iconic landmarks is St Paul’s Cathedral, a sight which can be seen from all over the city but is well worth a visit to take in the beauty close up. We also have our royal connections with Tower Bridge and the Tower of London both close by. Did you know you can go inside Tower Bridge and even walk across the glass floor allowing you to see the cars crossing beneath you.
Great places to stay
London has a plethora of wonderful hotels for your guests to stay and with the great transport links you can stay anywhere in the Capital quite easily. There’s some of the world’s most well-known hotels in London such as the Ritz and the Savoy but there’s also something for any budget. For your guests attending an event at The Brewery, we recommend the nearby Montcalm London City hotel which offers fantastic comfort and luxury in a great setting.
Wonderful food and drink
London is a foodie paradise, where a wealth of traditions and customs has come together to create a diverse range of restaurants to suit any palate. Some of the world’s most well-known chefs have restaurants in London including Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal. For a bit of history, visit The Jamaica Wine House which is now a pub but was London’s very first Coffee House. Opened in 1652, Samuel Pepys was a regular.
Shop ‘til you drop
London is also an iconic shopping destination allowing the guests at your event to grab some great bargains and a souvenir before heading home. Famous locations like Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street are great but in the City of London you can find all you would need with great shopping areas including One New Change and Leadenhall Market.
