Last week I visited the Coin Street Conference Centre for a work event. It’s such a gem that I didn’t even know existed – and it’s social, hurrah! The location is great (5 mins from Waterloo) and the spaces are large and bright and inspiring. We used the Neighbourhood Room, which was perfect for a full day team training. I’m not sure where they get their catering from, but it was delicious! It looks like they have loads of spaces to hire (including a roof garden), so it’s definitely worth checking them out if you’re looking for a Central London venue for any occassion.

Recently, I was lucky enough to attend a work event at this stunning venue. It was such a surprise to find this little church in such a busy and commercial part of London. It has been restored in a very modern way, with large glass walls and low lighting, but it still keeps all its charm, and feels like a sanctuary away from all the traffic outside. It was a perfect venue for casual Christmas drinks and live music.
