Houses of Parliament
We were allowed the privilege of visiting a very special venue this week: The Houses of Parliament opened their doors to showcase their venue spaces.
We were welcomed in the Members Dining Room with a champagne reception and an array of delicious canapes, our personal favourite was the miniature “steak and chip”! The grandeur of the dining was spectacular and would be fantastic for a sit down dinner or lunch event. The dining room is actually still a working room where members of parliament have many sit down lunches.
It was fantastic seeing the many intimate and ornate rooms that could be used with the House of Commons, perfect for formal conferences or smaller dinners. However, the star of the show really was the Terrace Pavilion:
This space has a capacity of 200 standing with one glass wall that leads out on to a small patio area with the most fantastic views across the Thames and the London eye. This space would be beautiful for a summer party at dusk as you watch the sun set over the river or equally for a Christmas party with the fantastic view of the twinkly lights of London over the river.
This venue really did feel extra special, very exclusive and oh so very British!
