A London Retreat – Kensington Roof Gardens
Events at Kensington Roof Gardens
I have been to the legendary Kensington Roof Gardens for a night out with family and friends and absolutely loved it. So, I was interested to know what the venue would be like for a corporate event.
Kensington is not in the congestion charge zone, so there is no need to pay for that. There is a local NCP
who were charging £35 for parking. Then I came across this
site which directed me to the The Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington
. They provide 8 hours secure parking for just £25. It was easy to find, close to where I wanted to be and the staff were very friendly. The atmosphere in the hotel seemed nice, and would be worth considering for somewhere to stay in the future.
When you arrive at Kensington Roof Gardens, you need to take the lift to the 7th floor. This takes you to the entrance of the club and location for corporate events.
The bar is conveniently located to your left on entering and was set up with teas and coffees for the delegates. Usually the club is one big room, however for events it is divided into two areas.
Once the morning session was over we went had the opportunity to network and stretch our legs. Outside in the gardens, I found a haven of tranquility amongst the hustle and bustle of London.
After a lovely barbecue lunch outside in the heated Spanish Gardens, the conference continued. The afternoon session was broken up with a break for coffee, scones and mini doughnuts.
Cocktails and canapés were served in the Spanish Garden, with a talented Caricaturist from wickedcaricatures.com
on hand, both provided with compliments by eBay
. I certainly enjoyed the day learning so much about online publishing and e-commerce from leading experts, partnered with a stunning venue with first class hospitality. It was a great networking event and good to meet people in non travel related industries.
