The Langham, London
With a history of delighting guests and providing personalised service since 1865, The Langham, London is truly a London icon. With the recent addition of deluxe suites, British tavern, The Wigmore and a new spa, Chuan Body + Soul, the reimagining of Europe’s first Grand Hotel is ever evolving. We are delighted that The Langham, London is the host venue for The 2019 Bridelux Symposium.
The Savoy, London
From the moment the doors opened in 1889, The Savoy has helped create memories for generations of guests and colleagues. From that first kitchen job that led to international gastronomic success to families gathered together for Afternoon Tea to celebrate that special occasion, everyone has their own Savoy story. You don't just stay at The Savoy, The Savoy stays with you. We are truly delighted The Savoy, London is our host venue for The 2019 Bridelux Symposium.
Hotel Cafe Royal
The Pompadour Ballroom is the largest event space at Hotel Café Royal. The Grade II listed room and its original, ornate detailing have been sensitively restored to create a grand space for celebrations. The Louis XVI style room has a series of fluted Corinthian pilasters and mirrored panels with gilded frames, and its ceiling is decorated with frescos depicting scenes of love. The Pompadour Ballroom is an opulent space and combined with Hotel Café Royal’s careful and intuitive service, will make any wedding memorable. The grand ballroom can also be personalised to leave a tailor-made impression on your guests. At the far end of the room, large double doors open on to a pillared outdoor terrace with views on to Air Street and the panoramic sweep of Regent Street. It makes for a spectacular London wedding.
2 Temple Place
Nestled in the centre of London overlooking the Thames, the fantastic location and stunning interiors of Two Temple Place make it the perfect venue choice just minutes from the City. Two Temple Place is a spectacular neo-Gothic mansion completed in 1895, that combines the grandeur of a London mansion with the intimacy of a private home. Two Temple Place will be the location of our truly terrifying Halloween Party.
Woods' Silver Fleet, Silver Sturgeon
Silver Sturgeon's interiors and decks have been created by leading British designers and architects as light, luxe, relaxing spaces in warm, natural colours featuring pure white, oak, grey bird's eye maple & chestnut. The craft will be the location of our Friday afternoon sessions on The Thames with a few surprises along the way.
