In the first of its kind, this interactive video conference was designed to showcase the venues to potential clients, using a 3D tour of each building. Over 100 attendees were taken across the city using a virtual tube and introduced to each area with some unusual facts as they arrived, travelling from East to West London from the comfort of their own home.
Arriving at Hyde Park Corner, guests were informed that Marble Arch was originally supposed to be an addition to Buckingham Palace and traditionally only members of the Royal Family and certain guards could pass through the arch. At the doors of No.4 our Senior Events Manager, Jo Maish, then took everyone on a guided tour of our beautiful Grade II listed Edwardian townhouse in Mayfair.
Starting in our reception area with a view of the grand staircase and chandelier, the tour moved through the Marshall of Cambridge Room & Foyer to the Bill Boeing Room which is equipped with AV for conferences, as well as being a great blank canvas for themed events.
Upstairs to the fabulous Argyll Room & Terrace which is particularly popular for summer parties and BBQs on the unique terrace as well as receptions and dinners throughout the year. It is also a great daytime meeting space, with floor to ceiling windows providing lots of natural light.
Moving to the second floor Handley Page and Sopwith rooms which are predominantly used for meetings but work well in combination for a drinks reception and private dining. The third floor and lower ground floor also have additional meeting spaces, totalling nine rooms across five floors.
With a final look back down the staircase, Jo explained that exclusive hire of the whole venue was available at the weekends making it the perfect wedding venue as guests can really make the most of the whole house.
To take the virtual tour of No.4 Hamilton Place, have a look at day two of Virtually Live London– we are the last venue to be featured at around one hour and 25 minutes in (but we would recommend that you check out all of the other venues too!).
