In September we will be unveiling a lot more than just our new state of the art Elm Grove Conference Centre. Adding this new venue to our portfolio we thought it was a perfect time for a change of name, so in the coming months we will be relaunching ourselves as Roehampton Venues.
With a dedicated and creative events team on hand, interchangeable conference space and a skyline view overlooking London, this newest edition to SW15 will get your guests and clients seeing academic venues through a whole new light.
Situated on Roehampton Lane in the heart of Roehampton University, Elm Grove Conference Centre has been designed by MJP Architects and will offer a main conference area seating up to 120 guests. This main room can be broken down into three smaller rooms and adjacent to these there are two boardrooms holding up to 10 guests each.
Travelling up to the top floor, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful London skyline or into the landscaped courtyard. This floor can be then used for further meeting or exhibition space or a dining style as casual or as formal as you wish. Our outside terrace with stunning copper roof provides a real wow factor for any occasion. The conference centre also includes 32 guest bedrooms that are bookable all year round.
This is all in addition to our existing events spaces at Parkstead House and Grove House, both hidden in the heart of Roehampton on the edge Richmond Park and offering a unique mixture of traditional meeting rooms, exquisite banqueting suites and modern lecture halls. Our two conference centres, Duchesne and Queens Building, both have state of the art lecture theatres holding up to 300 delegates ideal for conferences, meetings and team away days.
The extensive grounds are perfect for team building and fun days and with stunning views over Richmond Park, a great setting for BBQs.
