Other venues include...

Kensington Royal Palace
Kensington Palace has been a royal home for over 300 years and parts of the Palace remain a private residence for members of the Royal Family today. The magnificent State Apartments and the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection are housed in the Palace and can be toured as part of your event.

Reception and dining rooms include the Orangery, situated within its own private grounds within the heart of Kensington Gardens, and the formal dining saloons within the palace itself alongside the State Apartments.

Hampton Court Palace
Specifically built to entertain and impress. The scene of many great events and lavish entertainments over the centuries, many of the magnificent state rooms are offered as unique and regal settings for banquets, receptions and other prestigious functions.

Dine amid the splendour of Henry VIII's Great Hall - originally a dining room for members of the King's court, it regularly seated 600 people in two sittings twice a day. Smaller groups amy prefer the Banqueting House (built for William III for his own private entertaining) for a more intimate setting for lunches and dinners. For true river enthusiasts and for that extra special touch, take time out to journey to Hampton Court by luxury river boat with champagne reception.

The Royal Observatory, Greenwich
Situated on the hill in Greenwich Royal Park, commanding breathtaking views of the City of London and the River Thames, the Royal Observatory also houses one of the finest and most fascinating collections of time-related scientific instruments in the world, including the famous Harrison timekeepers.

The Observatory's team of astronomers and horologists can be booked for your event.

The Guards Museum, Birdcage Walk(opposite St James's Park)
This is a fascinating place with displays of the history of the Guards and the various campaigns in which they have played a part. The largest collection of VCs in the country and the original flag flown at the battle of Waterloo are just some of the items on show.

We can organise cocktail receptions or full regimental dinners (served by the Guards). We can also arrange for the regimental bands to play. An exceptional venue and very reasonably priced too.

Other Venues outside London
Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire
Home today to the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill.

Warwick Castle
Re-live the mediaeval feasting and entertainment of a historic night before battle with musicians, jesters, magicians and even fighting knights.

Unusual Activities
For those who want something out of the ordinary, try a range of tank driving and military-style activities that are fun, exciting and stimulating - and that won't be forgotten. Imagine the thrill of driving a 56-ton tank over a car, trying to beat the SAS woodland patrol challenge, firing a 18th century musket and mortar, or "swimming" an amphibious truck?

Treasure hunts are another favourite and can incorporate an exciting variety of transport including helicopters, vintage cars, horse and carriage, Ferraris and yachts.

Packages are tailored to your budget and location - from a treasure hunt around London's parks to a two day Arctic Circle challenge, anything is possible. Out of the ordinary venues include battleships, castles, football stadiums and desert islands.
