Conferences: Top 6 Quirky Conference Venues

Want to host a conference with a twist? These quirky conference venues will have your guests in awe. All ideally located in London, they're set to inspire attendees, thanks to their unique history and stunning interiors.

Take a look at our top six quirky conference venues, handpicked by our team of venue experts.

ZSL London Zoo

ZSL London Zoo

You might be surprised, but ZSL London Zoo is an excellent place to host a conference. It has a superb range of professional and private spaces with views of eye-catching animal residents and environments. For example, The Prince Albert Suite is a conference venue unlike any other, with its spectacular rooftop terrace overlooking Penguin Beach.

Even better feeling than merely hosting an event is to have a philanthropic cause behind it. By holding an adventurous conference at London Zoo, you are helping to contribute to ZSL - the charity behind London Zoo, which supports the global conservation of animals and their habitats.

London Film Museum

Located in Covent Garden, the London Film Museum is perfect for any central London conference. It's unique, memorable and perfectly versatile, with five spaces available to hire exclusively or individually across the building.

Central to the London Film Museum is the hugely popular Bond In Motion exhibition, which would be the talking point of your conference. Enjoy the sophisticated combination of history, British film and culture that only 007 can bring to your event.
