Whether your company is based in Hertfordshire or you’re looking for somewhere for your team to escape from London for a day, there are a wide variety of inspirational venues in Hertfordshire that will fit the bill. We’ve picked just five to highlight, ranging from traditional country houses to the somewhat more unusual!
This beautiful 14th century former monastery is set within 19 acres of stunning parkland. It’s a great venue for an away day, completely away from the hustle and bustle of corporate life. Yet Hitchin Priory is still easily accessible by road and train. With 16 meeting and conference rooms and 52 ensuite bedrooms, it’s perfect for treating delegates to an overnight stay. The meeting rooms are well equipped with AV and wifi. And outside, the grounds are fantastic for all manner of team-building activities.
Just 30 miles from London, the Grade II-listed Knebworth House is a breathtaking and impressive venue. Knebworth is popular as a location for films and television series, as well as hosting concerts and classic car rallies. Parts of the house, period barns and gardens are available for private hire. Whether your event is for 15 or 200, there will be an event space to suit your particular requirements.
Warner Brothers Studio Tour
How about holding your corporate event at Hogwarts? A great opportunity for an immersive experience where everyone can really get involved, the magical world of Harry Potter is a fantastic corporate event venue. Younger members of staff may well have grown up reading the books, older staff members may have read the books to their children and everyone knows the films. As well as being a hugely popular tourist attraction, there are inside and outdoor event spaces available for private hire, plus a screening room if you’re planning to give a presentation. Ideal for up to 60 guests, this is a brilliant and imaginative setting for team building. Where else could you get everyone flying on a broomstick?!
Want to steer well clear of the typical concept of a conference or boring business event? Take a look at PRYZM in Watford. Designed around a cool club concept, hire a private room for 10-15 people or take over the entire venue; complete with the main psychedelic club area for up to 2,500!
Anyone for golf? Whilst many a business deal has been made on the fairways, indoor adventure golf courses are proving an excellent venue for corporate events. We’ve previously delivered a conference at a London indoor golf venue and we’ve seen at first-hand just how positively attendees responded to the quirky setting. Mr Mulligans has two 18-hole courses available. Colleagues can enjoy some friendly competition and then relax with cocktails, it’s a great team-building activity.
