Welcome to

London 2012 reminded the world of the excitement that our capital city can generate. And the spotlight continues to shine on London in 2013 transformed London’s landscape and the world united in celebration as we welcomed all to the Greatest Show on Earth. The Games accelerated infrastructure investment across the capital, which has resulted in a wider choice of world-class attractions and facilities for leisure visitors and event planners alike.

The 250-acre former Olympic Park will reopen to the public in July 2013, with a new weekend festival of cycling, RideLondon, taking place 3-4 August. The former athletes’ village will be transformed into the East Village neighbourhood, providing residents with a space equivalent to the size of St James’s Park, boasting green spaces, shops and community facilities.

London showed the world the warm welcome that awaits; the city has never been easier to navigate and explore, and is open for business. The billions of pounds invested in the city has seen the construction of more than 10,000 additional hotel rooms, a rejuvenated Underground transport network, which celebrates 150 years in 2013, and the upcoming transformation of Olympic Games venues to huge arenas perfect for conferences and events.

The Copper Box (or the ‘Box that Rocked’, as it was affectionately dubbed during the Olympics) will reopen in 2013 to become the third-largest arena in London, with 7,500 seats. It will host concerts, exhibitions, conferences and sporting events and is expected to attract 400,000 visitors a year. And upcoming for event planners in 2014, the Orbit Tower and now world-famous Aquatics Centre will become available for meetings and events.

So much to excite and enjoy

Elsewhere, King’s Cross station has doubled its capacity, following the opening of a new £550 million western concourse, while in the vibrant Shoreditch area in east London, Tech City has grown into a business destination that can now compete with San Francisco’s Silicon Valley for innovation and investment.

In 2012 the Olympic and Paralympic Games

There is always something new to see and do in London, whether your client is a first-time visitor or has been here a hundred times. There are 300 museums and galleries (more than 100 of which offer free entry), 150 theatres, more than 10,000 bars and clubs, and four World Heritage Sites (the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Maritime Greenwich and the Houses of Parliament). Iconic new landmarks and events spaces include the ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower and The Shard. The latter is one of the tallest completed buildings in Europe and will become home to a 202-deluxe-room Shangri-La Hotel in 2013. A viewing platform will also open in February, providing visitors with a multi-sensory experience and views across the capital.

World-class cultural life London is recognised as a world-leading centre of talent and creativity, with an ever-changing variety of events, plus vibrant fashion and shopping, nightlife and cultural scenes. Some of the world’s brightest minds can be found in London, making it easier to book leading speakers, offer quality content and attract more delegates. Centres of excellence associated with pioneers such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Michael Faraday, Alexander Fleming and Sir Isaac Newton are regularly used today as reception and meeting venues, including the Royal Society of Medicine and Savoy Place (the Institution of Engineering and Technology). London is easily accessible (more than 50 countries are within a three-hour flight), with options to suit any budget, from free attractions to luxury shopping, and an unrivalled choice of meeting venues and expert event services, making it the ideal destination for leisure and business visitors. Hosting the Greatest Show on Earth – the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games – has showcased the city’s extensive leisure and event capabilities. In 2013, London will build on its reputation as a world-class visitor, business and event destination. Use this London Official Guide 2013 to help your clients enjoy the best of London’s accommodation, dining, attractions and shopping, and to plan successful and memorable events in the capital. London & Partners is waiting to hear from you so

we can help turn your client’s visit into memories that will last a lifetime.

What’s new in London?

The roar of the Olympic cheer will reverberate around London for years to come. London impressed the world with its winning mix of city-wide celebrations, successful event delivery, star attractions, classy hotels and well-run public transport

The city has long been a world-class business

and leisure destination offering exceptional choice and value for money. Now, this multicultural capital that’s easy to visit and meet in and impossible to forget, also offers the memories of Olympic achievements against a backdrop of iconic landmarks, myriad new hotels, great shopping, culinary expertise and the warmest of welcomes. The Games prompted a number of major development and construction projects – from shopping centres to hotels to a major improvement of the Underground transport network – allowing future London visitors to reap the benefits. This new legacy and infrastructure now enhances the visitor experience, particularly in the redevelopment of the east of the city. New icons are now part of the skyline, like the

Shard at London Bridge, including restaurants,

offices, apartments and a new Shangri-La Hotel opening in 2013. The 2012 Olympic venue the Copper Box will reopen in July 2013 as the third-largest arena in London, with 7,500 seats. And London will build on the success of the 2012 Olympic Games by continuing to showcase world-class events.

Hotels

Shopping

In 2012, the number of available hotel rooms in the capital exceeded 102,000. Openings of iconic properties have included the W Hotel, the luxury Bulgari in Knightsbridge and Aloft London ExCeL , which have all added to the cityscape.

Westfield Stratford City attracted 5.5 million shoppers during the Olympics. The largest urban shopping centre in Europe boasts 300 shops, featuring well-known high-street brands such as Miss Sixty, Calvin Klein and John Lewis, plus more than 50 places to dine. Westfield Stratford City also has a 17-screen Vue Cinema and a 65,000 sq ft Aspers casino, with views overlooking the Olympic Park. Meanwhile Westfield London in Shepherd’s Bush, in the west of the city, continues to be a popular and stylish shopping experience.

Directly opposite Wembley Stadium, the 361-room Hilton London Wembley opened its doors in July 2012. Visitors can enjoy an afternoon tea with stunning views at the Sky Bar & Roof Terrace, while event planners have a 700-capacity space only 20 minutes from central London. In September 2012, D&D London opened its debut 80-room South Place Hotel, in Moorgate, offering two restaurants and three bars, including a rooftop terrace and a ‘secret’ garden atrium on the first floor. Also, a second InterContinental London opened in Westminster, offering 254 rooms plus meeting facilities, to complement its existing property on Park Lane.

Recent additions to the city’s 40,000 shops are found in One New Change shopping centre, opposite St Paul’s Cathedral. High-street store openings across the capital include Juicy Couture on Regent Street, Ted Baker on Brompton Road, Jo Malone on King Street and Coast on Oxford Street.

Knightsbridge received another luxury hotel in November as The Wellesley opened its 36-suite property, and Café Royal reopened as a hotel in December 2012.

ever-changing retail experience with new shop openings throughout the year. London is eagerly anticipating developments such as Park House – the largest retail development planned for Oxford Street in over 40 years.

Spanish hotel operator Sol Meliá has taken a foothold in London with its Sir Norman Foster-designed ME London, on the site of the former BBC Marconi building in Aldwych. This landmark property has a rooftop terrace bar with 180-degree views of London as well as a screening room and events space.

London’s wealth of markets are also great to explore for a bargain. Camden, Notting Hill and Spitalfields are always worth a visit, with a wide range of new stalls and offerings; Greenwich Market is superb for fashion and original collectables; and to see one of the prettiest streets in London, head to the flower market on Columbia Road on a Sunday morning.

Events, entertainment and attractions The year ahead will be awash with anniversary events, providing exceptional choice for entertaining clients or planning a visit. 2013 marks a special milestone for several British icons including Queen Elizabeth II – London will celebrate once again, as 2 June marks 60 years since the Queen’s formal coronation in 1953 at the age of just 26. The ‘greatest flower show on earth’ at Chelsea celebrates its centenary from 21 to 25 May, while October marks 50 years since the National Theatre Company opened at the Old Vic theatre.

2013 – RideLondon, for amateur, club and world elite cyclists. There will be a family fun ride around London’s iconic landmarks, and a 100-mile road race for 20,000 amateur and professional cyclists beginning at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and following much of the 2012 Games cycle road race route.

Saunders runs throughout the year at the Piccadilly Theatre, while at the London Palladium in June, the musical of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will have its world premiere.

Museums and galleries

A Jack The Ripper guided walking tour will be a popular choice throughout 2013 as it has been 125 years since this infamous serial killer stalked the alleyways of east London.

London’s eclectic portfolio of museums and galleries always has something to offer the visitor looking to while away a few hours or the incentive group in search of cultural stimulation.

The Shard, will open its viewing platform,

Making a welcome return in July will be the Imperial War Museum, which has undergone a transformation that will allow it to display larger, more significant collections. The first exhibition to coincide with the museum’s reopening will be Horrible Histories: Spies.

The View from The Shard, in 2013. Visitors will have exhilarating 360-degree views for 40 miles across London.

Venture into a tiger’s lair at ZSL London Zoo’s new flagship exhibit, Tiger Territory, which

opens in April. Visitors will be immersed in an unforgettable sensory experience as they get up close to the animals.

Key sporting dates for the diary include 21 April for the Virgin London Marathon and 25 May for the UEFA Champions League Final at Wembley Stadium. An exciting new series of events will take place on the weekend of 3 and 4 August

The Royal Academy is celebrating the career of Edouard Manet from 26 January to 14 April. Manet: Portraying Life will feature more than 50 paintings and a selection of pastels. Meanwhile, Roy Lichtenstein at the Tate Modern will be the first full-scale retrospective of this artist in over 20 years, running from 21 February to 27 May. Over at Tate Britain, a reappraisal of Lowry for

a new audience will take place with Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, from 25 June to 20 October. The National Gallery will explore Viennese portraiture during the Austro-Hungarian Empire from May until November, but before then the gallery will showcase one of the most talented artists of late 16th-century Italy, Federico Barocci. Barocci: Brilliance and Grace will open on 27 February and include work never before seen outside Italy.

Transport An investment of £20 billion has upgraded the London Underground system, making it one of the safest and most efficient city-centre transport systems in the world. An £80 million investment to improve the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) network has been spent on line extensions, new stations and 55 new railcars to boost capacity. Stratford, the main gateway station to the Olympic Park, also received investment to boost its capacity. Today, 10 different rail routes serve this part of east London, including the new high-speed train from St Pancras International (a seven minute journey time), making it one of the most connected parts of the capital. Also in East London, London’s first cable car

Emirates Air Line opened in 2012, linking

North Greenwich and Royal Victoria, while offering amazing views.

Arriving in London is simple. Gatwick Express runs four trains an hour to and from Victoria station, the journey time is 30 minutes. (clockwise from top left): Regent Street shopping, ME London, Westfield Stratford City, The National Gallery

Meeting venues

Games legacy

Event planners have an unrivalled choice of meeting and hospitality venues that range from traditionally British to cosmopolitan, sustainably aware and futuristic.

The Oyster card is London’s travel swipe ‘smartcard’ giving groups and leisure visitors access to the city’s Underground, bus, river bus, Overground and DLR networks, and National Rail Services, at the cheapest fares.

London boasts some of the most beautiful historic buildings in the world, many available to hold events in. Imagine introducing your group to world-famous icons such as the Royal Albert Hall, Tate Modern, St Paul’s Cathedral and the British Museum.

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games showcased the capital to a global audience and cemented London’s place in history as a world-class Olympic host city that’s attractive to visit and easy to meet in.

Currently, London Underground has 63 step-free stations. Most recently, all trains on the Victoria line have been replaced and new trains have been introduced on the Metropolitan line. These include features such as improved audio and visual customer information, more multipurpose areas for wheelchairs, luggage and pushchairs, plus air-conditioning. By 2018, with the completion of Crossrail, journey times across London will be dramatically cut. It will take just six minutes to travel to Liverpool Street from the business district of Canary Wharf; journeys to Farringdon will take eight minutes, and 39 minutes to Heathrow airport. Cycling around London is a great way to reduce

transport costs while providing a sustainable and unique mode of transport for visitors. There are so many cycling routes to choose from, lots of which have been recently upgraded, or take a cycling tour.

London’s 2,000 years of constantly changing history informs and enlivens the present, while the addition of state-of-the-art facilities and modern venues offers all that event planners require. Traditional architecture and awe-inspiring landmarks, such as Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, sit alongside innovative building design and 21st-century attractions, such as 30 St Mary Axe (fondly referred to as ‘the Gherkin’) and the EDF Energy London Eye. Ultramodern and stylish spaces include The O2 entertainment complex, the Design Museum, the SEA LIFE London Aquarium and Wembley Stadium. London also has its own International Convention Centre. The ICC London ExCeL offers a 5,000seat auditorium and 17 waterfront meeting rooms with a choice of nearby hotels and excellent transport links. The choice for reception space has also been enhanced in the past two years, with the completion of a £20 million redevelopment of the Museum of London’s lower galleries and new premises for the London Film Museum in Covent Garden, following a £3.5 million refurbishment.

Around the Olympic Stadium, London has gained 250 acres of new parkland, the largest public artwork in the UK, a new multi-use arena, an Aquatics Centre and London Velopark, plus a new neighbourhood with a new E20 postcode, comprising 2,818 homes. By 2016, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will host up to 2,000 events each year. The southern end will have a real focus on sport and entertainment and include areas such as a 2,000 sq m event lawn. In total, there’s potential for spaces of up to 60,000 capacity across the park. These include the 3,500-seat Aquatics Centre, which can be transformed into a dry venue courtesy of rising floors that reduce the depth of water in the pool. The Orbit Tower next to the stadium will host up to 300 people at a time on its viewing platforms. Come and explore London in 2013. Your clients will experience the vibrant energy of this city, which continues to excite, surprise and exceed all expectations.

Useful information

Here’s practical information for visiting London, plus some useful points of contact. For further information, go to visitlondon.com

General info For all you need to know, go to visitlondon.com or call +44 (0)870 1 566 366

Money

Britain’s currency is the pound sterling (£). There are ATMs throughout London and major credit cards are accepted. You can change traveller’s cheques or foreign currency at foreign exchange offices around London. Those from outside the EU can enjoy tax-free shopping – see page 107.

Opening hours

Shops are usually open Mon-Sat 10.00-18.00 and Sun 10.00-16.00 or 12.00-18.00, with late-night shopping on Thu until 20.00. Visitor attractions are typically open daily from 10.00-18.00, though most close for a couple of days over Christmas. For bank holiday dates, see visitlondon.com

Visas

Citizens of the EU do not need a visa to enter Britain. If you’re from any other country, find out about visa requirements before you travel. See ukvisas.gov.uk

Tipping

It is normal to leave a tip of 10 per cent for good service in restaurants, but first check whether a service charge has been added to the bill. Taxi drivers may also expect a tip.

Telecoms

The minimum amount for a call at a public payphone is usually 60p, but some take phonecards, credit cards or euros. Internet access is available at many hotels, internet cafes and phone booths.

Health

Some medicines are available over the counter at pharmacists – Boots is the biggest chain. For medical advice, call NHS Direct: +44 (0)845 4647 or visit nhsdirect.nhs.uk

Reciprocal arrangements with the UK allow residents of some countries to receive free medical treatment. For emergency treatment go to the Accident and Emergency department of a hospital.

14 l o n d o n a n d p a r t n e r s . c o m

Emergencies

As in all major cities, visitors should be aware of their personal safety. To avoid pick-pocketing, keep bags closed and never leave them unattended. For serious emergencies, call police, ambulance or fire brigade on 999 or 112.

Tax reclamation

Many companies specialise in the reclaim of international Valued Added Tax (VAT) for people travelling abroad for business or leisure. Save money by reclaiming up to 20 per cent on all business expenses and/or tax-free shopping. For more information, see the Shopping services/Tax refunds listings in this guide (page 107). Our Commercial Partner BRAL is an accounting services specialist and can advise you as to whether you are entitled to reclaim VAT (after the initial consultation, a fee may apply). Contact [email protected] com for more information. Further information on the tax implications of international visits to the UK is available at hmrc.gov.uk.

TfL also has a network of Travel Information Centres in stations throughout the city at King’s Cross, Euston, Piccadilly Circus, Heathrow Airport, Victoria and Liverpool Street. These are great points of contact for visitors who need to plan their onward journeys. For locations, see visitlondon.com/welcome

Available in 19 languages, Journey Planner is a useful tool that tells you the best routes to and from specific locations, by rail, Tube, bus or on foot. See tfl.gov.uk/journeyplanner For further information on London’s attractions, and to plan your own itineraries online, go to visitlondon.com/explorer

Underground

There are 11 colour-coded Tube lines. Most operate from 05.00 to 00.30 Mon-Sat, and from 07.30 to 23.30 on Sun. It’s cheaper and less crowded to avoid the rush hour and travel after 09.30 on weekdays. The network is divided into nine zones with different fare structures. Before your journey always check whether there are any planned engineering works, especially at weekends. Call +44 (0)843 222 1234. tfl.gov.uk/tube

Buses

Some routes are especially good for sightseeing, such as 8 and 11, and services 9 and 15 use heritage Routemasters (old-style red double deckers) during the day. Most bus services operate from 05.00 to 00.30 daily, with many routes operating 24-hour services. Tickets must be purchased before boarding a bus in central London. They are available from ticket machines at bus stops and cost £2.30; visitors may find it easier and cheaper to use an Oyster card at £1.35 per bus journey. tfl.gov.uk/buses

For full details of flight times and fares, visit tfl.gov.uk/emiratesairline

Taxis

London’s famous black cabs offer a safe, reliable door-to-door service. Taxis can be hailed on the street when the yellow taxi light is on and at designated taxi ranks. Fares are regulated, and all drivers and vehicles are licensed by Transport for London. All taxis are fitted with a wheelchair ramp and many have other accessibility features so ask the driver if you need to use these. All taxis and minicabs carry assistance dogs at no extra cost. tfl.gov.uk/pco

Minicabs

All minicabs must be booked with a licensed company by telephone, email or in person at the companies’ office. Unlike taxis, minicabs cannot be hailed on the street and drivers must not approach passengers directly. Unbooked minicabs are illegal, dangerous and uninsured. When using a minicab remember to always book with a licensed company, ask the driver to confirm your name and destination, sit in the back and carry a mobile phone. To book a minicab, visit tfl.gov.uk/findaride or text CAB to 60835 and the numbers for two local TfL licensed minicab companies will be sent to your mobile phone. tfl.gov.uk/cabwise

Chauffeurs and limousines

To find licensed companies that provide a chauffeur or limousine service, visit tfl.gov.uk/findaride

Congestion Charge

If your clients are driving in central London Mon-Fri 07.00 to 18.00 (except public holidays), they will need to pay the Congestion Charge. The charge is £10 a day if paid in advance or on the day of travel or £12 if paid by midnight the following day. If you register your vehicle for CC Auto Pay you will only pay £9 a day (a £10 per vehicle registration charge applies) and you won’t have to remember to pay the charge. Payment of the charge or registration for CC Auto Pay can be made online at tfl.gov.uk/cc or by calling 0845 900 1234, or if calling from abroad, +44 (0)20 7649 9122. tfl.gov.uk/cc

Tickets to travel

Single tickets are available at ticket machines; however, it’s almost always cheaper to get an Oyster card and pay as you go. Your clients can also purchase single tickets and Travelcards in advance at tfl.gov.uk/visitorshop

Oyster cards Oyster is London’s travel smartcard and is the easiest and cheapest way to pay to travel around London, whether your clients are using Tube, bus, tram, DLR, London Overground, Emirates Air Line or National Rail services. Ticket types Oyster can store season tickets (Travelcards and Bus & Tram Passes) as well as pay-asyou-go credit for single journeys. Cards are reusable. When a Travelcard or Bus & Tram Pass expires, or the pay-as-you-go credit is getting low, your clients can add another season ticket or top up their credit at over 4,000 outlets in London. With pay-as-yougo, your clients can travel as many times as they like in a day and the daily price cap means that they will never pay more than the price of a Day Travelcard. Where to buy Your clients can save time by getting an Oyster card before they arrive in London at visitlondon.com/oyster or get one when they arrive from Tube or selected National Rail stations. To pre-purchase Oyster cards for groups of more than 50 delegates, contact London & Partners at [email protected] Please allow at least two months between request and delegates arriving in London. Using Oyster To ensure they pay the correct fare on Tube, DLR, London Overground and National Rail services, your clients must always touch in on the yellow card reader at the start of their journey and touch out at the end. On buses and trams they only need to touch in at the start. For further information about Oyster, including fares and using Oyster on River Services, Emirates Air Line and National Rail, go to tfl.gov.uk/tickets

Green London

The most environmentally friendly way to travel around the city is on foot or by bike. In the past few years, millions of pounds have been invested in cycling in the city. Barclays Cycle Hire is the easy way to cycle in central London. Just walk up to a docking station and hire a bike using your credit or debit card. There is a small access fee to hire bikes, and you’ll pay a usage charge for how long you keep the bike – your first half hour is free. Find out more at tfl.gov.uk/barclayscyclehire

Walking is also a great way to see London. Walking between neighbouring central London Underground stations can be quicker than taking the Tube! It’s also a good idea to offset the carbon emissions created by a flight here. For more ideas on travelling green, go to visitlondon.com/green

Using this Guide Get the most out of the 2013 London Guide listings, to create a truly successful trip for your client or a memorable event for any occasion At London & Partners we have more than 1,200 Partners who work with us to make your clients’ experience of London unique and inspiring.

Quality assurance and star ratings

Green Tourism for London scheme

This guide gives you full directory listings for our London leisure and business tourism Partners.

Look for the star rating in the Hotels & Accommodation section of this guide – this is the official mark of quality, awarded to accommodation by VisitEngland and the AA.

Green Tourism for London is an independently audited green accreditation scheme for London’s tourism businesses.

We have listed them here in eight colour-coded categories:

1. Hotels & Other Accommodation Hotels (includes information on meeting room capacities) Other accommodation: B&Bs & guest accommodation, Apartments & self-catering, Campus & hostels, Accommodation agencies and Caravans & campsites

2. Meeting Venues (includes information on meeting room capacities, plus venues that are also Exhibition Centres)

3. Attractions & Sightseeing 4. Restaurants, Bars, Pubs & Clubs (includes information on meeting room capacities)

5. Shopping 6. Entertainment & Leisure 7. Tourism Services 8. Transport

Stars are awarded following annual assessments by trained, impartial assessors. Annual visits are made and, in the case of hotels and guest accommodation, this involves a ‘mystery shop’ overnight stay at least every other year to thoroughly check out the service, hospitality, food and cleanliness, as well as the standard and comfort of the accommodation. All participating establishments are awarded between one and five stars. The more stars, the higher the quality and range of services and facilities provided. Some properties, eg hotel chains such as Travelodge, have been assessed to ensure they meet minimum standards of cleanliness and maintenance, but are not scored for quality, so no star ratings are awarded. Some properties were awaiting a quality assessment grading at the time of going to print. Gold and Silver awards VisitEngland recognises the top scoring properties at all star ratings by awarding Silver and Gold awards. These are for B&Bs, hotels, self-catering accommodation and serviced apartments that are the ‘best of the best’. For full details of VisitEngland’s assessment schemes, see visitengland.com/ee

For business tourism Partners (hotels, venues and services), you can find a list of newly joined partners since publication of this Guide at londonandpartners.com/cvb/addendum

• If you are looking for an event venue, you can

talk to one of our experts – contact our Event Solutions team (see page 12 for contact details) or visit our online venue finding service at londonandpartners.com/cvb/ venuefinder

• If you are looking to plan a trip for your leisure

clients, you can talk to our Travel Trade team (see page 12 for contact details) or visit the Travel Trade website for more information and ideas at londonandpartners.com/travel-trade

Accessibility information Full details of hotels offering accessible rooms suitable for wheelchair users travelling independently can be found at visitlondon.com/access and inclusivelondon.com Hotels rated as accessible will have been thoroughly assessed by Direct Enquiries Ltd against relevant criteria and are committed to accessibility. Please note, however, that other establishments may also have disabled access but may not have sought a formal assessment. If your clients have additional needs or specific requirements, we strongly recommend that you ensure these can be met by the chosen establishment before you confirm your client’s booking. For useful contacts regarding Accessibility see page 14.

20 l o n d o n a n d p a r t n e r s . c o m

The awards, which are only made after businesses receive a visit from an independent assessor/adviser, recognise businesses that are operating in a sustainable manner, as well as actively promoting public transport, local cultural activities and London’s open spaces. The scheme is owned and run by Green Business UK and is part of the successful national Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). For more details on the green credentials of London businesses in this scheme and the awards they have earned, please see green-business.co.uk

For more information on the Green Tourism for London scheme: T: +44 (0)1738 632 162 E: [email protected] green-business.co.uk

Most entries contain a map reference to help you locate the venue (see maps on page 123). Some entries contain facility symbols – see Key to symbols on facing page.

The scheme has three main aims: to help businesses improve their resource and energy management, to improve business efficiency and to help visitors assess the true green credentials of businesses before booking, by giving companies a Bronze, Silver or Gold award.

Seating layouts

Theatre style

There are several ways in which a room may be set up for a meeting – the most usual being for delegates to be seated theatre-style. Other room styles include hollow square, boardroom, U-shape or schoolroom/classroom style. Banquet-style would be used for dinners, banquets or lunches with round tables for 8, 10 or 12 people, with or without a top table, or at a top table with sprigs. For a buffet/ reception, numbers would correspond with those given for theatre-style seating.

In this guide’s listings for Hotels, Meeting Venues and Restaurants, you can see a summary of the meeting room space available: • Capacity of largest meeting room • Total number of meeting rooms • Total number of bedrooms (for Hotels)

The Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme The broad theme of a visitor attraction can range from pure fun to high culture. It can include historic houses, castles, farm attractions, country parks, museums and theme parks. When looking for places to visit, VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme (VAQAS) can help. VAQAS is a national scheme, and all English attractions are able to take part. The scheme offers a quality assessment on all areas of the attraction that impact on the quality of the visitor experience. The assessment is an annual visit at any time when the attraction is open to the public, by an experienced quality assurance assessor. The assessor will ‘experience’ all aspects of the attractions, from initial phone enquiries to departure. They will sample all facilities and activities, such as guided tours, rides, or film shows, as well as catering, retail and toilet facilities. Meeting the VAQAS standard can be achieved by all well-run attractions. All attractions that meet the standard receive the accreditation of ‘Quality Assured Visitor Attraction’.
