Kensington Meetings & Events

A meetings and events package to make your day

Thistle Kensington Gardens is brilliantly located away from busy city centre but not off the beaten track. So we're a great choice for all kinds of events, including business meetings, conferences, product launches and private functions such as wedding receptions. Day delegate conference rates start at just £45.

Our special location and ambience also lends itself well to celebrations, including christenings, birthdays and anniversaries.

Having Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park next door is also a big asset. It's not just the wonderful park views. The green space is perfect for corporate team building activities or relaxation between seminar sessions.

Our largest event facility is the Park & Porchester Room. It's a flexible space that can be configured theatre-style, boardroom-style, in a u-shape or reception-style for banquets and buffets. Plus there's an optional stage for cabaret or other entertainment. It can also be divided into two for smaller events or use as a training suite.

For smaller-scale events, there's our additional meeting space. Flooded with natural light through picture windows, it's ideal for private classes, board meetings, training sessions, presentations, interviews and private dining.

All our meeting rooms are equipped with air-conditioning plus free, fast WiFi. We can also provide modern AV equipment, including a state-of-the-art LCD projector with 100-inch display screen. Our great-value catering options range from light refreshments to sit-down and buffet menus.

Whatever kind of event you're planning, you can also rely on professional help with planning to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our friendly, expert Meetings and Events team are there for pre-event advice and on-the-day support.
