10 reasons the Thames Valley beats London for the best events!

  • Cost – The Capital is expensive! Taxis are almost twice the price than in regional towns, and the scenery by the Thames is a lot prettier than the Edgware Road. Drinks, food, rooms and venues all cost more in the capital. Why spend more for less when the Thames Valley is just next door?
  • Traffic – London is notoriously bad. It’s easier to walk or cycle than drive. Sure, you can use public transport, but who likes being crammed into a hot tube train or crowded bus? Why not actually get where you’re going in the Thames Valley rather than sit in a London traffic jam?
  • Full package venues – In London, you get to your venue and walk into the hall that the event is in, and that’s it. If you’re lucky, there’s a balcony overlooking the road below and skyscrapers on all sides. In the Thames Valley, you arrive at a charming manor house with acres of green grass, wildlife and great scenery. Pimm’s anyone?
  • Happiness – People outside of London are happier! Being in London can dampen the mood: the expense, hustle and bustle, and sheer volume of people can make you anxious. Get out of London and feel your spirits lift.
  • Proximity to Heathrow – If you’re hosting international clients or colleagues, proximity to Heathrow is a must. London may be closer, but it takes longer to get to than any of the four counties of the Thames Valley. Your guests or delegates will be at the bar while London-bound visitors are stuck on the Heathrow Express!
  • Fresh air – London is one of the most polluted cities in Europe: not only pleasant and bad for your health. Hosting events outside of London gets you out of the smog and into the fresh country air.
  • Security – whether you’re hosting confidential board meetings or commercially-sensitive conferences, the Thames Valley offers dozens of options for safe, private venues where your privacy and security is guaranteed.
  • Aesthetic – There’s a reason that towns in the Thames Valley are always described as ‘picturesque’ in articles. Why would you want to have an event in a drab grey city when the world of the wonderful Thames Valley awaits you?
  • Nature – Being around nature can decrease feelings of anger, stress, and anxiety, while increasing pleasant feelings and decreasing blood pressure, heart rate, and muscle tension. Coming out of London and into the Thames Valley will make everyone more relaxed at your events.
  • It’s a change – No one likes the same thing over and over again: moving out of London and into the quintessentially English countryside around it can be something new for your delegates to experience, and with so many venues to choose from in the Thames Valley area, you’ll never have to visit the same one twice!
