After an incredibly challenging year for the events industry, the collection of London venues is witnessing a steady growth in enquiries from both event planners and prospective new member venues.
Joining the consortium, Westminster Boating Base is a unique, spacious venue with unparalleled views across the Thames, located in the picturesque Pimlico Gardens. The main room, ideal for wedding receptions, dinners and launches, boasts floor to ceiling windows and a full-length balcony extending over the river, ensuring a space filled with natural light and maximising the unmissable views.
The smaller Edgson Room also benefits from a river terrace, this versatile space is perfect for pre-dinner receptions, conference break outs, wedding ceremonies or to dance the night away as it has a built-in lighting rig.
The spacious outdoor Pavilion with wrap-around terraces also offers an ideal setting for receptions and parties. For an added unique benefit of the venue, there is a private pier for unforgettable travel to and from the venue, taking in the sights of the River Thames.
As a registered charity, the venue hire fee directly supports Westminster Boating Base Trust’s charitable activities for disadvantaged young people to aid personal and social development through water-sports. The venue is managed and exclusively catered by acclaimed London venue caterers, The Admirable Crichton.
On the decision to join Westminster Venue Collection, Ruth Lawton-Owen, Managing Director of The Admirable Crichton said: “Joining Westminster Venue Collection was always top of our to do list when we took over the management of Westminster Boating Base. We are delighted to become part of this prestigious collection of venues and very much look forward to working together.”
The Chair of Westminster Venue Collection, Rachel Azzopardi, added: “We are thrilled to be welcoming the idyllic riverside Westminster Boating Base to our collection. As a destination, Westminster offers great variety and it’s so exciting to be adding yet another venue that’s so different from the already unique portfolio we have. After recent challenging times it is encouraging that the demand for venues to become members of consortia is once again growing, and the enthusiasm the Westminster Boating Base team have shown already is a fantastic addition for us.”
