Go East: 4 unusual event venues in East London



When planning an event in London, mostly we think of the city with all of it’s majestic historic buildings and the cutting edge design of new contemporary buildings.  Or we may prefer to go to the West End for more creative venues.  However, East London and Canary Wharf in particular is the epicentre of the financial world.  With a wide range of event venues to choose from, you will be sure to find a venue that ticks all of your boxes.

Here are our four favourite venues:

The Crystal

This stunning building in the Royal Victoria Docks was designed to be one of the most sustainable buildings in the world. It is an all electric building and incorporates rainwater harvesting, black water treatment, solar heating and automated building management systems.  There are a number of meeting and conference rooms available for hire, plus the 270 seater state of the art auditorium.
