Meeting Room 1

This airy and bright room has magnificent original features and a 98'' LCD monitor

This is the IPA's largest room. It is airy and bright with magnificent original features so is suitable for large presentations, meetings and receptions.

Accommodate up to 90 guests or 120 for a standing reception.

The size and versatility of Room 1 mean that it can be configured for a breakfast seminar, lunch-time meeting, all-day conference, evening reception, or any combination of these. Several floor-to-ceiling windows provide natural light and a view of the Square, along with an original 19th century fireplace. Wifi internet is included, along with a 98'' LCD monitor, a projector and fully integrated AV system. The Room also includes a generous balcony terrace that faces out onto the imposing Belgrave Square, with its historic architecture and central garden.

If you are planning a large event, or perhaps one with different elements, such as a presentation followed by a drinks reception, we recommend combining the hire of Room 1 and Room 2. A discount is offered when booking both rooms.

The high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony never fail to impress, whatever the occasion. Catering and a cloakroom are located in a neighbouring ante-room.
