I had not heard previously of De Morgan House Conference Centre in London but it is located on Russell Square in Bloomsbury which is a very popular ‘corporate’ district of London with a good range of conference and meeting spaces as well as a selection of reasonably priced hotels, or at least reasonable by London standards. So I thought I would go take a look.
De Morgan House is home to the London Mathematical Society and it is a Grade II-listed house located on Russell Square itself overlooking the Square at the front with its own private gardens to the rear. It is ideally located for day meetings in terms of accessibility - a two minute walk to Russell Square tube station and not much further to Holborn tube. Euston and Kings Cross St Pancras are within a ten minute walk.
Conference facilities include four contemporary meeting rooms plus a catering area and the garden. The Hardy Room is the largest seating up to 40 delegates classroom with plenty of natural daylight and views over the gardens. The Cayley Room, Burnside Room and Sylvester Room will seat up to 18, 12 and 10 delegates classroom style respectively. The garden is suitable for reception for up to 70 guests. Meeting rooms are equipped with a flip chart and complimentary wi-fi. There is a full range of av equipment available to hire.
The facilities are available during the day, in the evening and over the weekend and the room hire rates and day delegate rates are very competitive.
De Morgan House Conference Centre struck me an excellent venue, well run with friendly staff.
