the venue

De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms

Dating back to 1775, the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms​ have long been an important event venue, and was once home to the original Freemasons’ Tavern before becoming a hotel in 1909.

Since then, the venue has hosted some of the world‘s leading politicians, royalty and celebrities with its grand Georgian architecture and art-deco interiors offering 37 exceptional spaces for a wide range of conferences, exhibitions, meetings, training and weddings.


Getting there and away

The venue is located at 61 – 65 Great Queen Street , London WC2B 5DA

The closest tube stations are Covent Garden (Piccadilly line) and Holborn on the Central line, both within easy walking distance. London Euston, Kings Cross, and St Pancras International stations are under a 30-minute walk or a short taxi ride away. 

All of London’s remaining mainline stations are easily reached by the underground network.
