Grand Connaught Rooms
61-65 Great Queen Street
Almost 600 people joined the Vice-Chancellor for an unforgettable dining experience at one of London’s finest venues, the Grand Connaught Rooms.
In the early 1900s, the Grand Connaught Rooms became one of the most popular venues in London for prestigious social and corporate events. Since then, the venue has hosted and entertained the world’s leading politicians, royalty, dignitaries and celebrities.
Graduates and their guests dined in the Grand Hall, which features elaborate crystal chandeliers and an intricately decorated ceiling. Having benefited from a £750,000 makeover, the Hall, complete with its impressive baroque columns, will lend a majestic feel to the evening dinner.
