'MEET Beyond London' has been created by Tourism South East to showcase all of the exciting venues around South East England that are not only tourist attractions but also offer unique, and often state of the art meeting and event facilities without a London price tag allowing your budget to stretch further.. 

MEET Beyond London aims to be an easy to navigate resource for event and conference buyers/planners, PA's, associations and secretaries allowing you to browse venues around South East England and make direct contact with suppliers.

If you have a certain size venue in mind  browse by type of venue, if you've got a theme in mind, check out our themed pages , or if location is key, take a look at oudestination pages to see what's available in each county. Many of the counties also have free venue finding services available , so take the pressure off and let them do it for you!


Why choose a venue beyond London?

The variety of venues across South East England mean there is something to suite all types of events and we are sure you'll find something different! Why not treat your delegates to a trip on the world’s first vertical cable car -  the British Airways i360, in Brighton - in between presentations; or hold your next gala dinner overlooking Henry VIII’s Tudor Warship, the Mary Rose at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard; or ensure a ‘wow’ factor backdrop for your next corporate summer BBQ by holding it within the grounds of the historic Leeds Castle in Kent.
