Located in Tavistock Square, within the fashionable Bloomsbury area of Central London, BMA House is built on the site of Tavistock House, home to Charles Dickens from 1851 to 1860. The enticing blend of red brick, Corinthian columns and grand archways with ultra-modern high-tech facilities skilfully combine historic elegance with a contemporary twist, making BMA House perfect for all manner of events.
BMA House can host small meetings of four to huge celebrations involving 320 guests and also features a courtyard and garden – delightful outdoor spaces that are rarely found in Central London.
The glorious building provides a stunning backdrop for wedding ceremonies, receptions and other special occasions such as engagements and anniversaries. The House holds a wedding licence for four of its feature rooms: the Great Hall, Snow Room, Paget Room and Prince’s Room, all of which still retain many of their original features.
Located on the first floor, the Great Hall is the flagship room of BMA House. The imperial 28ft high and 115ft long room features palatial floor to ceiling Corinthian columns decorated with painted gold leaf, and its high-level windows provide an abundance of natural daylight.
The room includes an imposing stage, making it ideal for presentations and awards events. Two small balconies overlook the delightful memorial Courtyard – a perfect vantage point for photographers to capture large group shots.
The spacious Snow Room is a is light and airy space retaining many of its original listed features, including 15ft high ceilings and the round-headed windows. Directly adjacent to the Paget Room (with which it can be combined to form the Lutyens Suite), the Snow Room has direct access to the courtyard.
Steeped in tradition, the spectacular Paget Room is a resplendent space brimming with character, including round-headed windows, traditional tiled fireplaces and Spanish mahogany.
The Prince’s Room is perhaps the most elegant space. Intricately painted gold leaf adorns the perimeter of the room, Corinthian columns guard each corner and a dazzling glass chandelier completes the superb interior. With a circular illusion, the room provides a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony. It is accessed by a grand staircase leading onto a marble-floored foyer which is ideal for arrival drinks and refreshments.
The newly available Worcester Room offers plenty of natural daylight and overlooks the magnificent courtyard. The room offers first class AV facilities, including video conferencing and use of four 55” LED screens which form a video wall.
Popular for pre-dinner drinks’ receptions and summer parties, the Garden Room is a superb double-height space with a profusion of natural daylight and sophisticated contemporary decor. Located on the lower ground floor, the Garden Room offers easy access to external areas – available during evenings and weekends.
Always hired in conjunction with an indoor space, the picturesque garden provides a tranquil setting for outdoor events. The garden incorporates an array of physic plants and centres on an oval pond surrounded by a semi-circular terrace – an ideal open space for corporate and private events.
A rare find in central London, the Courtyard provides an opulent setting for outdoor events, including barbecues and summer parties. Like the garden, the courtyard is always hired in conjunction with indoor spaces.
BMA House is conveniently located to Main Line Rail services at Euston and Kings Cross and Russell Square Underground station (Piccadilly line) a short walk away.
