GO Business Travel in East London

Business Travel in East London If you find yourself in east London on business you could be pleasantly surprised with the facilities on offer outside the ‘square mile.’

The square mile, or the City (as it is also known), describes London’s inner sanctum, which has traditionally been the business hub of the capital and the country, home to mainly financial businesses and supporting law companies.

However, as London has grown beyond this business and historical centre so too has the number of hotels and venues geared towards the business traveller.

Although the City remains a business centre, London now has an added business district in Canary Wharf [map] . This teenage purpose built area is now established and is home to large companies such as HSBC, Bank of America, KPMG and Chevron Texaco. It is also home to Cabot Hall [map] a conference and entertainment centre nestled amongst a multitude of offices.

Getting to east London from one of the capital’s five airports is probably best done by taxi. Although this is not the cheapest option you will be sure to get to your destination on time with the minimum of hassle.

If you are travelling via the UK train network then you will probably want to head for London Bridge [map] of the capital’s 10 main stations. London Bridge is just three stops, by tube, from the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) which is the main rail network for east London.

In terms of hotels that combine meeting facilities with a place to put your business mind to rest, the Britannia International Hotel [map] may be the most suitable. This four star rated accommodation has its own dedicated conference floor which means delegates can focus on the job at hand without the distraction of everyday hotel hubub. Conference rooms vary in size offering space for groups of five to 100, however for large-scale events the hotel is equipped to host a conference with more than 500 delegates.

Although you do not have to stay at the hotel to use the business facilities, the hotel is located in Canary Wharf and has three restaurants, a bar and gym facilities and over 400 luxury rooms.

The Four Seasons [map] in Canary Wharf is the only five star hotel in the east of London and has all the contemporary elegance you’d expect from this top rated hotel as well as business facilities and conference rooms.

Boasting stunning views across Royal Victoria Dock, the Ramada Hotel and Suites [map], Docklands, offers another alternative. The hotel itself is less than five minutes from the ExCel exhibition centre but also has two meeting rooms of its own.

For business information while you are in London the centrally located City Business Library [map], EC2, is a leading source with specialist collections for the traditional city sectors of taxation, insurance, finance, and investment commodities. They also provide a fee based research service.
