Your health is our priority
At 41 Portland Place, we’ve been closed for business since March.
But when we do re-open, you can trust that your health is our number one priority.
As the home of the Academy of Medical Sciences, you can trust that our venue takes your safety and wellbeing extremely seriously.
All our bathroom taps already have motion sensors installed for a maximum hygiene no-touch handwashing experience. Our cleaning team sterilise shared spaces like the entrance hall throughout the day. We have sanitising hand gels available in every room with every booking, free of charge. Our aim is to seamlessly bring the best hygiene practices to your event, so you and your guests don’t have to worry.
Our catering team under Head Chef Irmantas always work to the highest professional standards! We’ve been hard at work adapting the menu to give you the widest range of menu items at the same time as minimising shared surfaces.
We are also working closely to ensure all our guests will be using 41 Portland Place’s fabulous rooms safely. We know our venue inside out, and are here to help guide you so that your booking includes enough space for everyone.
We also want your booking to be totally stress-free. So we’ve updated our reservations and cancellations policy to help ensure you feel 100% confident. If government advice changes later in the year, and an event you had previously planned is now impossible to hold, we promise to offer you an alternative date free of charge, no faff.
And when you do visit, we’re planning ahead to make sure you can reach us safely.
We have both on and off-street cycle racks available for guests, to help you avoid the tube or the bus. There’s also a large Santander Cycle docking station right outside 41 Portland Place, so you don’t even need your own bike!
And if you are coming into London by train, we’re located an easy 30 minute walk away from both Paddington and King’s Cross stations, and a relaxing 45 minute walk away from London Waterloo station, so you don’t even have to face using the tube once you get here.
Nothing lasts forever, and there’s some experiences Zoom just can’t replace.
So in a couple of months, by the end of the year, or whenever you’re ready to start thinking about coming back together – think of 41 Portland Place as your top location. We’re prepped and ready to help you get planning for 2021 and beyond!
By choosing 41 Portland Place, you’re not only choosing an award-winning team at one of central London’s most beautiful private townhouses.
You’re also supporting the secret heart of medical research, with your events in turn helping the Academy of Medical Sciences improve health for everyone.
