Lower Ground Two

Brassey Room

About the Brassey Room

Modern in style and located on the lower ground 2 floor, this is the largest single room on this floor. The layout of the room is flexible and ideal to be used as a boardroom (up to 20 people), workshop session, training or breakout room in conjunction with a large conference. This can be used as a day meeting where delegates can use Brasserie One for their lunch break or room service style catering can also be provided. The room can also be hired out on an hourly rate basis.

The room is very close to 6 other similar rooms on the same floor including the Bailey and Bruce White rooms.

The room is named after Thomas Brassey who was responsible for building much of the world's railways in the 19th century. As well as railway engineering, he oversaw the building of part of the London sewerage system, still in operation today, and was a major shareholder in Brunel's The Great Eastern, the only ship large enough at the time to lay the first transatlantic telegraph cable across the North Atlantic, in 1864.
