A hotel venue steeped in history.
When you are planning any event in either your personal or business life then I can guess that you would prefer a venue that has some “atmosphere” rather than a very modern building. If you are looking for a conference venue in Kent then I certainly recommend that you consider a hotel in Bromley that has the most amazing gardens and is steeped in history…
In 1801 the existing building was constructed by Baron Farnborough. The Baron was known as the “King’s Spectacles” for his influence on the Regency Kings George IV and William IV. The Regency Court descended on Bromley Hill a number of times including the Prime Ministers of the age William Pitt the Younger and the Duke of Wellington.
A collector and patron of the Arts, published writer and artist Baron Farnborough was a founder of the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Institution of British Architects and the British Museum. When King George IV decided to remodel Windsor Castle the Baron even prepared the brief. The Baron’s Wife Amelia lane was also an artist and the designer of the Italianate Gardens including the two large clay urns which can be seen in the garden today.
After the passing of Baron Farnborough the Estate was eventually broken up and developed as housing. The House was converted into a Hotel in 1931 by Leon Frenkel, a successful businessman.
Alternatively of course you may be looking for the perfect romantic wedding venue in Kent and after attending a friend’s wedding here last month I can only say that this could be the hotel for you. With two acres of the most beautiful landscaped gardens and a choice of five…yes five banqueting suites, like my friend you will be hard pushed to decide upon which to choose for your reception and ceremony.
Just make a call and book an appointment with the extremely helpful wedding co-coordinator and you dream wedding will effortlessly all come together.
