We use our platform to bridge the gap between event organisers and venues, allowing organisers to filter their search and contact venues directly to arrange their next training workshop, seminar, party or event.

Under the umbrella of Unique Venues of Great Britain, we operate in city regions to create a collaborative community and provide a website directory to promote distinctive and alternative venues across the UK. It is our mission to promote high-quality event spaces and facilities around the country’s most exceptional and inspirational settings.

We work closely with PAs, event agencies, marketing teams, HR managers and corporate bookers looking for alternative and unusual venues. Using our efficient search tools, organisers can discover the perfect location for their next event, recommended based on event-type, number of attendees, location or style of the event space.

Whilst not part of our organisation, we are pleased to promote Unique Venues of London and Unique Venues of Edinburgh.


Our goals are to:

Provide websites that promote alternative, unusual and unique venues across the country, whilst offering conference and event organisers a simple and efficient method of finding and selecting a venue for their next event.

Offer venues the opportunity to work collaboratively, network with colleagues, benchmark to improve quality and service, and be a stronger voice for our industry.

Identify and attract more business tourism to each of our dedicated regions in the UK, to compliment the marketing activities currently undertaken by local tourism bodies and chambers of commerce, as well as help support the local economy to generate business and increasing turnover for the venues we promote.
