Venues with a theme: Planes, Trains & Automobiles

When you’re booking a conference, awayday, team-building exercise or any corporate event, you need to consider the venue and location.

You need to think about where it’s situated and ease of access for your delegates, it has to have all of the facilities you require, and most of all, you need to make sure it’s memorable and unique.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the more interesting venues around the UK and more specifically, ones that take inspiration from planes, trains, and automobiles.
