A unique and flexible events venue in the heart of London
Choosing the right venue can add real value to your conference or event. Of course, you can expect a range of flexible and comfortable rooms in our Central London venue with up to date AV facilities and professional staff but the opportunity to visit an iconic building, located in the heart of Bloomsbury, London with its history of academic and creative excellence can be an attraction in itself.

20 Bedford Way is a Bloomsbury venue that welcomes events, meetings and performances throughout the year. The building is light and spacious and the rooms functional and simple – the perfect back drop for any event. A range of 35 meeting and function rooms are housed within the IOE’s flagship building, including the 930 seater single tier lecture theatre, the Logan Hall. This controversial grade 2* listed building, opened in 1977, was designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and is one of the finest examples of “Brutalist” architecture in the UK.

Bloomsbury London ParksPart of the Bloomsbury Set!

Historic Bloomsbury is London’s academic heart land, a district of Georgian architecture, beautiful garden squares and world famous educational institutions like the University of London and Senate House library. Home over the years to artists and writers such as Virginia Woolf, J.M Barrie and the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, the area boasts some of London’s oldest and most charming streets and offers a range of fascinating independent shops, book sellers, cafes and pubs as well as cultural attractions from the world famous British Museum through to specialist collections like the Petrie and Foundling Museums.


20 Bedford Way’s Bloomsbury location is one of its chief attractions. Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras railway stations are 10-15 minutes walk (or a short tube, taxi or bus ride) away, connecting it effortlessly with major towns and cities across the UK or even, via Euro Star with Continental Europe.
