I have held my events at The Mermaid for the last 9 years and have no plans to change this for the future.
The location is perfect with a choice of underground stations close by, mainline rail station at Blackfriars, a national car park and a choice of hotels of varying star ratings.
Working with the operations team at The Mermaid is like having an extended team of my own. They now know all of my ‘oddities’ and are an absolute pleasure to work with. If ever any changes need to be made to my original plans, they come prepared with a choice of options and I always come away happy with the final results!
Knowing that you have the support and assistance of such a well-managed and good team around you, certainly reduces the stress in running events.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Mermaid to other possible clients.
