The John Roberts Room

Conferences: Meeting Rooms

Supporting the TS Eliot Theatre, Merton offers a further selection of smaller conference and meeting rooms to suit the differing requirements of any conference.

For those with traditional tastes, the Breakfast Room—capable of holding a boardroom event for up to 18—is ideal. Although its elegant wooden panelling is only a century old, the room itself dates back to the early sixteenth century, when it was built by Warden Richard Fitzjames. In 1643-4 it was used by Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I.

For larger numbers, the air-conditioned Mure Room provides a theatre-style environment to accommodate up to 60 guests. It can also serve as a main seminar room for a larger event incorporating additional meeting rooms.

The Fitzjames Rooms overlook the exquisite Fellow’s Garden and are ideally suited for smaller meetings and conferences.

Merton also provides:

  • Complimentary flip chart pad and pens
  • Audio-visual equipment upon request
  • Syndicate rooms for up to 20 delegates
  • Complimentary conference office for larger events
  • Complimentary wifi throughout
