With 2017 fast approaching, our thoughts are turning towards what the New Year will bring, so we took a break from the office to head to Old Billingsgate for Squaremeal Venues & Events Live. Surrounded by stunning views over the River Thames, over 250 top venues and suppliers came together to showcase their latest offerings.

Naturally we spent the day doing the hard work for you, tracking down some of the best venues that London and the South East has to offer – here are some of our top picks:
