Queen’s Eyot is a secluded four acre island on the Thames, a few miles upstream from Windsor. The island is accessed by its own private ferry so it is a perfect and unusual venue for corporate hire. The island has been owned by Eton College since 1923, and has a beautiful clubhouse built in a classical style from cedar and pine, decorated throughout with memorabilia from the College’s illustrious rowing history.
The word Eyot (pronounced ‘eight’) is old English and means ‘a small island’ and is used almost exclusively to describe islands on the Thames. The clubhouse is surrounded by extensive, well tended lawns and mature trees and has views of passing boats and wildlife on the river. Queen’s Eyot has the winning combination of an unusual, secluded venue, excellent catering, a varied wine selection and professional, friendly staff.
It is also possible to include a private group tour of Eton College when booking the island. For example, guests could arrive by coach at Eton College, have a tour of the College buildings, grounds and town and then embark on a steamer for the remainder of the day’s activities in the seclusion of Queen’s Eyot.
On a day delegate package the island, clubhouse and all facilities will be exclusively yours for the day. Queen’s Eyot is a secluded, private and conveniently located venue close to London with easy transport links and a special and unique character.
Since the island can only be reached by boat, it is ideal for board meetings and discreet conferences with no distractions. There is excellent overnight accommodation at nearby luxury and standard hotels. The stylishly refurbished clubhouse can accommodate up to 50 delegates (160 with the addition of a marquee). Our four acres of grounds are ideal for various types of team building or fun activities suitable for conference intervals or ice breakers.
