Not true there - there are plenty of conference rooms and halls within
the mansion, and the resteraunt / bar facilities. The problem lies with
the management seemingly indifferent to actually making any money from
hiring out the facilities, except to the odd wedding.

(I wonder if the cinema with the vintage equipment in is available too?
Classic computer movies on classic equipment... :)

The Science Museum presumably have conference halls and the like for
hire, but again being in London it's likely to be expensive...
