Are you looking for the perfect luxury space for your next big summer event? Then here are some of our favourite London event venues for summer parties in 2018
Five summer party venues for 2018:
1. The Pavilion at the Tower of London
Few event venues in London can compare to the grandeur of the Tower of London, one of the world’s great fortresses. Dating to the 11th century, it was built for the powerful Norman ruler William the Conqueror, and now shares UNESCO World Heritage Site status with Tower Bridge, just moments away.
This venue has an amazing marquee with space for up to 1,200 guests and a large lawn with a 5-metre covered recess in case it rains. It’s just a short walk from Tower Hill (Circle, District) and Tower Gateway DLR station.
2. Winchester House
If you’re seeking a quieter alternative to central London, book a summer party at Winchester House in leafy Putney, west London. This charming Georgian house has a beautiful lawn overlooking the Thames and an elegant interior with enough space to house up to 150 standing guests. However, when the weather’s good, you can also make full use of the lawn for extra space.
The easiest way to get here is to take a train to Putney railway station or Putney Bridge/East Putney tube stations, all of which are about 5-10 minutes away by foot.
3. The Garden Room at Syon Park
Another picturesque location in west London, the Garden Room at Syon Park is a purpose-built venue overlooked by historic Syon House, one of London’s finest homes. Featuring 50 acres of beautiful grounds and a sophisticated Garden Room with space for up to 600 guests, it’s a spectacular setting for any summer party.
The Garden Room at Syon Park is just 10 miles from central London, yet it feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It can be reached by taking the District Line to Gunnersbury tube station, then bus 237 or 267 to Brentlea Gate bus stop.
4. Old Billingsgate
Celebrate your summer party at the historic Old Billingsgate, one of London’s great riverside landmarks. Did you know that this building housed the world’s largest fish market in the 19th century? Today, it’s one of our biggest event venues in London, with three stunning spaces the Trendy underground Vaults, the contemporary Gallery, and The Grand Hall. These can be hired separately or for the same event and have a combined standing capacity of 2,400. Plus, you can use Old Billingsgate’s spacious riverside terrace, which has superb views of London Bridge, the Shard and Tower Bridge.
Old Billingsgate is a short walk from Monument (Circle, District) and Tower Hill (Circle, District).
5. City Central at the HAC
City Central at the HAC is a wonderful green space that’s near the heart of the city and can be hired for fantastic summer events from late June to late July. The venue is next to the impressive 18th-century Armoury House, which is the home of the Honourable Artillery Company, one of the world’s oldest military organisations.
This luxury space can accommodate up to 2,400 guests for standing receptions, so it’s also well suited to high-impact events. It’s just a short walk from Old Street (Northern), Moorgate (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Northern, rail) and Liverpool Street (Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, rail).
