Looking to host your next event in London?

Being one of the oldest and most historical cities in the world, London’s two-thousand year-long history has made the city deeply cosmopolitan and culturally exotic. With thousands of venues available across the city, we understand hosting an event in the Big Smoke can be daunting at first, that’s why we have devised a list of some of London’s most unique venues that are sure to make for an unforgettable event!

Madame Tussauds

Are you looking to host an event with a star-studded guest list, but those A-listers haven’t RSPV’d yet? Why not host an event at London’s Madame Tussauds! 

This award-winning venue is fully adaptable depending on the exact event requirements and is equipped with five themed areas that are sure to get your guests snapping those all-important celeb selfies. The World Stage Ballroom, which can host up to a thousand guests, is Madame Tussauds largest event space, however smaller events can also be accommodated by using removable walls. The novelty of this venue is sure to leave your guests with memories to last a lifetime!

Arcelor Mittal Orbit

If you’re looking to host an event with a stunning view of London, this venue is definitely one to consider! At 262ft above the ground, Arcelor Mittal Orbit boasts a breath-taking 20 mile panoramic view of the city. This flexible venue can accommodate up to 270 guests and has hosted team-building events, seated dinners and parties. Arcelor Mittal Orbit is an elegant establishment with dining options that cater to the most refined tastes, while also featuring an extensive wine list!  

You’d think the view and the food was enough, but there’s more…

Take your event to the next level by giving your guests the option to see London in a way they’ve never seen before as they descend the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide!

Tower Bridge

Obviously one of London’s most iconic landmarks, Tower Bridge makes a stunning and unique venue, featuring three award-winning spaces. At 42 metres above the Thames, the panoramic walkways are ideal for evening cocktail receptions and seated dinners. Spotlighting the glass flooring allows your guests to witness a famous bridge lift from a truly unique viewpoint above the river Thames. 

The Victorian Engine Rooms is a remarkable space that is sure to impress your guests. Featuring the original coal boilers that powered the bridge lift, this space is both unique and historically educational. 

The final space available at Tower Bridge is the North Tower Lounge which offers an intimate location with a truly stunning backdrop. Being the only space at Tower Bridge available for daytime hire, it is perfect for wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships and conferences. 

National History Museum’s Hintze Hall

Now, this space really is one of our favourites – the Hintze Hall at The National history Museum is dramatic and opulent. Your guests enter the space via its grand entrance through Romanesque arches and a beautiful stone staircase and can dance and dine under a 25ft skeleton of a blue whale suspended from the ceiling. 

Other spaces include The Earth Hall, which features an impressive celestial map which makes an elegant backdrop for the museums metal earth sculpture. This space also features ‘Sophie’ – who happens to be the most intact stegosaurus fossil ever found! How is that for impressing guests?

Another notable space in this venue is Darwin’s Centre and Courtyard. More modern and contemporary in comparison to the Hintze and Earth halls, reflective glass and steel struts paired with white limestone flooring and concrete walls provide a luminous space for any event. Guests can also enjoy a peaceful drinks reception in the courtyard. 

This venue is sure to have your guests in awe, whichever space you choose!

Sunborn Yacht Hotel

Another magnificently unique venue comes in the form of the Sunborn Yacht Hotel, offering an extraordinary, one of a kind experience for your guests. Undoubtedly an unforgettable location, the Sunborn Yacht can host a wide range of events that can be easily catered to your specific event needs. By hiring the entire yacht, your guests will undergo an exclusive and unforgettable experience, with access to each event space that can be decorated to your taste. 

The possibilities with this venue are remarkably endless!
