Central London Venues Hire Guide

Central London (also known as London City Centre) is home to many of England's governmental and corporate buildings, and it is one of the busiest parts of London. It is a popular location for conventions and business conferences alike, as its convenient location and supply of excellent venues suit the need. The district hosts many cultural and governmental buildings, such as the British Museum, the Law Courts, Parliament and the National Ballet – aside from these large-scale public buildings, there are also numerous smaller spaces for hire in Central London.

The most popular spots for event venue hire in the heart of London include:

  • St Martins Lane – A small street that does not get too much thru-traffic, St. Martin's Lane plays host to a few famous theatres, as well as dozens of unique little shops throughout. In addition, St Martins Lane also has several cafes, gift shops, and lounges. Although it is not the most flashy of areas to host an event or gathering, St Martins Street does offer a sense of small-town feel in a big city – and there are several terrific choices when it comes to its venue selection.
  • Victoria Embankment – The Victoria Embankment runs along the north bank of the River Thames; resting on its side is several breathtaking venues available for hire on the riverside. These gorgeous venues do not come cheap, but they are among the best of the best for weddings, shows, and soirees. Victoria Embankment has unique historical importance for the City of London, as in 1878 it became the first street in Britain to be permanently lit by electricity.
  • St James Square – St James Square is a lovely road that circles the absolutely stunning St James Square Garden; there are a few very popular venues of various kinds here. The Neo-Georgian architecture lures your eyes with its prominence and the surrounding gardens give the area a fresh and beautiful look; at the centre of the park rests a statue of William III upon his horse. St James Square is a popular location for both small function rooms and larger wedding venues.

Hiring a venue in the city centre can be costly, but we know how to find the best deals available. Have a look at the average price ranges below:

  • The per person pricing option is a common way you will be charged at venues that provide catering and sometimes an open bar. Most of the venues that charge a per person rate in Central London are wedding reception venues and conference spaces that include catering. The average per person cost in the city centre ranges from £30-£140.
  • A hire fee pricing option is often used if you rent out just the room for your event. Usually, with the hire fee option, you will get a space to do whatever you’d like with – you will have to be in charge of organising your own food and drinks, or hire an outside catering service. The average hire fee in Central London ranges from £300-£4,500.
  • The minimum spend is a standard pricing option that is used at many restaurants, pubs and bars. With the minimum spend cost you must pay at least this minimum amount for food, drinks, and other expenses and the venue itself will come at no extra cost to you. The minimum spend rates in Central London ranges from £350-£3,800 depending on the size and type of space you are using.

Booked Entire Venue at Bianca Road Brew Co
From first message to post-party, Reece and the whole team had been amazing! This is an incredible space, with a team of superstars at the helm. This was for my 30th and we ended up going for their sister space a few units away, but were given the option between which we wanted. It's still as big and has a mezzanine. The communication was fast and consistent, they were so accommodating and the staff were kind, professional, and made my experience there really special and personalised. The space is huge with a well stocked bar, the location is super central and easy to get to (especially that the jubilee line is on the night tube), and for the service and space that you get, hiring this place is a no brainer!

Booked Ground Floor Bar at The Oxford Market
I had the pleasure of hosting my 30th birthday on the ground floor at The Oxford Market last Saturday and it was a perfect evening. The event ran seamlessly and the guests were raving about the beautiful venue (with plenty of space for dancing and socialising), the AMAZING food (far exceeded expectations), the great location (guests were so surprised it was so close to Oxford Circus station yet tucked away on its own quiet street), and the fabulous cocktails (such a cool touch). The team were wonderful to work with - Craig was so helpful with all of the planning in the lead up to the event, always on hand to answer questions and ensure best use of the space. Sergio - the bar manager on the night - was super accommodating and made sure the service was impeccable, everything ran smoothly and that the night was a success. Sham on the door was also really lovely and friendly. All the team together helped to make this a brilliant and unforgettable night. Thanks so much, team!

Booked Basement Bar at Juno Rooms
Had a surprise party for my sisters 30th birthday at this venue. The venue itself is aesthetically pleasing and accommodates a good amount of guests - we were a party of around 80. We were allowed to decorate the venue which was a plus and also bring our own DJ. We ordered a range of food options which the guests enjoyed and were delicious. The communication with the venue organisers was good and they were present at the venue incase we needed any assistance. The bar staff were friendly and informative making our guests feel welcomed. Lastly the birthday girl was highly impressed! this is a beautiful venue with lovely hosts and I would definitely recommend!

Booked The Decantery at Six Storeys on Soho
Absolutely fantastic. The venue was so fun and the perfect place to celebrate my 30th. All my guests commented on what a great venue it was. The service was brilliant - so attentive, making every effort to accommodate us and welcome everyone. And the events team were incredibly helpful in the run up thinking of every detail. What’s more I think the venue hire, food and Prosecco box is amazing value to money. Every penny was worth it. I was so delighted with the whole experience - a memorable night in large part to the great venue. Thank you!

Booked The Lounge at Six Storeys on Soho
Six Storeys were very professional and helpful from my very first enquiry, which gave me a lot of confidence that we would be looked after well. The location is fantastic and The Decantery room was just perfect for our party- decorated beautifully, and complete with light up dance floor. The package we opted for also included a case of Prosecco and 10 food boards, which I thought was a great deal. All round, this was the perfect venue for us, and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Would highly recommend to others.

Booked Private Cocktail Lounge at Patch St Paul's
This venue was absolutely perfect for our engagement party for 50 people. Great central London location, minimum spend much more reasonable than other venues, allowed to decorate and play our own music and the team at Patch worked hard to make sure everything ran smoothly- we can’t thank them enough! Would definitely recommend. Food was amazing also!

Booked The Vault at Revolution Leadenhall
Everyone commented on the venue and how perfect it was for our event. The layout with the comfy chairs and the central table worked very well for us, its a great room that conjured up a convivial atmosphere. Even though it was a bit of a humid evening the air con worked a treat. We were looked after very well before the event by Sophie and our dedicated waiter on the night was very helpful too. I was able to play video material from my laptop to the TV screens mounted on the wall which was appreciated by those attending. Very good Prosecco kept nicely chilled in the ice buckets. Very pleased with our choice of venue, would highly recommend.
