There is one thing that’s certain about London, and that is its magnificent beer-drinking culture. No matter where you go, you’ll see football fans sipping lager or groups of friends having a pint or two to relax after a long day. As long as you’re not underage or in a bad state, no one will bat an eyelid that you’re sipping beer, even at an unusual time of day. Whereas some used to associate drinking beer with smelly pubs, nowadays the beer drinking culture has evolved and many enjoy drinking in London’s fancy beer gardens!
Why are beer gardens gaining in popularity, and why doesn’t everyone prefer to stick to pubs instead? Well, people visit beer gardens because they offer a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Guests of the beer garden are less likely to be judged, for example, by the way they dress, than in an indoor bar setting. So the difference between beer gardens and bars is the atmosphere. A beer garden is commonly known as a relaxing place for friends to hang out, whereas a bar or pub is a more lively place with loud music and high energy. Of course that’s not to say that beer gardens can’t have great live music or other fab music in the background.
And what about football fans who often like to visit a space and enjoy a game of footie played by their favourite team? Although they might have to do some digging, there are actually plentiful chances to watch football either on a projector screen outdoors (if the space offers such an option), or sometimes there are tvs hung up on walls right by the doors or outside (but shielded from the rain and the sun). Isn’t that just great news? There are absolutely no excuses as to why anyone shouldn’t try out a beer garden. Well, there may be just one - the British weather. But with that, you just have to be up-to-date!
You may have had the opportunity to grab a pint from a beer garden before. In that case, you know exactly what to expect! But if for some reason you are still a newbie, you might like to know a couple of things before going.
Now that you know a bit more about the drinking culture in London and a few fun facts about beer gardens, you may still be wondering about the venue booking process. In that case we welcome you to check out the FAQ section below which will give you some insight on the best ways to rent spaces here at Tagvenue. Let the beer garden hunting begin!
Expect prices to start as low as £10 per person. Despite being increasingly popular for events, these amazing spaces really come at a very good price! So if you’re looking for a space that you don’t have to splurge all your money on, we definitely recommend one of London’s fab beer gardens!
London will surprise you with its amazing selection of venues. Depending on whether you’re looking for a very traditional beer garden (hidden away from the prying eyes with a relaxed outdoor space) or for something that’s a bit of a beer garden/luxury venue mix, you can expect to invite anywhere from 20 to 400 guests. Of course, the latter is usually either a big space outdoors or a venue with indoor and outdoor event spaces.
To choose just one or two seems like an impossible mission. But if we had to recommend a space then it would definitely be the Garden at the Museum of Brands. This gorgeous space just lives and breathes nature, and it’s a total must-go for all beer lovers. It is available only in the evening though, so plan accordingly!
Although you can find locations all over town, we definitely recommend checking out venues which are located near the River Thames. Check out the areas of Waterloo and Westminster for a great beer garden experience! You’ll be sure to feel a bit of fresh air, find yourself in a great location, and maybe even enjoy a nice walk with a lovely view afterwards.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
