Garden Party Venues Hire Guide

Is there any better way to enjoy the English summer than with a gorgeous outdoor celebration? The warm weather coupled with good food, drink and friends in gardens of all shapes and sizes is a great experience for kids, adults, and families alike. Whether you’re planning a birthday celebration, a classic afternoon party or a team-building activity, there are some things to consider when browsing private gardens for hire in London:

Your budget. To provide for a great party not only for your guests but also for yourself, make sure the venue you’re hiring and everything that you’re planning for your event fits within your budget. Some venues offer special package deals or operate on a minimum-spend basis, so you’re sure to find just what you need for your event.

Menu options. A garden party goes hand in hand with fresh fruit, refreshing drinks, and light snacks. Before you hire your venue, check what food options are available for your event. Make sure it can be adjusted to fit your guests’ dietary needs. If the venue doesn’t offer in-house catering and you need to hire an external provider, ask the venue manager whether they have any preferred suppliers that they work with regularly which can give you a discount for your event.

Ease of accessibility. As beautiful and enchanting as the garden you chose may be, remember about the people you’re inviting. Are there any elderly guests or ones with disabilities? Or maybe parents with strollers? Walking on uneven ground or accessing a rooftop garden may come as an obstacle too big for them to attend your party. So before you make your final booking check what is the access to the venue.

Time of the event. With the always-too-short English summers you want to make the most of the heat and sun, but scheduling your event during the hottest part of the day may not be the best idea. Try to set it up when the sun won’t be so strong to your guests. If you can’t move the event, provide shade, and cold, refreshing drinks for your guests to cool down with.

Lighting. Light is key for when you plan your event to carry on into the evening. You want a “laid back party” atmosphere, not a “survival in the jungle” one (unless that’s what you’re going for!). See if you can add paper lanterns, or fairy string lights to elevate the atmosphere of the party as well as add the extra light.

What is included in the hire of the venue. Check what furniture or other garden party rentals, like linen or umbrellas, are included in the venue hire. If you’re planning on playing music during your event check the venue’s policy on that as well, and what equipment is available for you to use. If the venue doesn’t provide any of the things mentioned make sure you can bring your own.

Back up plan for rain. Planning an event ahead of time has one disadvantage: you can’t schedule the weather. So prepare a backup for what you’re going to do in case it rains on the day of your garden party. Ask the venue whether they will have space for you to move in or if they can provide umbrellas to hide under them.

The type of event. Depending on the kind of event you’re holding, you will look for different types of venues. A wedding would usually require a larger space and perhaps a dancing area. For a kids’ birthday party you would look for a family-friendly spot. A corporate party place should probably have a bar area as well. With Tagvenue’s smart search engine, finding the right venue for your event should not be a problem, but if you’re still struggling to find your perfect one look at some of our suggestions:

Booked Garden at Freud Museum London
Fransisco was very helpful before and during our event. He explained everything very clearly to me and our event was fantastic. The whole venue (including the museum itself) is available to explore which was a great feature for our guests. We were allowed to arrive slightly early to set up which was helpful. Our garden party was a great success!

Booked Whole Venue at The Chelsea Pensioner
What a great team. Damian couldn’t have made the process of planning the party easier. Then on the day, the bar staff were fantastic. Friendly and helpful, several guests made a point of telling me how lovely they had been. The space is great, enjoyed the pool table, darts, and courtyard garden. Then after a few refreshments the queue for the karaoke began to form.... Great night, thanks to all the team.
