In London the summer never seems long enough, so it’s best to enjoy the warm days while you can. The city offers various opportunities for outdoor venue hire. Here are some of our suggestions:
Garden venue hire – An English garden is a style well known all around the world. Such a charming setting is the perfect space for afternoon teas, drinks receptions and all kinds of summer parties.
Rooftop terrace – London has one of the most recognised skylines in the world. Wouldn’t it be lovely to sit back with a tasty Pimm’s cocktail and enjoy the view? With #tagvenue finding a venue for your marvellous rooftop party is easy. Some venues also feature a fantastic outdoor balcony space.
Al fresco dining – Fresh air boosts your appetite and sharpens your senses. When the weather’s good, organise a private dining event in an outdoor venue. It will make the entire experience more memorable. Bon appétit!
Things to consider when hiring an outdoor venue for your event:
Ease of accessibility for the elderly or disabled
Time of the event (try to hold your event after the hottest part of the day so the sun won’t be so strong for your guests)
Lighting (this is key for events that carry on into the evening)
Here at Tagvenue we’ve rounded up some of London’s best outdoor venues, from local beer gardens and quirky cafes, to quiet riverside spots and the hottest rooftop bars and spaces. So let us do the legwork and help you find the perfect outdoor venue for your next event – you can just relax and soak up the sun.
Outdoor Venues in London FAQ
What types of great outdoor venues can you find in London?
London has many charming outdoor venues for you to discover, including secret gardens, terraces with beautiful views and boat venues on the Thames. It’s up to you to choose a spot to match your event and consequently create an amazing atmosphere. Take a look at a few of our most recommended venues:
Can I hire an outdoor venue with an enclosed area in case of rain?
London is known for its unpredictable weather, so many venues have backup options for outdoor spaces in case of sudden weather changes. Many open air spaces either have an option of putting out umbrellas, or indoor spaces where they can reseat you, however, make sure to discuss this with the venue manager before booking your chosen venue.
Can I hire an outdoor venue for free?
Free venue hire is another way of referring to minimum spend venues. That is a pricing option which allows you to only commit to a certain amount for you and your guests to spend on food and drinks, while not having to pay a hire fee for the space itself.
