One of the main reasons people choose to host their parties in Richmond is the lovely scenery. Most Richmond venues offer views of the River Thames or one of the many parks. There are plenty of trendy, upmarket pubs and wine bars located on the riverside in Water Lane, Hill Street and Red Lion Street which can get very lively and festive in the evenings.
With such beautiful surroundings, Richmond is popular for outdoor parties where guests can enjoy the parks or views of the Thames. There are also many pubs and bars located around Richmond Park if you wish to keep the party going into the evening. It is a rather affluent area, so expect to find many upmarket restaurant venues with facilities for dinners, hen dos, engagement parties and birthday dinner celebrations.
Last but not least, Richmond is also a sought-after location for summer weddings. There are many hotel venues available for reception dinners and other formal types of parties.
Most party venues in Richmond work on a minimum spend basis. This usually allows you to use the space either for the full day or a specific amount of time. As long as you spend the minimum amount on drinks and meals, there won’t be any separate charge for the venue.
Minimum spend venues in Richmond upon Thames can range anywhere from £150 up to £12,000, depending on the size and duration of your party. You can hire a space with package deals, which are usually priced between £40 and £200 per person. These packages tend to include food and drinks on top of the costs of using the venue. Some party venues in the area also work on straight hire fees. They start at around £300 per session and usually reach up to £8,400 per day. (All data from Tagvenue.)

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!
