If you like, you can even hire a boat for an unforgettable cruise along the Thames. Just relax and soak up the sun while Tagvenue finds the perfect riverside venue for your next special event.
The answer is: It depends. There are so many factors to consider, like the capacity of the space and what you need from the venue. If you're just looking for a small venue for an intimate gathering, we have options that cost as little as £200-£500 per session, but if you want something more elaborate—say an indoor or outdoor space with access to patio furniture and a bar—expect to pay closer to £3,000-£5,000+ per session. (All data from Tagvenue.)
Let's start with the obvious: Southbank. It's one of the most popular districts in London—and it has some of the most impressive views of the River Thames. If you want something extravagant and flashy, consider hiring a venue in Covent Garden. This district is home to some of the most beautiful and ornate buildings in London with views of the Thames, which means you can be surrounded by a wealth of history and culture while enjoying the beautiful views of riverside London. If you're planning an event around Southwark Bridge, consider hiring a venue in Bankside. It's close to the Thames and has some of the best riverside venues with everything from indoor and outdoor spaces to beautiful rooftop terraces overlooking London's most iconic landmarks.
The Thames River is home to many restaurants where you can enjoy a meal while looking out over the water—or even while taking a boat out into the river! You may also find plenty of venues at the Regent's Canal. Here, you can take in some beautiful architecture and hire some of the most spacious large venues a few steps away from St. Pancras and King’s Cross.
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!
