FAQs about Riverside Venues in London

How much does it cost to hire a riverside venue in London?

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.)

What are the most popular locations for hiring a riverside venue in London?

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.

What kind of riverside venues can I find in London?

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.

Loved the location, the food, drinks, staff all very helpful and nice! They accommodated to our needs for all our special day! They even allowed our music to continue on the 9th floor after midnight. Loved the staff and how helpful they were in sorting out issues. Thank you!

Booked Whole space at The Artist's Loft in Shoreditch
We had an amazing shooting experience at this venue! The apartment exceeded our expectations, being even more elegant and spacious than depicted in the pictures. Its ideal location offers a peaceful environment and abundant natural light. The directions provided were clear, and communication throughout the process was outstanding. Without a doubt, I would love to shoot at this venue again and highly recommend it as a prime shooting location!
Booked Private Cocktail Lounge at Patch St Paul's
Amazing service from start to finish! The event manager were really pleasant and answered all of my queries and concerns. The space was STUNNING!! We had a party of 15 and the space was extremely cosy and intimate. The venue managers were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had our own bar staff who really went the extra mile to ensure we had a great night. Cannot wait to visit again!

Booked The Terrace at Doggett's Coat and Badge
I booked the venue for my husband's belayed 50th birthday party. Just managed to catch the sunset with some fantastic views of London. There was enough room for the guests to mill about and have a great time. The option to hire the boardroom as a Godsend as we had children at our party, who spent most of their time playing and socialising there. Food was absolutely delicious. We had Florin and Sasha behind the bar and we found them to be very helpful and efficient. Would definitely recommend and book again. Fantastic venue!
Linda R.
Booked Cambridge Room Library at In and Out (Naval & Military) Club
I had to make a last minute booking literally days out from my event and got an immediate response from their wonderful staff. We had a private room (the Canning Room) that had beautiful decor and atmosphere. To top it off the location is right in the beating heart of London. Divine!
