Small Venues Hire Guide

From cosy private dining rooms and teeny-tiny bars that are perfect for small groups to small wedding venues that are easy to fall in love with, our collection of London’s loveliest small venues for hire is sure to surprise.

We’ve created a rundown of events that go particularly well with small venue hire:

  • Baby shower – for the arrival of your little one, it’s best to plan a celebration in a charming room that’s just the right size for the number of guests you expect. Baby showers in London are usually intimate events for close friends and family, so it makes sense to choose a sweet venue that’s on the little side. Still looking for inspiration? Hire a petite tea room for a pretty afternoon tea or a small room in an acclaimed restaurant for a memorable private dining event

  • Small meeting – when you’re hosting a scaled-down corporate gathering or small team-building activity, it’s more affordable and convenient to hire a small meeting room in central London. Small spaces are also perfect for any type of interview.

  • Wedding proposal – planning to propose to your loved one in a magical place in London? Think the idea of a small private dining room with astonishing views sounds dreamy? With Tagvenue you can find your ideal engagement venue in the blink of an eye.

Like the idea, but still aren’t sure what kind of small venue would suit your event best? These are the most popular kinds of small venues in London:

  • Small halls for hire – if your guest list has less than three digits, it’s better to hire a hall with a smaller capacity – that way you’ll avoid being charged for space you won’t fully use.

  • Bars and pubs for hire – these are splendid for fun get-togethers with your friends or colleagues. Is there anything more blissful than laughing and chatting over a nice cold pint of beer? Here at Tagvenue, we list a range of pint-size pubs, hole-in-the-wall cafes and dinky drinking spaces for small shindigs and low-key gatherings.

  • Tea rooms – a small, dainty space is perfect for creating a relaxing and calm atmosphere. Elegant finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and clotted cream mean it’s time for high tea! What’s more, organizing a tea party in London is a wonderful idea for a small bridal shower.

  • Small pop-up spaces – looking for a space for your teensy pop-up shop, or a hip cafe for a mini art exhibition? London has a host of small venues willing to put on creative events, and Tagvenue is here to help you find them.
