Dulwich Venues Hire Guide

When organising a wedding, the importance of the venue cannot be denied. It is one of the first things to decide before considering the finer details of the ceremony and reception. Dulwich is an exciting choice for a wedding, both because of the venue options but also for its proximity to London. 

Dulwich Village has retained a strongly rural feel, which is something of a surprise considering how close the area is to London. Divided into east and west, and the village itself Dulwich has pubs, restaurants and enough function rooms to please any small wedding organiser. There are also larger more traditional venues that are sure to please the biggest wedding party. Right in the centre of the village is the Dulwich Picture Gallery, for example, which has several function rooms for hire, offering an exciting choice between traditional and modern.

East Dulwich has a relaxed atmosphere and is home the iconic Dulwich College, a well known venue for wedding hire. The college has several rooms available for hire, which include a Great Hall with a grand staircase and access to a beautiful cloister. Look to East Dulwich also for Lordship Lane, and the trendy cafes, pubs and restaurants there, which might serve a lively small and intimate wedding. West Dulwich and nearby Herne Hill are also very green, and this former Victorian suburb is known for its relaxed feel and picturesque streets. This area has a great restaurant and pub scene that offers several opportunities for wedding hire, such as The Half Moon on Half Moon Lane.
