About this space
Gray’s Inn gardens are known as “The Walks” and were originally laid out in 1608 by the then Treasurer, Sir Francis Bacon. The Walks remain among the largest private gardens in London: five acres of perfectly maintained park entered through a pair of impressive iron gates.
During the summer The Walks are equipped with a graceful and elegant marquee which is hard floored and carpeted throughout. The versatile structure holds endless opportunities for a wide variety of summer events.
The Walks and the marquee offer a distinguished setting for private and corporate parties, wedding receptions, concerts, barbecues and other outdoor events.
The Marquee is available for hire in summer period during June and July. Please get in touch today and let us help you plan the perfect event!

Rules of the space
We recommend the use of our own approved DJ's who are used to working with the Inn's unique spaces. We do welcome clients to bring their own bands and entertainment for their events. There is a restriction on open air amplified music in the Walks, but other types such as a string quartet work very well.
We allow events to run until midnight, when the site should be vacated.
For events finishing later at 11pm or later, staff taxis must be covered.
For events larger than 350 guests, additional security, cloakroom attendant and toilet attendant need to be allocated
