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!

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.
