About Altitude London
Housed in the stunningly tall Grade II listed Millbank Tower, Altitude London is a collection of prestigious modern event venues, which have been leading the venue hire market in London for the last decade.
Altitude’s London highlight is Altitude 360 – a breathtaking event space located on the 29th floor of a skyscraper. Boasting gorgeous panoramic views of the entire London skyline, Altitude 360 is a 770 sqm area, which makes a good fit for up to 550 people. Expecting a smaller group? The space can be divided into two parts which can be hired separately, one of them facing Westminster and the second one with a view of the Thames. Pretty impressive, right?.
But wait, there’s more! Skyloft, which covers the entire 28th floor of the building, has a more laid-back feel to it (think exposed brickwork and wooden flooring). This one’s a wedding favourite that will leave your guests talking for months!
Altitude London – what you need to know:
- Situated in central London, Westminster, SW1
- Boasts spectacular panoramic views of London from as high as the 29th floor
- Popular for corporate events, including conferences
- A perfect spot to host a unique wedding in central London

Altitude London Ratings and Reviews
I really wanted to write a little something to acknowledge the fact that not only was Altitude London an amazing venue with jaw dropping views and a lovely sleek feel but the staff at Altitude literally saved our wedding! My husband and I fell in love with the venue when we attended the viewing, the fact that our top table overlooked an amazing view of the River Thames embankment with the main London landmarks behind us as we raised our glasses, was already incredible, however the main star quality of the venue, and the thing that will stay with us forever is the warmth and general loveliness of the staff. My husband and I were bringing over a lot of relatives from Spain and so in order to incorporate our own Spanish touches we decided on a dry hire. We also used an external caterer as we wanted a very specific type of food. When our external caterer let us down catastrophically by arriving after our guests (over 3 hours late), we can genuinely say that Altitude´s staff´s flexibiliy, and quick thinking literally saved our wedding!
We had a lovely experience from the word go! The first person who we dealt with was Aneeza from the Sales team who was lovely and really understood what we wanted, as did Jess who was our next point of contact, then when you go for the ´Dry Hire´option with Altitude they provide you with an Event Manager, ours´ was Sophie and from the onset she was an absolute joy to work with: getting back to us immediately with answers to all of our many questions regarding storage and loading bays and other logists prior to the day itself, setting up a second site visit at short notice because we had to travel, and together with other Altitude London staff members such as Patrick, Sophie and the rest of the staff went far beyond the what you could expect from them, especially on the day before the wedding, when we left all of the stuff and we were running around trying to get everything sorted, they were just fantastic and effecient and they really helped us get on top of it all, all of which was above and beyond the remit of what the were obliged to do. We can genuinely say that rather than going the extra mile for us, they really went the extra 1000 miles for us! Apart from the Event Manager with whom you liaise backwards and forth prior to the event, Altitude also provide all of their customers, (even those who have opted solely the ´Dry Hire´option) with an ´Event Supervisor´ who is on hand, on the day itself, simply to oversee things and to ´supervise´ the event. Our’s was a lovely lady called Tabata. When it became clear to Sophie and Tabata and the rest of the Altitude staff that our caterers were getting later and later and that there was an issue, they all rallied round and made sure that THEY themselves and their staff started putting out all of our welcome drinks, this, of course, not being their task at all, but rather, that of the caterer. Rather than merely supervising, the first time I saw Tabata, our Venue Superviser, I assumed that she was a member of the waiting staff as she was running around serving drinks! Together with the on-the-day wedding coordinators that we had hired to take care of the running order and décor, Sophie and Tabata were also extremelly pro-active and proceeded to plate up and take out the snacks that we had bought for later on in the evening so that our guests would not go hungry in the absense of the planned cannapés. They also contacted their own Altitude Chef, who had just finished working on another Altitude event in the building and was heading home for a family party, and he also stayed on in order to muck in and actually helped the hapless caterer when she did finally arrive and was completely out of her depth in the kitchen. Tabata then continued to help by liaising with the kitchen and helping serve the food when she saw that the caterer’s waitresses were swamped! Had it not been for Altitude, it doesn´t even bear thinking about what our wedding day would have been like! We were already well into the crisis zone, and were it not for the ingenuity and good will of Altitude there would have been no food until that evening! I think that the ultimate testimonial to the fast thinking, on the ball approach and sheer kindness of Altitude London´s staff, is the fact that, thanks to their tireless efforts, even in the thick of that disastrous scenario, our guests had no incling at all of the catering mishap that was taking place! Altitude stepped in and averted disaster so brilliantly that all of our guests actually even commented on the smooth running of the entire day!
We will be forever touched by the sheer humanity and kindheartedness of Altitudes staff! They did not HAVE to do ANY of what they did for us as none of it was there fault, we had opted for a Dry Hire only and the catering was our problem, so as to speak, so what they did is therefore even more exceptional! I cannot recommend them highly enough! Your wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, it is one day and it flies by in an instant, however, after so much preparation, we would have been heartbroken if our guests had been left with no food, and so we will never have enough words to thank Altitude’s staff for what they did for us.
I think that trust is so important when it comes to planning something as special as a wedding and I can very safely say that you can trust Altitude. The Skyloft is absolutely stunning, the backdrops, the illumination, the VIEWS, the modern, classy touches and decor that is not to heavy, it really is the most perfect and romantic, yet still spacious and warm place to hold a wedding reception and we are SO happy that we found it! If we were to do it all over again we would pick Altitude again in a heartbeat. It has now been three weeks since our wedding day and our friends and family are still in awe when they look at photos of or remember the venue, they all say it, they all say that it was just so perfect, how many people can have their caterer not show up until after the guests and still have all of said guests raving about how perfect the venue was an how smoothly everything ran, that, in itself, is pretty miraculous and is down to Altitude.
My husband also wrote this:
We could not be more grateful to Altitude London and their staff for everything they did for us on our wedding day. We initially fell in love with the venue, which is breathtaking, but what we could not have imagined was that the service provided by Altitude's staff would go so far beyond the beauty of the venue itself. Sophie, Jess, Tabata, Aneeza, Patrick, their chef, every single person at Altitude is so devoted to what they do that they did not think twice when it came to going out of their way to help us in a way that far surpassed what we could ever have expected from them. We have no words to describe our appreciation for their outstanding service and help before, during and after our wedding. Now, what really remains in our hearts is not just the breathtaking view and fabulous venue, but the warmth and dedication that we had the luck to experience from the whole team. I did not dislike anything as we owe the Altitude Staff a Debt of Gratitude! REALLY they saved our wedding and had they not jumped in and did things they were in no way obliged to do and gone out of their way to offer the absolutely outstanding and truly wonderful service that they offered us our wedding would have been something totally different! Altitude MADE our wedding!
Very friendly staff from the catering team, our hostess was extremely helpful and nice, food was very good. Our guests were delighted.
Price is pretty high with minimum spent / day
Credit card payment fees
Amazing Venue, fantastic view and amazing on the day staff
Quite Pricey but great for a big event.
The venue was really iconic due to the views of London. Our Event Manager on the run up to the event (Charlotte) was really organised and nothing was too much hassle.
Our Event contact on the day - Gideon - was also great.
We couldn't get into the venue until 8am without paying a high surcharge which I think was really expensive. This was disappointing. The additional 25% charge for anything ordered on the day is also very expensive.
