We all have these days in life when we want to make sure that it is remembered and talked about. What makes these days remembered is the spirit we create and make no mistake, the physical aspect of the event helps the spirit.
Let’s say you want to book an event venue in London to throw a birthday bash for your partner, or you need a special space for a new product launch which would require a party venue or an outdoor event venue. Depending on your needs, there are a number of event spaces (including outdoor event spaces) to hire in London with the amenities meeting your requirements. All you have to do is do a bit of homework first.
Best All-Round Venues in London
Whether you live in London or not, it’s not completely useless to know about the right spots in this amazing city. If you are trying to plan an event in London and would like to find out which ones are the best venues in town, we prepared a list of establishments for you. Some of these venues are available for dry hire, that way you can make your event exactly the way you want it to be.
Planning an event used to be quite simple when the venues offered features known to everyone and they used to be pretty basic. But we live in a time and age where options for celebrating an occasion are quite a lot. Also, we celebrate different occasions today which vary from a bridal shower to a new book on the shelves. Whether it’s the diamond anniversary of our parents or the big 40th birthday for our best friend, it’s important to find the right place.
When we say the right place, it sounds vague and feels like a blank canvas. However, for special gatherings the details are the secret ingredient which make the event unforgettable. If you’re aiming to host an event (yes, there are many types of events…) please bear in mind that the venue has to be compatible with the character of your organisation.
The location of the venue is obviously important but its size and personality matter more. Service quality is another significant factor. Remember the overlooked issues like transport links and related information about the venue.
Now why don’t you take a look at the places and venues we mention here to get answers to all your questions from cost to hire to accessibility, and all other details.
Kunstraum is a well-equipped space that is highly suited to talks, screenings, film shoots and even exhibitions where daylight events can take place for it is an airy space that has windows across three sides, and skylights built-in to the ceiling.
The space can be blacked out when needed and it is open for public events. But it can easily be transformed into a meeting room if your goal is to do a special event for team building at the workplace. Please note that the venue does not have an alcohol licence.
The Tent is a very unique space and it is very close to Bishopsgate meaning it is also close to central London. The Tent is built with 16 sides to give the impression of a circular indoors design which was actually manufactured in Saudi Arabia. The Tent is the ultimate space for you to host a meeting, workshop or any other gathering you may have planned. Depending on your needs, the venue can be used as a corporate venue because of its special features.
The Games Room provides you with a very private room which has enough space to host 60 people, standing. The venue has a projector with added entertainment options. For instance, let’s imagine you’re planning a special birthday party or private togetherness for a product launch, The Games Room will meet your needs and serve as the perfect venue.
If you know that you require a bit more room then you can fit an additional 25 guests in the next area over. So why would you choose the Games Room?
The main reason for this is because it has a built-in projector and you will also find that it comes with a classic Nintendo 64 console, so you can play all of your favourite games with ease. Outside the room you will see that there is a football table which can be used during corporate parties or birthday parties.

The private bar and a private kitchen are the best parts about this venue which allows you to design your gathering in the way you want. The venue offers a number of attractive packages which you don’t want to overlook for your wedding.
The great thing about these venues is that they are able to cater to numerous price points and you always have the option to book extra add-ons if you want.

Some get-togethers are simple and can take place in public spaces. Getting together in Covent Garden or any other dynamic part of the city is wonderful but sometimes you just need the limited space with a selected number of people to make the most of what you are celebrating.
