Outdoor Venues in London

You would think that a large city such as London would have limited venues with outdoor spaces, but London has some absolute gems perfect for al fresco corporate summer parties, drinks receptions, company picnics and team away days.  

Seasonal marquees set in beautiful gardens, squares or parks, to contemporary buildings with roof-top terraces offering stunning views of the Thames or City of London skyline – the capital offers some of the best outdoor venues for all event types.

Outdoor venues guide and tips

The bustling city of London is the perfect place to enjoy warm hazy summer days. Choose from a range of alfresco spaces to relax and enjoy the sunshine.

We have a portfolio of venues that range from garden venues, rooftop terraces and private dining spots. 

What sort of outdoor venues can you hire in London?

Bursting with iconic, historic and rooftops with amazing views of the skyline and river, there are so many outdoor spots to choose from. Here's a couple from our portfolio...

 

The River Terrace at Somerset House

Set against the backdrop of Somerset House’s iconic 18th century façade with sweeping views across the Thames, the River Terrace at Somerset Housse is one of our most exclusive spaces in London.

The perfect location for up to 500 people for a standing reception, The River Terrace offers a glamorous alfresco London setting to entertain your guests. The stunning Seamen’s Hall is included in your hire as a wet weather contingency, with a capacity of up to 200, along with jumbrellas should a British seasonal downpour prevail.

Perfect for summer parties, you can invite your guests to a private barbecue or simply enjoy a drinks reception while the London landmarks light up your event.

 

The Garden Room - Hampton Court Palace

Bright, airy and nestled within its own private walled garden, the Garden Room is an idyllic location for conferences, away days and corporate parties for up to180 guests that require a touch of class.

This self-contained former orangery combines old-world charm with the latest audio-visual technology and excellent Wi-Fi access, making it suitable for even the most sophisticated presentations.

Hire also includes access to the rest of the palace, which your delegates can explore on their own or with one of our knowledgeable guides.

After lunch, your delegates can step through the impressive French windows into the private walled garden, where they can enjoy archery, football and other team-building exercises.

 

The Corinthian Roof Terrace at Kia Oval 

Referred to as the Kia Oval’s “hidden gem”. Sitting right at the top of the JM Finn Stand, this covered area can hold up to an impressive 600 guests on an informal basis. There are spectacular views of the pitch on one side and the impressive London skyline on the other side. There are food service stations and bars on the Corinthian Roof Terrace, making the area perfect for summer parties or post-conference drinks, or watching the sun go down after a large meeting. 

 

WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO CONSIDER FOR OUTDOOR EVENTS?

You can have more people outside than in. The biggest problem with an outdoor event is the weather. Let's face it; even the Met Office isn't 100% sure about what the weather will do on any one day.

The biggest piece of advice Lime Venue Portfolio can offer when booking Outdoor space is to ensure you have a wet weather option up your sleeve. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we will always give you a contingency option. So, if the heavens open and people need to head indoors, you've got peace of mind your event can carry on as planned.
