Outdoor venues to hire for every event

At Lime Venue Portfolio, we’re proud to offer a wide range of outdoor venues to hire throughout the UK, with everything from outdoor party venues to conference rooms allowing for outside refreshment breaks. When you hire one of our stunning venues with outdoor hosting space, rest assured that we’ll still deliver on our promise to create an unforgettable event, complete with world-class catering solutions. We’re also committed to keeping your guests safe at all times, which is why all of our event spaces – both in- and outdoors – follow strict Covid-19 measures.

The benefits of hiring an event venue with outdoors space 

Outdoor venues offer an entirely different experience in terms of atmosphere, in addition to arranging your space and choosing a theme. They allow more scope for being imaginative and creative with your planning, not to mention providing attendees with the buzz of doing something a little out of the ordinary!

  • Outdoor venue hire options are ideal for parties and team building activities and offer something different away from the office when it comes to corporate events.  
  • Outdoor venues are also often a lot more flexible than their indoor counterparts, as they essentially present a blank space for you to build your event from the ground up. You can play around with staging, furniture, lighting and different party 'zones' to create the exact atmosphere you're looking for. 
  • Hosting an outdoor event can be done on various budgets, and space can give you more flexibility on numbers, including social distancing, compared with some indoor capacities on rooms.  
  • All of our venues with outdoor space have teams who can recommend the best suppliers for outdoor events.  
  • Being outside in the fresh air is good for us. It helps our immune systems and it also increases our serotonin production, meaning feel-good endorphins are released when we take a few deep breaths of fresh air.

Although our spaces will have different safety processes in place, your experience's quality won't be changed. You can rely on our venues for award-winning catering, cutting-edge AV and expert teams to ensure your training event goes smoothly.

Our portfolio's very nature means that almost every venue we have has outdoor space capacity or the installation of marquees to create added space for the events they host.

What sort of events can an outdoor venue cater to? 

You might be wondering why we're recommending outdoor venues in the UK – but hear us out! Whether you’re looking for an extra-special outdoor party venue or event space for an unmissable exhibition, the UK has some amazing outdoor spaces that are ideal not only in the very few warm months we have each year but throughout.

No two outdoor spaces are the same, and that's what makes them so special. Whether you're planning a street market, film screening or simply a celebration in the sun, embrace the great outdoors. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we've got you covered (literally) as we always have some back up indoor spaces available for your event, just in case.

Do we partner with any outdoor event specialists? 

Yes, we do. We've partnered with Off Limits, an event company specialising in providing an extensive range of outdoor and indoor activities at our venues across the UK. Activities include teamwork challenges, including Crystal quest and Lock Box, but they will work with you to create the perfect activity to meet your event objectives.

At Lime Venue Portfolio, we’re also proud to cater every venue with truly exceptional food solutions to impress every guest. To bring your outdoor event to life, we've partnered with KERB London’s leading street food organisation.

What venues with outdoor space can I hire?

Here at Lime Venue Portfolio, we offer a range of choices for your outdoor event, from the lush green lawns of a racecourse to castle rose gardens and even the deck of a World War II battleship. Our outdoor venues can help to make your wedding, party or celebration completely unique, and to give it a sense of character and personality that your guests will remember.

Many of our venues have outdoor space with adjoining accommodation, in-door meeting space, and various dining options and leisure activities. They are ideal for team building, family fun days, parties, product launches, exhibitions and corporate hospitality.
