More about Outdoor Party Venues in London

Why are outdoor venues great for parties?

There are plenty of reasons to host your party in an outdoor venue in London! For one, you'll have access to more space than you would indoors. This is ideal if you're expecting a large crowd. Plus, being outdoors can add a touch of excitement and adventure to your event, and you can even make the great outdoors part of your event, for example if you’re hosting a festival style party, or doing activities such as yoga!

Whilst weather can be a topic of contention, an outdoor setting can provide a unique setting that can help to make your summer party more memorable whilst making the most of natural light and glorious sunshine (fingers crossed)! Plus, by choosing somewhere in natural surroundings, your special occasions potentially can be totally free!

How much does it cost to hire an outdoor venue for a party in London?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the cost of hiring a venue for an event in London will vary depending on a number of factors, including the size and location of the venue, the time of year, and the type of event. However, as a general guide, you can expect to pay anywhere from £500 to £10,000 for the hire of an outdoor or garden party venue in London. Of course, if you are planning a large or high-end event, and you have lots of extras, then your costs will be at the upper end of this range.
