What kind of events can I hold at venues with great views in London?
You could host all sorts of events in a venue with an incredible view in London. Some events that come to mind are summer parties, Christmas parties, conferences, meetings and drinks receptions. A lot goes into choosing the perfect venue for your event, but if you're looking for a breathtaking view, our selection of London venues with a view should be at the top of your list.
Depending on the type of event you’re organising, you may find it easier to choose a dry hire venue, where you can bring in your own suppliers and create a completely bespoke experience. Or, you may wish for all the suppliers to be already in-house at the venue you choose, meaning you simply choose from the options laid out to you, making it a simpler and often less stressful experience. Check out our guide to dry hire vs wet hire for more insight.
How much does it cost to hire out a venue with a view for an event in London?
The cost of hiring a venue with a view in London will completely depend on the size and location of the venue, as well as the time of year. For example, a venue with a great view of the river Thames will be more expensive to hire during the summer months when tourist numbers are high. It’s a good idea to discuss your budget with the venue and work out how much you have to spend on extras such as branding, theming, catering etc so you can factor in the cost of hiring the venue. You’ll also need to consider the day of the week, number of guests, and the nature of the event.

Planning an event with a jawdropping view in London
Here are a few tips to help you plan an unforgettable event at a venue with a view in London:
- Choose the right location: London is a large city with many different areas to explore. When choosing a venue with a view, consider the type of event you are hosting and the location that will best suit your needs. For example, if you are hosting a corporate event, you may want to consider a venue in the city centre with easy access for your guests and to impress them with stunning views of famous landmarks such as Big Ben or the London Eye.
- Consider the cost: Hiring a venue with a view can be costly, so it is important to consider your budget when making your decision. Keep in mind that the cost of the venue will vary depending on the size and location of the property. In general, larger venues with more impressive views will be more expensive than smaller ones.
- Weather: The weather in London can be unpredictable, so it is important to consider the time of year when choosing a venue with a view. If you are planning an outdoor event, make sure to choose a venue with a backup indoor space in case of rain.
- Food and drink: Do you want a bbq for your rooftop summer party? Or bowl food, a buffet, or food stations? Or maybe even a sit down dinner for a more corporate event such as an awards ceremony or conference? Whatever vibe you want to go for, make sure you factor in any dietary requirements and work with your caterers to create the perfect menu.
- Theming and entertainment: An event with a jaw dropping view deserves a great theme! Consider your decor and how you want the event to look and feel. Then add some entertainment too, to really make the event stand out and leave your guests with a great lasting impression. Check out our range of suppliers to add an element of fun to your event.
