About Venues on The Thames


Looking for that perfect venue on the Thames? Well, here are some inspirational venues with the very best views over the Thames.

At Hire Space, we love to offer venues that you may not be aware of or may not have even considered and riverside venues provide stunning views and super transport links too. Venues located next to the Thames are normally within walking distance of a tube or train station and always close to some spectacular nightlife that will help you transition from day meetings into night time parties too. There's a tonne of different styles of cuisine on offer along the river too with new developments springing up all the time!

Alternatively, why not take to the water with a Thames boat party. Chug up the river on a converted barge, or enjoy the historic splendour of a former warship. There is a different Thames boat hire for almost any budget; just don't forget your life-jacket.
