The Top 5 Gallery Event Spaces In London

London's art galleries are hubs of culture and style, and they make the ideal setting for a function, product launch or party, complete with art, nibbles, and wine - what's not to love?

Ready to dig in? Here, Hire Space brings you five of our favourite London art galleries for your next event!

1. Bankside Gallery

Button Bankside Gallery

Bankside Gallery stands out as an exceptional gallery space, offering a blend of accessibility and versatility for all kinds of events. Situated by the Thames, the gallery provides an inspiring and vibrant environment right in the heart of the city, with all the city's top cultural spots a stone's throw away.

The spacious and well-lit interiors of the gallery are ideal for showcasing a diverse array of artworks, from paintings and sculptures to multimedia installations.

2. Gallery Different

Button Gallery Different

Gallery Different is based in the heart of Fitzrovia and is a contemporary fine art gallery exhibiting painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography and mixed media from British and International artists. With 2,000 square feet of exhibition space it's a great venue for a launch event, private party or corporate reception.

The venue is split over two levels with plenty of natural light flooding through the arched windows. With a capacity of 200+ and the option of dry hire or fully catered, it's a versatile space if you're looking for something a little 'different'.

3. October Gallery

Button October Gallery

This striking venue in Central London has three unique spaces available for hire.

Housed within an impressive three-storey Victorian building, the October Gallery boasts a gallery, courtyard and kitchen on the ground floor, a theatre showroom on the second floor and the resplendent Club Room for intimate gatherings and conferences.

Fine art works, fine spaces and fine company - we'll deliver on the first two, you can take care of the rest.

4. National Portrait Gallery

National Portrait Gallery

There's not much we need to say about this venue that the accompanying pictures don't already - this is a venue built for the big occasion.

Utilising three floors of prime gallery space, this world-renowned venue can cater for up to 1,000 people and its dedicated, expert events team are always on-hand to ensure that your evening runs like Swiss clockwork.

If you don't quite know that many people but would still like to take advantage of the magnificent facilities available, why not hire a set space within the building? With options including the prestigious Lerner and Victorian Galleries, as well as the Portrait Restaurant (featuring views of Whitehall and the London Eye), the hardest part will be picking which one to go with. Whichever way you go, you can't go wrong with any of the spaces available at this splendid venue.

5. Fitzroy Gallery

Fitzroy Gallery

This 1st floor space in a beautiful Georgian townhouse designed by Robert Adams offers two spacious and versatile rooms with large Georgian sash windows overlooking Fitzroy square.
