The Top 5 Warehouses For Hire In London

When throwing an event in London, you can go in big. In one of its unique warehouse spaces you can have a large-scale event in an unparalleled urban setting. Venue expert Laura Richards picks the biggest and best of the bunch for your next exhibition, conference, wedding, party... what warehouses were made for, yeah?

Studio Spaces E1

Yes, it started its life as a warehouse, but Studio Spaces E1 was also formerly a nightclub, and as such is sure to receive rave reviews from guests of any event held here. Its capacious studios have been given a super chic makeover and now Studio Spaces can be washed in light, open and airy, or dressed in darkness for the occasion, with state of the art event equipment helping set the scene either way. Conferences, press days and parties will go down just as well as the house music once did of a weekend at the east London warehouse venue.

Swan Wharf

Creative hub Hackney Wick is awash with cool warehouse venues, so planning a party, event or showcase in the area seems a natural decision for companies with a cool edge. The industrial area may not seem so pretty at first, but in among some ugly ducklings is this swan of a warehouse. Based alongside the canal, Swan Wharf has been lovingly restored to its current shabby chic form. With a bar, courtyard and penthouse all available to hire, as well as its first and second storeys, it's a versatile warehouse space fit for any occasion - so there's simply no chance of ruffling feathers among guests.

Village Underground

Think of Shoreditch and you think of exposed brick walls, graffiti art and railway arches. Enter Village Underground, the famous one-stop shop for Shoreditch culture vultures. The Victorian warehouse often hosts club nights, art installations and inspired entertainment, but it's now also available through Hire Space for blank canvas events of the corporate kind, as well as the creative. Award ceremonies, conferences, product launches, weddings and dinners will all go down a treat in this dramatic, high-impact warehouse setting.

The Vaults

From performances to presentations, receptions to rehearsals, live music to large events, The Vaults at Waterloo can accommodate them all under its eight railway arches. With 30,000 sq ft of bare brick warehouse space to work with, you'll be able to fit any size of party in at The Vaults. Choose to take one tunnel of the venue - each has its own unique characteristics. We particularly like 'the long wet one', which offers up 'charming moisture' as a part of the deal - if that's a bit too boastful for your liking, 'the short wet one' is an option, too.

Oval Space

Oval Space serves up views of Bethnal Green gas works, which is about as 'warehouse' as events get. Whether you're planning a fun, fresh party or something slightly more formal, the venue is geared up for the lot, with the option of catering and a full spec of AV and tech equipment on standby. Given the creative flair found within the area, fashion shows, TV shoots and pop-up events could all happily find a home at Oval Space.

To put it simply, warehouses are where it's at. For any shape and size event, we're here to help. Hire Space can find you a big old industrial space for an event that's out of the ordinary, so drop us a line or stop by the website, won't you?
