Alexandra Palace

Name a more iconic summer venue than Alexandra Palace, we'll wait! Set in 196 acres of parkland, with terraced barbecue areas, and that view, Ally Pally is the crowning jewel of London's green event spaces. And with on-site activities like boating and pitch-and-putt available, we're prepared to wager the last sausage that a summer party at this venue will have guests feeling royally spoiled!

The Hurlingham Club

With endless manicured grounds overlooking the Thames, the Hurlingham Club is fit for the fanciest of barbecue affairs. Eat, drink, and be merry in the seating area (transported straight from the sunny continent) and luscious lawns, but try not to go overboard on the unlimited drinks package when there's croquet to be played after lunch!

Location: Fulham

Capacity: 1000 dining, 1200 standing

Regent's Conferences and Events

Welcome to Regent's Park's secret sanctuary, Regent's Conferences and Events! This sophisticated venue is a midsummer's dream, with elegant ivy-laced walls and parasols galore, set in a secluded green haven. And with all-inclusive summer barbecue packages and optional team-building sessions in its expansive grounds, there's even more to its manicured lawns than meets the eye!

Location: Baker Street

Capacity: 1200 reception

Shoreditch Gardens

Another walled oasis in the heart of the city, Shoreditch Gardens is a venue that takes hospitality seriously (no surprise there, as the gardens belong to the fascinating Museum of the Home!). Summer parties on the sleek lawns here are infused with fun and food, thanks to the laid-back deck-chair vibe, outdoor games, and, of course, the all-important barbecue centrepiece!

Location: Hoxton

Capacity: 800 buffet

30 Euston Square

There's nothing like a 'cue with a view, and at 30 Euston Square the two go together like burgers and buns. The self-contained top floor rooms open onto the venue's rooftop terrace, allowing space for up to 230 guests to mingle inside and out, enjoying iconic sights and mouth-watering meals. At just 1 minute away from Euston Station, arriving here couldn't be easier, but getting guests to leave might be a struggle!

Location: Euston

Capacity: 230 standing
