Here’s what to consider before choosing a venue in London:
Start from setting your budget – Having a set budget is crucial for
you to decide about any other aspects of the event. Need to cut
down on costs? Try altering the event date – hosting your function
on an off-peak day or at an off-peak time will save you a bundle.

slightly off the beaten track. Our collection of spaces contains

Have a couple of different dates in mind – The more dates you
consider, the more chances you’ll have to book just the perfect
London venue for your event. Remember that the most sought-after
spaces in London book out months, or sometimes even years in
Create a guest list – So, how many attendees are you expecting?
Setting the number of guests early in advance will make it easier
for you to decide on the final budget. It also determines the
capacity of the venue you’re going to need. No matter if you’re
organising an event for 15, 50 or 500 people, we’ve got the right
space for you – our collections of consists of London venues for
private hire in all shapes and sizes.
Decide on a seating layout – A couple of cabaret-style roundtables
or a large boardroom table for the entire group? If you’re not
sure, our article about seating arrangements for London venues is
sure to come in handy.
Consider the accessibility – Remember to check the venue’s
transport links, as well as the nearest tube and bus stations. Make
sure there are enough parking spaces if your guests will be
arriving by car. Expecting attendees arriving via plane? You don’t
want them to get lost or stuck in a traffic jam – don’t forget to
note down whether they’re landing at the City Airport, Heathrow,
Gatwick, Stansted or Luton and check whether the event venue of
your choice is easy to reach from their arrival airport. Last but
not least, if some of your attendees are going to need disabled
access, double check if the event venue of your choice has all the
facilities to cater to their requirements.
Decide on the mood of your event – A small, laid-back birthday
party at a local pub, an elegant business gala, a quirky pop-up
happening – what tone should your event have? Set your objectives
about the ambience and we’ll help you find a London venue that
strikes all the right chords.
Pick a location that suits the mood – A funky bar in Camden Town
for a crazy 21st birthday party or a cute tea room in Kensington
for a baby shower? No matter what you’re planning, we know a venue
in London that will make the perfect fit.
Make a list of all the features and services you’re going to need –
A/V equipment, whiteboards, flipcharts... It’s always better to
have it all noted, so you won’t forget a single item. Wondering how
to find a venue that has all you need? Our smart search filters
make it easier and faster than ever. Last but not least, make sure
you’ve got all the services (e.g. external caterers, photographers,
DJs etc.) covered.
Arrange a site visit – If you’re based in London and it’s possible
for you, then it’s always better to see the venue in person before
your event takes place. Prepare a list of questions you might need
to ask and if you’re considering other spaces, be honest about it –
this may help you get an even better deal!
Find out if there any other events taking place at the same time in
a venue of choice – You don’t want a noisy event on the other side
of the wall to interrupt your function. Venue managers in London
usually understand the issue and probably will let you know if
that’s the case, but it’s always better to double check.
