In the summer time, gardens and courtyards available for private and corporate hire are hot property and there's the no shortage of choice in central London, the West Ed and the City. On this page of squaremeal.co.uk we've taken the time to compile a list of the top venues with outdoor spaces, all available for private hire.
Whether you're looking for a historic or royal venue with a picturesque lawn garden, or a small and quiet courtyard in central London you'll find what you're looking for here. Alternatively you could just be after a hall or meeting room for a dinner, party or conference and require a outdoor space as a breakout area. There are plenty of those too. Take a look at the livery halls and HQs in the City for example. Or one of the boutique hotels on offer perhaps, which have al fresco spaces that work particularly well for a wedding, for example.
If you're sure you want to hold an open-air event, but a garden or courtyard isn't quite then why not have a look at our balconies, terraces and roof gardens selection. Or if you've got a big group and it is space you're after, then check out our selection of marquees and temporary structures. Al fresco, but with a roof, just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.
