London's best anniversary party venues for hire

If there’s an occasion that deserves to be celebrated properly in life, it’s a milestone wedding anniversary, so we've pulled together a list of extra special venues perfect for a memorable anniversary celebration.

Updated on 16 January 2024

Whether you’re throwing a party for yourself or organising a diamond anniversary party for parents or friends, there is something extra special about anniversary parties. It's like the fun of a wedding celebration without any of the stress!

Large scale anniversary parties require a specific sort of venue. What does the perfect anniversary party venue look like? We reckon top priority depends on the size of the party - you want somewhere special and memorable that will denote the importance of the achievement, but that could be a stylish bar or lounge, or a grand hotel ballroom. The latter are popular for events like these as they tick all the boxes of being flexible, luxurious and big enough to host large scale events. Naturally, that nudges you in the direction of London’s hotels, so we’ve included some of our favourites in this list.

Don’t discount other options though. We’ve included a range of spaces to suit different sizes and styles of party, but they all have one thing in common - they’re sure to leave an impression that will make sure everyone in attendance remembers the day for many years to come. If you can't find quite the right location below then browse our event venues directory for dreamy locations across the UK.

Coya Mayfair

Coya Mayfair

118 Piccadilly, Mayfair , London, W1J 7NW

Impossibly stylish and grand, Coya Mayfair is really two distinct spaces when it comes to event hire: downstairs you have the main dining room, complete with beautiful pisco bar, carved wooden wall panels and colourful foliage. Upstairs, Coya’s gold and marble member’s club is also available for exclusive private hire, and celebrating under the glittering chandelier is sure to live long in the memory.

The Langham Hotel

The Langham Hotel

1C Portland Pl, Marylebone, London, W1B 1JA

The Langham is one of those London venues that you just can’t go wrong with, thanks to exceptional staff, a huge array of gorgeous spaces and fantastic food and drink throughout the hotel. The Grade-II listed Grand Ballroom is ideal for a big anniversary celebration, with room for up to 375 guests among its striking renaissance pillars and gold accented walls.

Sea Containers Events

Sea Containers Events

18 Upper Ground, South Bank, London, SE1 9RQ

Most Londoners have gazed at the giant panoramic windows of Sea Containers on the South Bank from outside, but imagine being inside. The hotel boasts a plethora of large and small spaces for hire, many of which have beautiful views across the Thames. If the weather is good, check out the 14th floor roof terrace for one of London’s most impressive al fresco hire spaces.

The Bloomsbury

The Bloomsbury

16-22 Great Russell Street , Bloomsbury, London, WC1B 3NN

Striking and colourful, The Bloomsbury accommodates all sorts of events but it’s particularly great for celebratory occasions when the bright and cheerful spaces really come into their own. We particularly love the murals, ornate carpeting and crystal chandeliers of the George V Ballroom, which holds up to 250 guests for a big bash.

art’otel London Battersea Power Station

art’otel London Battersea Power Station

1 Electric Boulevard, Battersea, London, SW11 8BJ

Another star hotel with a range of flexible spaces, art’otel London at Battersea Power Station has a trump card that most other venues can’t match - unobstructed, close-up views of the renovated Battersea Power Station. Our favourite spot among many is JOIA Bar, which has jaw dropping views through two-storey panoramic windows, and also boasts a distinctive cocktail menu and aesthetically pleasing art deco styling.

The Orangery at Holland Park

The Orangery at Holland Park

Holland Park , Holland Park, London, W8 6LU

The Orangery at Holland Park sits within the perfect, manicured grounds of Holland Park itself - one of London’s prettiest green spaces. A towering palace of glass and stone, natural light fills the space during the day, and the rest of the venue is fairly blank canvas, so you can set it up however you wish. Outside, The Orangery’s rose garden and outdoor fountains are perfect for photos.

Hotel Café Royal

Hotel Café Royal

10 Air Street, Piccadilly Circus, London, W1B 5AB

An iconic hotel that has hosted everyone from Churchill to Oscar Wilde, Hotel Cafe Royal has loads of options for events of all shapes and sizes. Depending what sort of anniversary bash you’re planning, you could plump for the regency-style Pompadour ballroom, or the plush Oscar Wilde Lounge, which has its own grand piano. The dead central location is also pretty handy, as Hotel Cafe Royal is just a minute’s walk from Piccadilly Circus.

100 Barrington

100 Barrington

100 Barrington Road, Brixton, London, SW9 7JF

Once a furniture factory, 100 Barrington has been tastefully renovated into a sprawling events venue, taking up residence under Brixton’s brick railway arches. Minimal design contributes to the industrial-chic charms of this historic site, and with lots of indoor and outdoor space, it’s perfect for blank-canvas celebration events.

Canopy by Hilton

Canopy by Hilton

15 Minories, Aldgate, London, EC3N 1AX

Canopy by Hilton runs a number of smart event spaces out of this slick east London hotel, but the real showstopper is the Florattica Rooftop Bar on the 11th floor. With panoramic views across the City’s many iconic landmarks and a stunning floral installation across the ceiling, this is a surefire venue to impress for a big anniversary celebration.

Lula

Lula

6A -8A Lonsdale Road, Queen's Park, London, NW6 6RD

Lula is a little more low-key than others in this list, but the first floor venue space is a beautiful, aesthetically-pleasing spot for a cosy celebration. With room for up to 100 standing guests, this space boasts plenty of natural light thanks to twin skylights, and whitewashed floorboards and lime washed walls give it an inviting, rustic feel.

No.4 Hamilton Place

No.4 Hamilton Place

4 Hamilton Place, Mayfair, London, W1J 7BQ

If you’re planning something a little more classically stylish, this Grade-II listed Edwardian townhouse in Mayfair definitely fits the bill. Many of the rooms boast views of Hyde Park as well as luxurious detailing, but the Argyll Room and Terrace is made for celebrations - a hidden gem in the heart of London, with a large roof terrace that overlooks the park. The terrace also has a heated marquee for colder days too.

The Conduit

The Conduit

6 Langley Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JA

This ethical members’ club is serious about its sustainability credentials, whether it’s the produce used in the Rooftop Restaurant, or the materials used for huge swathes of the building itself. The whole townhouse has been beautifully styled, but we especially love the al fresco terrace on the roof, which is equipped with heating and cosy blankets for the colder months of the year.
