Updated on 09 February 2022

When planning an event, they say the people make the place. But, after looking at some of these venues, we think the place itself can make all the difference.

London’s summer party venues offer a variety of spaces and facilities, with excellent outdoor spaces for open-air celebrations and amazing views. We’ve scoured the capital in order to find the very best venues available for your summer party. Choose from iconic London landmarks, galleries, restaurants, palaces and even boats for your next party venue in London and celebrate the warmer season in style.

The summer brings the heat (usually) and it always brings the fun. With the summer months come the perfect conditions for throwing a soiree, wedding, product launch, hen do, business gathering and more. No matter your budget or requirements, we’re sure you’ll find something to wow your guests.

British summers are fleeting at best, so a party is a great way to make the most of it. The last thing you want is to be filled with regret come September. So pull out all the stops and throw a summer blowout. When it comes to planning the perfect summer party - whether for work or friends and family - think about the style of party you are planning and pick a venue to match. If it’s a large event you are planning then look for an impressive venue that offers exclusive hire. For smaller gatherings, you might want to instead choose a location that offers shared parties or the ability to hire smaller spaces within the venue.

Come on - do you really need more reasons to throw a party? It’s sunny outside! Start exploring our list of the best summer party venues - if you need any help then our free concierge service is always available to help you find your venue.
