Located in the middle of the River Thames, Raven’s Ait island is a truly unique venue in London with the stunning backdrop of water in every direction. Despite being incredibly easy to access from Central London (just 10 minutes walk from Surbiton station), the island has the feeling of a complete escape, making it an ideal venue if you’re wanting complete tranquility. With a number of different rooms available to hire exclusively, there’s bound to be a space on Raven’s Air that will be the perfect fit for your event, whether that’s a party, a wedding or a conference.
The largest of the spaces available to hire is the impressive Marquee which sits right on the edge of the island, meaning that it provides stunning views over the Thames. Able to fit up to 400 people standing, the inside of the Marquee is a completely blank canvas which means that this space is highly adaptable. So, if you’ve got a very specific idea of how you want your event to look, the marquee could be the ideal choice for you.
For smaller events, both the Thames suite and the Britannia suite are highly flexible. The latter features its own private bar, as well as bi-folding doors which lead out onto a stunning terrace; this makes it a great spot for private parties. The Thames suite is connected to the stylish main reception building which is the ideal spot to begin your event before moving on to one of the larger venues.
In terms of food, Raven’s Ait has a fantastic in-house catering team who can provide a range of different bespoke menus depending on the exact nature of your event. On top of this the island offers a number of different drinks packages, which vary from unlimited drinks, to a specific tab at either of the two fully stocked bars.
