About Raven's Ait

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.

Testimonials For Raven's Ait

The perfect venue for a birthday partyOCTOBER, 2021

Myself and my wife chose Ravens Ait as the venue for our sons first birthday/christening party. Right from the word go Laura Searle was attentive to our requests, welcoming and made the whole process extremely straight forward. The BBQ food was fantastic, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming and all of our guests were super complimentary about the whole day. Thanks so much again to Laura for making Oliver's party so perfect!!

THE PERFECT VENUE !!! THE PERFECT STAFF !!!SEPTEMBER, 2021

The biggest shoutout to Georgia we would like to thank her for all her hard work towards our wedding. It was an absolutely incredible day-we have not been able to stop talking about our wedding at the Ravens Ait. We had no idea a wedding could be as amazing as it was-we both agree-it was the best day of our lives! Our guests also had an amazing time saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Thank you so much for coordinating our crazy family :) & organizing everyone for the procession. The ceremony was magical. We and our guests are still beaming (and will for a long time) on what an amazing wedding it was. Thank you again, Kind Regards Rachel & Corey

Open air cinemaJULY, 2021

I just wanted to say we had the most fantastic evening on the island last night for The Greatest Showman viewing. The whole event was so well orchestrated, from the smaller cute boat that took us to the island, the bean bags and individual headsets, the food, service and the larger boat to get us back (we feared we would be waiting long with the small boat initially but we’re happy to see the larger boat on departure). We all left in very high spirits and had a wonderful time. This was aided by the fact that a lady called Laura kept us updated via email beforehand of all/any details pertaining to the night. We will be back

Fantastic corporate event planningMARCH, 2021

Huge thanks to Laura and her team for all the help in organising and delivering a summer party/sports day/team building/bbq event for our company. Attention to detail was incredible, flexibility was amazing when the rain started and we were well looked after from the moment we got there to the moment we left. Many staff considered this the most successful company event in years and I think the Ravens Ait crew made that possible. Thank you.
