About Skylon

Located within the iconic Royal Festival Hall on London's South Bank, Skylon offers a spectacular panorama of the city skyline with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the River Thames. This grand dining room is quite a sight to behold - the triple-height room is adorned with magnificent bronze chandeliers, and has a luxurious, palatial feel, with a mid-century look that echoes the buildings 1950s architecture. 

Weddings, standing receptions, business dinners or product launches; whatever the occasion, Skylon has a number of event spaces that are adaptable to suit any style, and most importantly, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic team dedicated to making your event a success. Skylon is divided into three sections - restaurant, bar and grill - with a raised bar separating the relaxed brasserie from the fine-dining area. Each of these smaller sections can be hired individually, and they're ultra-flexible should you wish to transform the space completely. The restaurant is the largest space with capacity for 120 seated guests, whilst the grill seats up to 30 for smaller, cosier dining experiences. 

If you're looking for something a little more intimate, the River View reception area might be perfect for you. This semi-private dining space sits in the middle of the restaurant, and boasts incredible, uninterrupted views of the bustling South Bank and over the River Thames, whilst still benefitting from the atmosphere of the restaurant. This space is perfect for corporate events, special occasions and drinks parties for seated events or standing receptions.

Or, if you're planning a big glitzy party and you're looking to impress your guests, Skylon is available for exlusive hire too. The whole venue accomodates up to 500 guests standing or 300 guests seated, and your dedicated event manager will look after your every need, from planning menus with Skylon's outstanding kitchen team, to sourcing entertainment.
