Why should I use VenueScanner?
Well, we’ve got some serious event-planning credentials. When our founder, Rebecca Kelly, first thought up the idea of VenueScanner, she wanted to create a genuinely useful resource that matched PAs and party planners with amazing venues. We started in London and have since expanded into towns and cities right around these shores.
It’s resulted in us helping people to find venues for smaller events - your exercise classes, birthday gatherings and meetings - right up to large-scale functions like business conferences and team away day experiences. Whatever event you are planning, you can bet that the VenueScanner team have sorted the venue for functions much like it before.
We’ve got a portfolio of some of the best garden party venues London has to offer, which has obviously been getting lots of attention since the pandemic made outside gatherings safer to organise than inside events.
Simply tell us a little bit about the event you’re planning: the event type, budget, area of town and preferred date, and we’ll have a shortlist of beautiful garden spaces in front of your eyes pronto. It’s also free to make an enquiry to the venue from our platform.
What’s so good about a venue with a garden?
Much has been made of how the risk of COVID transmission is lower outdoors when compared to in. Garden venue hire in London has seen a surge of interest and bookings quite simply because people feel safer when they are based outside.
But there’s also something about London in the summertime. There’s nowhere quite like it, is there? No matter where you’re based in the city - or if you’re travelling in from the suburbs - you’ll most likely have a favourite venue with a beer garden or secret rooftop or exclusive balcony. Having a couple of drinks and mixing with your friends (in a socially distanced way, naturally) just hits different when you’re in the great outdoors.
You’ll find some of the best roof garden venues in London on VenueScanner, and we’re also well represented if you’re searching for somewhere to get married. We get plenty of enquiries for venues with outside space for birthday drinks, as well, and throwing a garden party in London is a strong choice if it’s your job to arrange this year’s office away day.
What are the best areas for a garden party in London?
If you were looking for something inspired and lesser-known to start this list, we can only apologise. Our first pick is Soho, which has no less than 14 garden party hire options within a few streets on our platform. The charming courtyard at The In & Out and Dalloway Terrace’s private dining room are good options to start with here.
Another top choice for garden venue hire in London is Shoreditch, which has plenty of spaces with lovely views of the city to choose between. You can find an injection of colour and Latin flair via Barrio’s La Terreza, an excellent choice for corporate hire in the form of Dinerama’s Mezzanine and one of the most interesting and in-demand rooftop spaces at the summit of Queen of Hoxton.
If you fancy venturing even further out east, there are lots of exciting garden party venue hire options in Hackney Wick. Formans Fish Island has front-row views of the London Stadium while Barge East - which is set on a 114-year-old Dutch boat - is a space unlike any other.
You can find 15 garden party venues to hire in Paddington, including a 300-capacity venue available in the middle of Hyde Park.
There’s plenty on offer for those searching for garden venue hire in London if you’re south of the river. Roehampton, in particular, has two lovely spots in the shape of the Kings Head and the Roehampton Club.
