Why should I use VenueScanner?
The truth is that there are lots of venue-discovery websites, all grappling for position and claiming to be the undisputed champions at listing the best venues with outside space in London. So what sets us apart?
For starters it’s our people. We’ve got professionals who live and breathe venue discovery; it is their true passion. If you wanted to have a detailed discussion about hire fees and deposit policies at the pub (and why wouldn’t you?) you won’t find any people with more knowledge and opinions on the topic than the VenueScanner team. We asked to go on MasterMind with a specialist subject of ‘Venue Hire’. We’re still waiting to hear back.
We’re driven by a desire to list all kinds of interesting and characterful spaces. We know that people want to organise conferences, meetings and parties in venues that have something about them - a story or some history - and that’s led to us working with some of the most unique spots in the country. That’s true of our range of outdoor venues for hire in London, which has been getting lots more attention since the pandemic made outside gatherings safer to arrange than inside events.
Simply tell us a little about the event you are planning: the event type, budget, area of town and preferred date, and we’ll have a shortlist of London venues with outside space back to you in a flash. Our listing platform gives you all the information you could possibly need, and then, if you like what you see, it’s free to make an enquiry.
Where are the best outdoor venues in London?
The Sky Bar next to St. Paul’s Cathedral is certainly *up there* with the finest outdoor venues London has on its books. This space has lots of comfy seating, a large conservatory and room for up to 200 people to enjoy the views of London’s most famous historic landmark. Madison Restaurant - also near St. Paul’s - is another winner if you are all about those rooftop venues.
Barge East is a bar and kitchen situated on a 114-year-old Dutch boat. It’s got a lovely outdoor space with views of London and the close-by Olympic Stadium especially.
Neverland in Fulham is a popular spot for corporate summer parties and private get-togethers with your mates alike. It’s got beach huts and day beds and feasting tables which can be booked in advance.
For 58VE we’d just like to speak of the most stylish selling point: the transport links. It’s 500 metres from Blackfriars - surely the most underrated train station in London? There are links both north and south of the city, yet it doesn’t get the plaudits of a Victoria, Euston or Liverpool Street - and also has strong links via tube, river and bike. Oh, and 58VE’s exclusive sixth floor Lounge and Balcony space is pretty great, too.

What is VenueScanner Concierge?
In short, it’s an express event service that saves you time and money when organising large corporate functions.
This is another free service designed to help PAs source a venue in a short timeframe. After the event organiser has told us about their requirements, we negotiate the best rates with suitable venues, provide bespoke recommendations and then curate one document detailing all the venue offers for you to view and compare.
The whole process is 100% transparent - we communicate, but you see all the contact - and we can also recommend event suppliers if you need them. We aim to help you select the best option and get you booked in within one week of your initial enquiry.
Venues with outside space in London are a popular request for our corporate bookers. If you want to plan something similar but don’t have the time to do it yourself, contact us here and we’ll do the rest.
