1. Kew Palace
Kew Palace, located on the banks of the River Thames in South West London, is a quiet and intimate palace found within the Royal Kew Gardens. It’s limewash brick and greenery take you back in time to the 17th century. Available for 40 to 60 people, your Guests will be surrounded with the charm of Kew Palace.
With its intimacy and greenery combined with its picturesque nature, Kew Palace is the ideal venue for a summer soiree, a company party, and a team celebration.
Step into the Great Hall where our Great Kings and Queens dined and celebrated so many years before us. The Great Hall is a hidden gem of Hampton Court Palace located just roughly 27 km from the city of London.
The high beam ceilings and detail will give your party a sense of enchantment they can’t find anywhere else. Being at the centre of the Tudor Palace, your Guests will get to witness the same intricate Gothic architecture as Henry VIII, for a dinner party they will never forget.
While eerie and dark thoughts may surround the aura of the Tower of London, there is much-hidden beauty and elegance in this historical London fortress. Situated right on the River Thames, the Tower of London has been a symbol of this iconic city for over 1,000 years.
The White Tower, available for booking only in the evening, is a classic yet adaptable Space with the ability to cater to all the needs of your event.
Whether it be 60 seated Guests at a long table for a royal dinner or 250 for a drinks reception, the White Tower is a breathtaking, once-in-a-lifetime location that you don’t want to miss out on.
Situated in the heart of London, the Banqueting House allows you to step into a royal treasure with its high painted ceilings and glistening chandeliers. Home to the English Monarchs in the late 16th century, the Banqueting House allows you to host up to 380 Guests for dinner.
The tables can be fixed into round tables of 10, or they can take you back to banquet style of Elizabethan London with three long tables. Either way, you can’t go wrong! Your Guests will never want their royal treatment to end while they dine at the Banqueting House.
Home to royalty for almost 400 years and the most recent royal wedding, it’s no secret that Kensington Palace is a real-life fantasy.
