Scenic Pop-Up Rooftop
As the evening’s get longer and (hopefully) sunnier, it’s prime time to return to London’s fantastic rooftop bars. With so many to choose from, we’re highlighting a new opening in London Bridge. It has breathtaking views of the city skyline, a delightful food and cocktail menu, supplied by local Borough Market vendors and a host of regular DJs. Opening on Saturday 17th April, this venue promises “to be here for a good time, not a long time” – so don’t miss out!
Elegant Terrace Dining
Based on the 7th floor of a vibrant East London hotel, this space embraces a lively and luxurious dining experience. Whether it’s a long, lazy lunch or a late-night dinner this venue has you covered! Their head chef celebrates inventive dishes and uses local, organic farm ingredients. The interior design also blend contemporary and cosy, which makes the perfect setting for a standing reception for up to 150 guests.
Colourful beer garden
This south-west venue provides an unrivalled urban oasis. Filled with a variety of delicious international street food vendors, 3 huge LED screens for sporting events and regular comedy nights. It is calling out for a sparkling summer shindig!
Following a recent renovation, the seating arrangement is more spread out. This continues to enhance the relaxed environment for attendees. As a private client you can also make use of their garden app, allowing food and drink to be delivered straight to your table.
Luscious Green Space
This venue is situated in the heart of Shoreditch, providing an incredibly rare green space in the City.
The venue has recently had a £12 million refurbishment, offering stunning lawns and gardens combined with a range of brand new, light and bright event spaces. With plenty of options available, they can deliver a socially distanced event in any weather, well-prepared for all your corporate summer party needs.
Moreover, this is a blank-canvas space so offers flexibility if you wish to create a heavily themed event. Nevertheless, set against the backdrop of Grade I listed almshouses, this is a truly unique venue with which to impress your guests. The central location and excellent transport links also make this venue ideal for a broad range of events.
Life’s a beach

Serving made-to-share seafood platters and freshly-shucked oysters, your summer favourites will be elevated to new heights. Don’t skip dessert here as the ‘Gourmet 99’ ice cream is not only a trip down memory lane, but absolutely delicious.
Summer goes hand in hand with cold refreshing drinks and panoramic views across the countryside. There’s no better place to enjoy a lazy afternoon than on this Surrey venue terrace.
The views are far reaching over the beautiful golf course and gardens. Pretty golden stone is complemented by scented flower pots and aromatic herb borders. A picture-perfect way to start a countryside retreat!
Over the past year an extraordinary new venue has been built on the Thames. Take a second to bask in the revered riverscape from Waterloo Bridge, towards Westminster and beyond.
This is a dramatic and flexible reception space. The highly visible deck can be used to enhance your guests arrival by creating an impressive branding impact.
