Serpentine Gallery and Pavilion by Asif Khan


Focusing on modern and contemporary art The Serpentine Galleries and Pavilion attract up to 800,000 visits a year – but hire it for your event and this unique space could be exclusively yours. Asif Khan’s design is inspired by the fact that Queen Caroline’s Temple was positioned in a way that it would allow it to catch the sunlight from The Serpentine lake. The Summer House takes a circular form whose circumference has been unpeeled to connect us and Queen Caroline’s Temple to a picturesque moment left hidden by William Kent almost 300 years ago.


The V&A


Create the ultimate first impression at the Victoria & Albert Museum, where a host of fantastic event spaces await, including stunning gardens and outside space. Hire the central dome and celebrate amongst high ceilings, marble flooring and classical architecture, or consider one of the Museum’s galleries for up to 300 guests.


The View from the Shard


Designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano, The Shard stands at a height of 1,016ft (310m), and is officially the tallest building in Western Europe. This iconic, landmark building has recently redefined the London skyline, so if you’re looking for a venue to impress it doesn’t get much better than this.
