Tuesday 4 February 2020
London is home to an incredible collection of world-class venues, suitable for all kinds of different Christmas parties. If you’re looking for a great location for your next festive celebration, then London’s hard to beat.
The best London Christmas party venues offer everything you need for a standout celebration, from a beautiful backdrop and stunning wintry decor to a knockout sound system and show stopping lighting. And of course, no Christmas party would be complete without a decadent menu from one of the capital’s top caterers.
There are so many reasons to choose London for your next Christmas party, we found it hard to narrow down our list! So, if you’re currently struggling to make a decision, just take a look at the following 21 reasons to pick the capital for this year’s festivities.
There are endless venues to choose from
There are hundreds of top quality venues in London, meaning you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice when it comes to sourcing your ideal space.
Christmas party venues can be found all over London, and every area has some great spaces waiting to be discovered. We can never resist heading off the beaten track in search of brand new spaces and lesser known hidden gems.
We bet you’ll be amazed at the options.
London is home to some of the world’s best caterers
Catering is key to the success of any party, but we’d go so far as to say it’s even more important around Christmas time.
Choosing the capital for your celebration means you’ll be able to take your pick from some of the country’s leading caterers.
Many top London venues have an approved list of reliable caterers, who are well versed in the venue and its facilities. Others might provide their own in-house catering team. If you choose a blank canvas for a completely bespoke event, you’ll be able to choose your own London caterer and put together a unique menu for the occasion.
Entertainment options are endless
If you want to create an event that guests can’t stop talking about, you’ll definitely need to book some exceptional entertainers. Hosting your party in London makes it much easier to find quality entertainment, as the capital is home to so many different performers.
London Christmas parties have been known to raise the bar where entertainment is concerned, so if you want to exceed the expectations of your guests you’ll need to go all out. Choose from renowned singers, mind boggling magic acts, unbelievable aerialists, riotous comedians and so much more.
London venues are easily accessible
One of the key advantages of choosing a London venue for your event is accessibility. The capital boasts a great transport network, and the vast majority of London venues are easily reached by bus, overground, DLR or tube.
The accessibility of London venues means that guests rarely need to worry about how they’ll be getting to the party, or how they’ll manage to get home again afterwards. Choosing an easily accessible venue is also more cost-effective, as businesses don’t usually need to foot the bill for guests’ transport.
London venues come in all shapes and sizes
The extensive array of different venues available in London ranges from small rooms suitable for intimate Christmas dinners, right up to vast warehouse spaces capable of hosting thousands of guests.
The key benefit here is choice. London has so many venues that it’s never difficult to find the right sized space, in the best location, at a price that suits your budget.
You’ll probably discover a hidden gem
Many of London’s venues are incredibly well known, and the capital’s most famous spaces tend to get booked up year after year. However, great rewards await those ready to think outside of the box a little in their Christmas party planning.
London’s hidden gems can be truly spectacular, and guests always appreciate being taken somewhere they never knew existed. A little surprise and intrigue adds so much to that all-important wow factor.
There are some great party packages available
Organising a Christmas party from scratch can be time-consuming - and a little stressful. But there are shortcuts available that still result in a picture-perfect party that guests love. Take Christmas party packages, for example.
Many exclusive London venues offer a few different party packages, designed to take the hassle out of organising a celebration. The party packages include everything you might need to host an epic event, from venue design, catering and decor to drinks, lighting, sound, DJs, entertainment and so much more.
You can book a world renowned events management team
A great event management team could well be your secret weapon in the lead-up to your Christmas party, so it’s vital that you choose a talented, experienced team capable of delivering a faultless event.
A huge number of London venues boast their own in-house events management teams. These skilled professionals know their venues inside and out, and always go above and beyond to help their clients create magical events.
Consider venues with events management included if you want to take a weight off your shoulders as you plan your party.
Plenty of blank canvas venues are available
Thinking of creating an otherworldly event with the help of your own collection of handpicked suppliers? Well in London you’ll be able to do just that. The capital’s blank canvas spaces offer the ideal backdrop to the most creative, original events.
