Corporate summer party venues in London

Come on guys, you know what London is like. The second you hear of somewhere cool, all your friends went yesterday and it’s booked out til September of next year. If you haven’t booked your summer party yet you’re going to need to get a wiggle on.

Before you can come up with your cool summer office party ideas, you’re going to need to know where you’re going. Sports days can be fun if you’ve got a venue in London with outside space, but equally a work summer party can be a good opportunity to reconnect with high value clients. You probably don’t want them getting involved in the egg and spoon race.

We’ve got a selection of luxury, casual, impressive and low-key venues for you to have a look through so you’ll find somewhere that suits your guest list.
