Once the sun pops out, everyone stampedes onto the streets of London in an attempt to top up their depleted Vitamin D reserves. And can you blame us?! If you’re booking an event in advance, check out some of our favourite roof terraces and rooftops to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the good weather. Lots of the spaces are rain friendly too, so you don’t need to worry if Mr Sun hasn’t got his hat on. Hooray!
Location: Tower Hill
Capacity: 350 standing, 50 seated

One of our favourite spaces – especially if you need to impress! Amazing views over Tower of London, the service is excellent and they have a variety of spaces to choose from depending on the size of your guest list.
Location: Kings Cross
Capacity: 140 standing, 110 seated
Check it out here: EGG LDN
EGG LDN have four different outside spaces for hire with a range of capacities, so there’s something for everyone. It’s walking distance from Kings Cross so great for commuters – no excuses now! Well set up for corporate events and workshops, they’ve got WiFi and disabled access.
Location: Piccadilly Circus
Capacity: 90 standing, 35 seated
Check it out here: Karma Sanctum Soho
A more intimate space than some of the other options here, this roof terrace is great when the weather isn’t reliable (all the time, basically) so you’ve got good outdoor and covered options. Close to Piccadilly Circus station so easy to get to, and a great view of the rooftops. Very Mary Poppins with a martini.
Capacity: 250 standing
Check it out here: Bird of Smithfield
We love the grass and the trees, and it’s a pretty instagrammable spot. It’s a stunning suntrap and gets the best of the evening rays. The whole building has different spaces available to hire, so you can move your guests downstairs if it gets chilly towards the evening.
Capacity: 150 standing, 100 seated
Check it out here: 4th Floor Studios
The outside bamboo rooftop is ideal for small events and BBQs at altitude. It’s got a fun feeling of a tree house, and there’s plenty of space inside for the rest of your event. 4th Floor Studios is a dry hire space, but comes with two kitchens and a barista-style coffee machine so you’ll have all the equipment you need. Perfect for workshops or DIY corporate summer parties.
Capacity: 800 standing, 400 seated
Check it out here: Broadway House
Definitely one of the more spacious rooftop locations, and has two roof terraces. You can host anything from private screenings to weddings – we love the rattan garden sofas. Ideal for lounging with a cocktail and a view over London.
