A classic, traditional wedding is all well and good but not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea. For a day that is sure to be remembered by everyone in attendance, your best bet is to opt instead for something a little different, and what better way to set the tone than with an unusual venue.
Here are some of our favourite unusual venues to hire in Central London:
This public art gallery on the outskirts of Central London is one that is not to be missed. Dulwich Picture Gallery is a Grade II listed building, making it a unique venue that is suitable to all types of events, including gorgeous weddings. With its surrounding art and modern interiors, and not to mention the landscape gardens, this London art gallery provides the perfect backdrop for any big day. A truly welcoming and original venue, we don’t doubt it will be one to impress your wedding guests and stand out in their minds for a long time to come.
Tanner Warehouse is a bar, restaurant and multi-purpose warehouse event space that has played host to all sorts of private and corporate occasions, meaning the friendly staff are well versed in the running of a successful event. The sleek open kitchen offers delicious food, whilst the fully-loaded bar takes care of the drinks. Hire also includes access to the top-notch in-house audio-visual equipment which should help with any entertainment and such forth, should you wish to organise it. With a good maximum capacity on offer and a great location in Bermondsey Street, just a stone’s throw from London Bridge station, it’s equally as convenient for your guests.
Islington Metalworks comes from unique beginnings, having once been the building used to house the horses that pulled trams for London Transport. Having been given a whole new lease of life, it now functions as a highly flexible venue, hosting everything from club nights and parties to exhibitions and fashion shows. Fully licensed with an on-site kitchen and catering team, your guests should be well taken care of, and they should also have no problem reaching the venue, as it sits right behind Angel tube station, making it easily reached from throughout London.
LIBRARY is one of London’s newest offerings in the way of venues but it is fast becoming known as one of its most interesting. This private members’ club in Covent Garden can suit many different occasions, with an eclectic interior that is overflowing with quirk and charm, appealing especially to the city’s literary, music, theatre and design communities. The décor boasts touches of both old and new so that there’s always something to draw the eye. There are 4 tube stations all just minutes away on foot, which should ensure that your guests can all reach the reception with relative ease.
Mr Fogg’s has been cleverly designed to feel like the eclectic and delightfully quirky Mayfair house Phileas Fogg would have called home after his adventures across the globe in Jules Verne’s celebrated work, Around the World in Eighty Days. As such, the decoration is unlike anything else you will find in London (or anywhere else for that matter), with all sorts of fascinating and eye-catching trinkets to keep all your guests talking. In spite of all its eccentricity however, it is still a practical choice, with a capacity of 170 and several nearby transport links to utilise.
