The River View

The River View reception area is our semi-private dining space and boasts outstanding views over the bustling Southbank and River Thames.

Situated in the middle of the restaurant, this space gives diners an uninterrupted view while they enjoy the atmosphere from the restaurant, bar and grill. This space is perfect for corporate events and special occasions and is suitable for either a seated dinner for 50 guest or standing receptions for up to 60 guests.


The Grill and Fine Dining Restaurant 

The natural buzz and glamour of Skylon makes it the ideal venue for large group bookings, birthday parties or business meals with a difference, serving up a modern British menu from our renowned Executive Chef Kim Woodward.

We can accommodate groups of up to 60 guests in the main restaurant, where you will be looked after by our friendly and proficient team while you sit back and enjoy the chatter in one of the most atmospheric restaurants in London.
