Skylon location Southbank

Located within the iconic Royal Festival Hall, Skylon offers a spectacular panorama of London’s skyline with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the River Thames. Skylon is divided into three distinct areas – restaurant, bar and grill – with bespoke, bronze-coloured chandeliers that punctuate the space.

We have various spaces, which can accommodate large and small parties, from intimate private dinners of up to 60 guests to large group bookings of up to 150 people. Alternatively, you can exclusively hire the whole venue, which can host up to 500 guests for standing or up to 300 guests for seated events.

* Please note that the Canvas Events website restricts event types to only 20 options. Skylon is a very versatile venue and can accommodate a huge variety of different event types, so please do contact our team if you don't see your option online!


Exclusive Hire

Skylon has the wow factor for any exclusive private party or celebration – from intimate private dinners to large group celebrations for up to 300 people or standing receptions of up to 500 people. If you’re looking for something a little more intimate we can accommodate smaller group bookings of up to 150 guests standing or 120 guests for seated events.

With its beautiful views of the Southbank and unique atmosphere it rivals any event space in London. The venue offers attractive interiors as well as styling flexibility should you wish to transform the space completely, or simply keep it as it is. Our on-site event manager will guide you through every detail, from planning to execution, to ensure your event will be one to remember.

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 restaurantbar 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.
