In June, the country (and the world, frankly) will be celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday. Right as we enter the British summer, it seems the perfect opportunity to make the most of the regal spirit in the air, and by opting for any of the following venues as the backdrop for your next event, you could do just that.
Yes, you really can hold your own private event at Kensington Palace, surrounded by the splendour of the stunning building itself and immersed in the rich cultural heritage that lives and breathes in the venue’s very walls. Complimented by beautiful gardens and ponds, and surrounded by tranquil parkland, it’s the perfect compromise between city convenience and a country escape. As you might expect, the service is guaranteed to be top notch throughout the planning and running of your event.
Found in the heart of the ever-popular area of Mayfair, which in itself comes with a reputation for luxury and sophistication, The Royal Institution of Great Britain is a truly prestigious event space that includes an expert team, dedicated events managers and strong supplier relationships, meaning minimum fuss on your part. Other features worth noting include the building’s Grade I listed status and original features, as well as the inhouse catering and AV equipment that are on offer.
Historic meetings of the greats, festive balls, and gala celebrations; they’ve all taken place at Hampton Court Palace, and you too could join the illustrious list of former visitors to this stunning space. From the glamour of the soaring state rooms and grand staircases on the inside, to the charm of the cobbled courtyards and gorgeous gardens on the outside, the attention to detail never wavers, with quality coming as an assurance.
Perfectly embodying all the elegance and understated beauty of the Edwardian era, Royal Horticultural Halls is a centrally located, highly flexible event space that can be found just 10 minutes from Victoria train station, meaning it’s easily reached from both in and out of London. Its generous proportions allow it to accommodate guest lists of up to as many as 700 people, but the vast, arched ceiling height ensures that even whilst at full capacity, the space won’t feel cramped of small.
Situated in the much-coveted area of Knightsbridge, just off the iconic King’s Road and well within easy walking distance of Sloane Square tube stop, The Royal Hospital Chelsea offers an impressive range of both indoor and outdoor spaces. The Grade I and Grade II listed buildings boast outstandingly ornate touches, charming period features and striking architectural details that hark back to the venue’s past. Whether for as few as 15 people or as many as 400, there’s a regal space here that could be exactly what you’re looking for.
