London offers some of the best city views in the world and so if you’re hosting an event somewhere in the capital, it’s understandable to want to really capitalise on that by finding a venue that presents a fantastic perspective over this wonderful city.
Found on the 42nd floor – hence its name – Landing Forty Two at The Leadenhall Building is in fact London’s highest dedicated event space, with plentiful full length windows to allow you to soak up the panoramic views of the Thames and the iconic skyline. The space itself encompasses 5000 square feet, has a total capacity of 300 and is very flexible in its use. Back at ground level, there are plenty of nearby transport links to help you get there, including Bank, Monument and Liverpool Street.
IET London: Savoy Place boasts 4 floors, each offering fully reconfigured spaces that have been sensitively updated to provide the very best in cutting-edge connectivity, energy efficiency and sustainable technology, whilst maintaining the heritage of the historic building which houses it. Many of the fully customisable rooms benefit from great views, but to really make the most of the city’s urban splendour, you’ll want to head to the newly opened roof terrace.
A highly contemporary blank canvas, Sky Garden can be tailored to suit many different occasions, but the impact of the backdrop helps to bring a sense of occasion no matter the nature of the event taking place. Being the highest landscaped gardens in all of the city, there is a wonderful contrast between the greenery of the plant life inside and the bustling city which lies beyond the striking glass walls. With 3 different floors and a total floor space of 45,000 square feet, the maximum capacity is a generous 650.
You don’t necessarily need to head up high to get a great view of the city. The Oyster Shed is a riverside venue that offers a different yet equally impressive perspective of London, with views out across the water and some of the best known landmarks in the area, including The Shard and London Bridge. Exclusive hire is available at the weekend; alternatively, there are several smaller bookable areas and a separate meeting room ideal for the likes of training days and workshops.
￼SMITHS’ of Smithfield is an all-day dining venue with no less than 4 different floors to its name. As such, it has several different spaces on offer and is therefore very adaptable when it comes to the layout and scale of your event, up to a total capacity of 850. The experienced in-house events team happily work alongside you to bring your ideas to life, whilst the offer of cocktail and butchery masterclasses means there is always the option of something unique and hands-on.
