West London's best venues to hire

West London gets a lot of slack. Long held to be the land of moneyed suburbanites with multiple cars and grating accents; the capital's western arm has a repetitional battle on its smooth, moisturised hands.

Before you jump into the Grand Union Canal and swim frantically Eastward, however, hear us out. The venues in West London are, by dint of geographic location, stunning. Think about it. The historical home of the wealthy and aristocratic, spared the mass flattening endured by the East in the blitz, the home of history, government and regulars a Whole Foods: West has some spectacular spaces.

What's more, you hire many of them out. We're not just talking community halls and pub function rooms (though there are those), West London gives you the opportunity to hire out museums, theatres – even palaces. So, have an open mind and wander west with us.
