Your guide to London’s birthday party venues

We believe that birthdays are a big deal. Any amazing birthday party needs an amazing London birthday party venue. Fortunately, the nation’s capital is bursting at the seams with bright and beautiful birthday spaces. From rooftop cocktail bars to off-beat activity venues, no matter your age there’s a London venue for you. We’ve compiled the best planning tips we have, alongside some standout birthday venues, to make sure that your big day stands out amongst the crowd.

Get thematic

Themed birthday parties are a great way to make your party memorable. Some venues cater to specific themes that you can incorporate into your own event. Have a football-focused get-together with cocktails and penalties. Fan of the high seas? Have a nautical-themed party at one of our London boat venues. Top Tip: If a venue’s theme doesn’t stand out then don’t settle. On your party brief, you can request any personalisations you’d like.

Budget first, party later

A clear budget is essential to any party planner’s arsenal. With so much choice and variety, you can find something for any birthday budget in the endless venues of London. That said, you don’t want to waste your time with venues that don’t quite fit your price range. It can be difficult to judge how far an entire event budget will go – and no one wants to run out of booze halfway through a party. To make sure you’ve got control of the purse strings, we find that working out a budget per person can be a great way to see where - and who - your birthday spend is going on. Check out our budget calculator here.

Location, location, location

London is a sprawling city, with each area having its own distinctive feel and character. Consider this when searching for a venue – luxury, high-end birthday venues will tend to be in the central areas of London, whereas the boroughs might be more appropriate for a big, easy party space that won’t break the bank. Transport is also key. If alcohol is going to be involved then you’ll want to be in easy reach of public transport or, for the super organised, book your taxis before to guarantee a swift arrival and departure.

Frequently asked questions

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring a birthday party venue in London. Do you want catering? How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, the night or a weekend? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue take the initiative, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues will reach out to you.

There are lots of ways to book a London birthday party venue. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best birthday party venues in London and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.

For birthday party venues in London, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:
