Snow falls in soft blankets outside the window whilst, inside a snug London festive venue, party goers clink glasses of egg-nog and cosy up by the open fire. Okay, so we can’t promise snow, or the best fire-side seat, but what we can do is guide you on your merry quests to find the perfect Christmas party space.
What Christmas are you dreaming of?
The beauty of planning a Christmas party is that you have complete control over what kind of event you want. From festive banquets fit for a Tudor king to office work parties that will be remembered (hazily) for years, there are plenty of options for the kind of Christmas party you might want. Here are a few standout venues that can elevate your festive fun:
Neverland - For winter vibes you’ll struggle to get better than Neverland. This snug, unique winter wonderland brings alpine aesthetics to the streets of Fulham. Enjoy warming drinks on fur-lined sofas and get lost in their very own pine forest: book now for an immersive Christmas party.
The Empire Room, Landmark London - This stunning banqueting room in one of London’s top hotels will elevate your Christmas do to aristocratic levels. Dine and drink in sumptuous glamour with high feelings and opulent chandeliers. A Christmas carol this is not.
Budgeting for a London Christmas party
Nothing quite says Christmas like a Scoorge-like grip on your finances. Okay, so budgeting might not be quite in the spirit of silly season, but a crucial part of party planning is getting your spending watertight so there are no unhappy boxing day surprises. Consider whether your Christmas party is a liquid lunch affair or a full festive banquet. Allocate a spend per person, that way you can maintain control over the macro and micro costs of your event.
Sleighs, skis and snow boots
Getting to and from your London Christmas party shouldn't be a miserly experience. Fortunately, London boasts a fantastic transport system that can get you and your friends or colleagues to and from whatever venue you decide to book. For those coming outside the capital, locate your Christmas bash near a main station, reducing the travel time for inbound guests. The only downside to a London Christmas party is the probable lack of parking – London's busy boroughs are often unforgiving when it comes to spaces, but who wants to drive into their Christmas event, anyway?
