How to Hire Christmas Party Venues in London

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?


Simply, the earlier the better. Now, we’re not saying you need to wake up groggily on the 26th of December and start drafting a secret Santa employee map (unless you really want to). But the truth is the best London Christmas party venues will start to take bookings well before the festive season starts in earnest: we recommend starting your search towards the end of summer, no matter how wrong it feels, and that way you’ll ensure you’re on the venue-booking good list.

Towards the lower end of the budget, you can expect some drinks and finger foods – think sausage rolls and carrot sticks. Let’s be honest, though, most London Christmas party venues can do better than that, and you deserve better. Ask the venue if they have a festive menu – lots of venues will get creative with their festive bites, and it can really make your Xmas bash stand out. Top tip: Don’t forget to ask about the entertainment involved in the Christmas party package. Long gone are the days of the depressing Christmas DJ (almost always someone’s uncle), and now you can expect a lot more when it comes to getting the party truly started.

There are lots of ways to book a London Christmas 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 Christmas party venues in London and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.

For Christmas party venues in London, you're spoilt for choice. Here's an extra special one that we vouch for:

Searcys at the Gherkin – With floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a view 38 floors above ground, Searcys brings a new meaning to sky-high dining.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring Christmas party venue. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon or an evening? Are you looking for food or activities? What about decorations? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.
