Finding the Right Place to Party - London Party Venues and Venue Hire

 By: Sara Allom
One of the most crucial ingredients for a really good party is the venue.
Whether the party is in a private house or garden, on a sun soaked French beach, or at a famous and awe-inspiring London landmark, a venue can make or break a party.

Hiring a party venue, if you don't have a suitable house or home, doesn't have to be expensive - some venues even allow you to use their space free of charge, as long as you use their own caterers and bar suppliers for the party itself. But of course a large business or company, a corporate organisation, or someone simply with a bigger than average number of guests, will all need a proper party venue.

Lots of party venues have other uses. Museums and monuments often make great venues, and of course lots of London tourist attractions double up as great London party venues too, with their own events teams and so on. Popular London party venues include the Natural History Museum and The Science Museum, Madame Tussauds or The London Aquarium, Guildhall, The Roundhouse, The Design Museum or The Saatchi Gallery, in fact the list of London party venues is endless.

These party venues often work with a list of preferred suppliers - the florists, party planners, caterers, DJs, bands, and lighting and production companies that they feel do the best job of creating parties in their spaces. Some of the best catering companies for example, such as The Recipe, Eclare and Urban Caprice are all experienced in working in London's biggest and best venues.

And now, as Summer draws to a close and people turn their thoughts to the Christmas party season, party venues with scope for real seasonal creativity start to appeal - places with that little something special for the festive season, or venues that are just plain extraordinary. The Silver Fleet in London for example is a fleet of luxury vessels available for hire for Christmas parties - your guests are offered impressive panoramic river views, superb food by one of the UK's top caterers - "rhubarb" food design - and some perfect Christmas party memories.

As for the process of finding the perfect venue, the Internet has made that much easier. There are now a variety of event-led venue hire websites and organisations, which allow you to browse through all the venues located in a city.

Of course, as times have been hard financially for some companies, some are looking into cheaper party venues this year, or even 'in-office' events, with a bit more time and money spent on creative decoration of the less exciting space. Stunning flowers and candles, evergreen table decorations, swags of mistletoe and gorgeous twinkling lighting, can turn even the most uninspiring corporate boardroom into a winter wonderland. And don't think the colour scheme has to be restricted to traditional reds and greens either. Colour co-ordinating your Christmas table or venue is easy for those companies experienced in this kind of thing - how about white and hot pink, or black and purple? The better event production companies and in house design and decor departments can wave their magic Christmas wand over anything!

Certainly finding the right party venue, be it in London or elsewhere, takes you more than half way to having the perfect Christmas party - just don't forget the Christmas tree and mince pies!
