5. A beautiful private bar and outdoor area in a converted factory - Ministry Venues - Borough

Borough, London

A lot of London party venues claim to do it all, well this one stands a good chance of actually backing up that claim.

22. London's sky-high party venue: Landing Forty Two


Arriving at the towering glass-and-steel sculpture of the Leadenhall Building (the Cheese Grater to most), you'd be forgiven for thinking you were about to go to work in a faceless conglomerate with a name plucked straight from the Greek alphabet.

One private entrance and an elevator later, and you emerge, Forty-Two stories up, onto one of London's highest blank canvas event spaces. The interior is very Pompidou centre (no surprise, this being a Richard Rodgers building). Exposed pipework and ducting lead you neatly through a large open space than can accommodate 300 guests.

The draw, of course, is the view. Landing Forty-Two offers an expansive view over the City of London, with iconic buildings like the Gherkin and the Shard demanding your attention as soon as you enter the space.

Swingers London party 1
Swingers London party 3

25. Party with in the City with one of London's best golf venues: Swingers


Pitch, putt, pints. This seems to be the ethos behind one of London's best crazy golf courses.

With two 9-hole courses to play from, Swingers demands a keen eye and a steady hand to make it through the various mechanised obstacles that litter the turf. Since 2016 the venue has delighted and frustrated budding golfers with an array of imaginative spaces in which to strike a ball with a club into a hole in the ground.

The golf, though, is only part of the Swingers offering. Where they stand out is the excellent food offerings available to you on and off the course. Partnering with street food aficionados like Pizza Pilgrims, Patty & Bun and Crosstown Doughnuts, Swingers has wisely made the most of the London food scene. The drinks are worth trying, too, with our favourite being the Helter Skelter: a bewildering mix of Gin, Aperol, Seltzer and fruit. Just don't expect any holes in one after a few of those.

Your guide to London's party venues

There are few cities that can keep up with London when it comes to parties. The capital has some of the best party venues – be it small, intimate venues, massive party event spaces or quirky, unique venues that will elevate your private bash. Planning the perfect party can often feel like a mammoth task: with so many options you can often get lost in a labyrinth of endless choices and options. At HeadBox we pride ourselves on being party experts – we’ve planned every kind of soiree you can imagine and we’re here to help you party the right way without losing sleep.

From small party halls to large party venues

A great party has the perfect-sized venue for the kind of bash you’re planning to throw. Chances are you won’t want to hire out a whole converted warehouse for you and three friends (unless you really like your personal space). If it’s just you and a few close friends then you may want to consider hiring out one of London’s many amazing bars, or a small hall if that’s more up your street. For the bigger parties, we have an amazing catalogue of aesthetically impressive event spaces and outdoor venues that can accommodate an army of party-goers.

Canapes? Cocktails? Both?

Think carefully about what you want to supply for your lucky party guests. If you’re opting for food then it’s a good idea to consider the costs and benefits of different catering options. A sit-down meal will set you back more than a selection of snacks, and you’ll want to include private dining venues in your possible party venues. Alternatively, you can focus more on drinks with some of London’s top cocktail bars and make it a night to (sort of ) remember. Fancy a mixture? Lots of London pubs and bars will let you hire out your private space and have delicious food options as well, that way you and your friends can stay watered and fed and keep the energy going.

Location is key

A party is a great way to bring all your loved ones together. Part of the fun is seeing friends that may live in the far corners of the country – for them though, it might mean a bit of travelling. Plan sympathetically to your guests by scoping out the local transport links – London is super connected to all major UK cities, and it’s a good idea to look for venues that aren’t too far from the main train stations or, if you’re expecting an international crowd, perhaps look for some of the great airport-adjacent venues.

Top tip: When sending out your party invite it’s a good idea to note down the best ways to get to the venue - that way no one will find themselves lost or unable to park and missing the great vibes.
