The news is perfectly timed for the Jubilee celebrations, as each of these venues has a rich history of regal connections, and all provide an unparalleled sense of glamour, making them beautiful and unique backdrops for a variety of events and parties. Read on to find out more about each venue.

Tower of London

This historic castle on the north bank of the river Thames is famous for incarcerating high-profile prisoners and safeguarding precious contents within. (It’s home to the Crown Jewels.) At the centre of this ancient fortress and World Heritage Site is its oldest and most recognisable building – the White Tower. The King’s Great Hall on the first floor is a truly special space for dinners and receptions, and a magnificent experience at night. Additional spaces available for venue hire include the New Armouries, Medieval Tower and the newest space, the Reveller.

The crowning glory of Banqueting House are the nine magnificent ceiling paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, one of Europe’s most influential and important artists.
