Summer 2020 in the great outdoors

Although the weather outside might be cold and dreary, warmer and brighter days are right around the corner! Now is the time to start planning ahead for those outdoor summer parties, so we’ve compiled a list of our venues which we think are perfect for a summer get-together.

Royal Over-Seas League

Tucked away in the heart of Mayfair, our venue and garden provide a serene atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The private garden and terrace are adjacent to Green Park, offering a tranquil setting for drinks receptions and parties.

We’ve got two great packages for the summer, so take full advantage of the long days and celebrate with your guests, click to find out more:

Blue Fin

Set in the heart of Southwark and backing on to the famous Tate Modern, The Blue Fin building on Bankside is an easily recognised building thanks to the 2,000 blue aluminium fins that cover the building’s façade and shade the interior.

The Terrace on the 10th floor is an impressive space for drinks receptions and parties, with panoramic views overlooking the London skyline. This stunning venue can accommodate up to 300 people for a standing reception.

Get in touch with us today to find out more and to book your summer party with us.


Haberdashers’ Hall

Haberdashers’ Hall is the latest addition to the Graysons portfolio and available from 1st April 2020.  Set in the heart of St Paul’s, it is one of London’s finest conference and meeting venues.

From the moment you walk through the grand iron gates, your attention is focused on the tranquil courtyard garden, with its beautiful modern water feature, hand-cut lawn and fabulous array of sculptures.

The large, light-filled Orangery’s floor-to-ceiling windows open directly onto the garden, enabling up to 450 guests throughout.

To book your summer party at this chic London venue, get in touch with us today.


If you’re looking to escape the city, the beautiful wild botanic gardens of Wakehurst could be the perfect backdrop for your summer party. You and your guests could enjoy taking in the views from the carefully groomed croquet lawn as you sip your summer cocktail and enjoy sumptuous food.

You can choose from three individual spaces, the Elizabethan Mansion, the cutting edge, contemporary Millennium Seed Bank or a marquee set in the stunning gardens. Whichever you choose, you can be guaranteed to be inspired by the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
