Beautiful Rooms - The Outdoor Terrace, British Library

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 - 12:30

The British Library's spacious outdoor Terrace is the perfect alfresco area for an evening drinks reception. On a balmy summer evening you can enjoy views across the rooftops of St Pancras, signature cocktail in-hand designed exclusively for your guests.

This setting is the perfect backdrop for a relaxed and memorable celebration, networking event, or to offer your delegates a sociable end to a conference hosted in our Knowledge Centre.

Couple cocktails or champagne with indulgent canapés, sumptuous bowl food and succulent platters, all designed by our specialist in-house chef. The single level, wide open paved terrace allows you to position furniture to create smaller areas however you wish, offering you a flexible outdoor solution with ample room. 

Should the weather be unpredictable your guests can move into our adjacent Terrace Restaurant. Overlooking the outdoor Terrace, its floor-to-ceiling windows create a light and airy space so that your guests will hardly feel like they are indoors. Inside, the Terrace Restaurant has a light and modern feel. You can dine or dance here, as the space is perfectly suited to a dance floor as much as a dinner.
