Marquee

Marquee Venues

Whatever the weather, holding an event in a marquee gives you the opportunity to experience some of London’s most stunning outside spaces whilst celebrating a ceremony or hosting an outdoor party. Many of our 80+ unique venues have extensive grounds and stunning gardens in which to accommodate guests, whether it’s a countryside feel or a taste of being at the heart of London.

Light and spacious, there’s something quintessentially British about a marquee venue in summer; it’s England at its romantic best. Keep it classic with drinks and canapes for a wedding reception or select a more formal experience for a sit-down corporate event.

A number of our member venues have permanent outdoor fixtures available all year-round or can work with you to install temporary solutions to suit your particular theme: create a festival environment with spacious tipis, experience nature with a transparent structure, or design a traditional wedding space with a luxurious marquee.

Don’t hesitate to contact UVL today at enquiries@uniquevenuesoflondon.co.uk to arrange a viewing with your preferred marquee venue from our list of members below.
