Outdoor Space

Outdoor Space Venues

At UVL, we believe that there's no better way to connect with your team than on a corporate away day at a sophisticated outdoor venue, and London, being one of the greenest cities in the world, certainly has no shortage of luxurious parks, open spaces and event areas to escape to; even in the centre.

Why not organise a private garden party for your business, with sports and conference facilities to give the right balance of work and play? Whilst the summer is the ideal time to arrange this, we also have a variety of marquee venues for private hire, suitable all year round.

More information on our venues can be found below, but please don’t hesitate to contact us at enquiries@uniquevenuesoflondon.co.uk in order to discuss or view the preferred location for your next outdoor event.
