The ITA* Riverside Venue Collection
Oh we do like to be beside the Thameside!
There’s nothing like the lapping of the water and the bobbing of boats to put you in a summery mood and help you and your companions relax. You don’t need to head to the coast to capture the feeling – London is full of lovely Riverside venues right on the water’s edge.
So our Riverside Venue of the Month is, in fact, five! The Old Royal Naval College, Little Ship Club, Museum of London Docklands, Tower of London and Cutty Sark make up our awesome riverside venue collection, and they all offer amazing Thames views.
Think that rocking up to your venue by boat would make you feel like James Bond? (Or better yet like you’re sitting next to Daniel Craig!) Well with these venues you can find out!
All of our riverside venues are easily accessed by public transport, including the Thames Clipper.
Situated right on the banks of the Thames in picturesque Greenwich.
A huge range of spaces suitable for a huge variety of events.
If the beautiful river views don’t blow your guests’ minds, then the stunning Painted Hall will!
Over 5,500 square metres of outdoor space available for hire.
Little Ship Club
It’s hard to get closer to the Thames without swimming in it!
Great accessible City location.
The doors in the nautically themed Club Room open up to allow direct access to the Thames Path.
Versatility makes this venue ideal for a pioneering professional event or a laid back party.
Canary Wharf’s only Grade I listed building.
Both the museum and its in-house restaurant and bar, Rum & Sugar, offer quayside dining opportunities.
Unique spaces available to hire include the museum’s galleries and “Sailortown”, an immersive recreation of an 1840s dock neighbourhood.
The Wilberforce Theatre, Quayside Room and Boardroom are ideal places to conduct serious business and the rest of the museum is perfect for serious entertaining!
The Tower of London
The Wakefield Tower gives access to battlement walks and is known for its excellent views.
Incredible gems within an amazing gem – the Tower houses Britain’s stunning crown jewel collection.
Special guest experiences include a private view of the Crown Jewels, a special Yeoman Warder tour, and standing witness to the ancient Ceremony of the Keys.
Though many famous and infamous criminals were executed here, at least they got to enjoy some stunning views!
The last surviving British tea clipper – a true national treasure!
The Top Deck offers amazing views (including Thames vistas); the Dry Berth presents the one-of-a-kind experience of dining directly under the ship.
The Tween Deck is a mini-museum, taking guests back in time through the ship’s history.
This true survivor pulled through after catching fire in 2007 and, thanks to painstaking restoration work, is as beautiful as ever.
