It’s always important to find, creative venues if you’re in the events industry. But with everyone on the hunt, it’s getting harder and harder to find something special. So, we’ve created a list of out of the ordinary venues we recommend – all in the London area.
Unique Venues in London
Venice Simplon Orient Express
All aboard! The Venice Simplon Orient Express is like no other venue you’ll come across. For starters it has wheels. Not only is it one of the world’s most famous luxury steam trains, it but it is also a fabulous venue to host your event in. Step aboard this venue on wheels and give you and your guests an experience they will never forget.
The Dead Dolls House
Situated in the heart of Islington, this quirky venue is well worth a visit. The venue has a large range of rooms, all of which vary in size and style. The Dead Dolls House can accommodate a wide range of events, whether you’re planning a large celebratory banquet or a more intimate event. Despite its name, this venue is very much alive and perfect for those searching for a venue with a unique and stylish backdrop.

Japanese Roof Garden
Step out from the hustle and bustle of London into the calming environment of the Japanese Roof Garden. Solely based around and dedicated to forgiveness, the stunning garden gives guests the chance to find inner peace and relax – making it one of London’s more peaceful venues and the perfect setting for those more low key events.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children
A hospital which was once considered the best children’s hospital around now looks like more of a horror film set. The abandoned hospital which hasn’t seen a patient in 19 years now features peeling paint, missing ceiling tiles and loose wires. Its eerie atmosphere creates the perfect setting for those events which require a touch of horror, or filming which needs a spooky backdrop.

Hutong – The Shard
Dine high in the sky on the 33rd floor, inside one of London’s most fabulous skyscrapers. Better known as Hutong, the sister-restaurant and replica of the Hutong situated in Hong Kong. Being located so far off the ground, Hutong provides the most amazing panoramic views of the City, whilst also providing stunning interior designs for guests to be equally amazed at.
Being situated off the beaten path of Shoreditch makes this venue even better than it already is, as this has meant it is a well-kept secret. The hidden gem is an exciting restaurant venue- once you know its whereabouts; you would be silly to not get your teeth into it. The Story Deli is a triple threat, with its delicious food, stories behind the dishes served up and an unusually brilliant interior it’s perfect for those searching for a new experience – now you know the secret, will you test it out?

Bob Bob Ricard
You may know this venue as the restaurant where you can receive a glass of champagne at the click of a button, which made its way around all social media channels not long ago. Bob Bob Ricard is an iconic Soho restaurant which provides a luxurious English and Russian based menu and stunningly breathe-taking interiors. Bob Bob Ricard is a perfect venue for those searching for an experience which involves a touch of glamour and sophistication.
Chrisp Street Clock Tower
The clock tower was created for two purposes, first of all for people to tell the time and secondly to act as a viewing point for people to overlook both the surrounding neighbourhood and the towers of Canary Wharf. The beautiful modernist feature that is the Clock Tower is one which is unmissable and the perfect addition to the Chrisp Street Market.

The Isabella Plantation
The Isabella Plantation is a well-established 40-acre woodland garden which is set within a Victorian woodland plantation. Its gorgeous evergreen azaleas and general appearance is what sets it apart from so many other gardens and make it the perfect backdrop for a range of occasions, especially during the spring and summer months.
House of Dreams Museum
If you love weird and wonderful objects, then the House of Dreams Museum will be a London venue right up your street. The museum which bases its appearance around a shrine is solely dedicated to objects which most people would likely throw away. Each and every surface and wall inside this venue is encrusted with contents which would be found in old Christmas crackers, crockery and broken toys. Its busy atmosphere and appearance creates the ultimate unusual venue space.
