    London Gala Dinner Venue Search Tips

    With so many great event venues to choose from, finding the right gala dinner venue in London can be difficult if you do not have a clear idea of what you are looking for. We have hundreds of clients contact us with a vague idea of their event brief and they will often waste a lot of time considering venues that are in fact not suitable for their event. If you need a hand planning your initial event proposal then get in touch with our team of venue finding experts, who will be able to help you formulate the flow of your event and then recommend a selection of suitable gala dinner venues that will fit your brief perfectly.
    Aside from the usual criteria such as how many guests you are expecting, or how much you want to spend on the event etc, there are a few things that you may want to consider when planning your gala dinner. When holding a gala dinner you may decide to have the entire event in one large event space, or you may decide to have a separate reception area where guests can meet and then move through to the main space. It is usually a good idea to find a venue that has this separate reception space that can often double up as an area for post dinner drinks if you are not planning on having a party or dancing in the main room. As such, we recommend that you ask the venue managers whether they have this additional space for a drinks reception. Many venues will be able to offer this additional space as a complementary extra, or for a reduced venue hire fee if you are also hiring a larger room for a gala dinner.
    For many individuals organising gala dinners, an important consideration will be where your guests are travelling from. Fortunately, if you are planning a gala dinner in London then even if you have guests traveling from far and wide, most gala dinner venues in Central London or the City of London will be easily accessible. Think about where your guests will be travelling from and then consider checking the route from main train lines or public transport to your short-listed gala dinner venues. This will ensure that they are easily accessible for your guests. Google maps or the App ‘CityMapper’ are useful tools for venues in London
