Whether you are planning an elegant sit down dinner or a themed party, the Royal Horticultural Halls’ Lindley Hall is the perfect way to greet your guests in style.

The Hall opened its doors in 1904, and has since played host to royalty, the biggest names in fashion and countless world leading events. With its stunning period features and contemporary touches, it’s a backdrop that your guests won’t soon forget. 

A versatile reception

The Lindley Hall is designed to provide a perfect blank canvas for your event, without compromising on the period features which make it unique. With white walls and light flooding in through the glass vaulted ceiling, the venue can easily be tailored to suit your needs.

There is space to host up to 700 guests and room for a dance floor. We can also customise the space to include lavish features such as separate bars, street food stalls and performers, such as fire eaters and acrobats.

From product launches to awards shows, the Hall has hosted a huge range of receptions, demonstrating the versatility of this iconic venue. Take a virtual tour to see how the space could work for you. 

World class catering

We understand the importance of outstanding food, which is why we work with some of London’s leading luxury caterers, who can provide everything from canapés to three-course meals to wow your guests. Visit our ‘Catering’ page for more information. 

Cutting edge event technology

We’ve invested in the latest technology to support your event. Our intelligent lighting system, uplighters and advanced light effects can add impact and atmosphere, and we also offer an iPad controlled AV system and free Wi-Fi. 

A stress free experience

We understand that hosting an event can be stressful. To make things easier for you, we’ll provide a dedicated event planner to help keep things on track and tailor the reception to your vision.

We also have a three-tonne goods lift, which can help you set up safely, and we will provide a dedicated first aider and first aid room.
