Modelled on the opulent ocean liners of the mid-20th century, with its winding balustrades and open foyers, Royal Festival Hall is an exceptionally stylish venue, reminiscent of a bygone era.

Originally the centrepiece of the 1951 Festival of Britain, the hall retains an undeniably celebratory atmosphere, making it an evocative and memorable wedding venue.

Not only one of the masterpieces of post-war British architecture, Royal Festival Hall is licensed for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies, meaning you can host both your ceremony and your reception here with us.

With numerous balconies and terraces throughout the building, we have some of the most unforgettable, romantic views in London, taking in several of the city's most-loved landmarks. Your dedicated event manager will work tirelessly to ensure everything is perfect on the day and stress-free in the run up – just exactly how you want it.
