Looking to plan the best event and create that great first impression for your guests? It all starts with picking the right venue and what creates that better than a unique and unusual venue?

Venue finding can be stressful, but not for us.

No more scrolling through venue search websites or venue-finding agencies. Let us, at Venue Reservations, (the best venue finders) do all the work for you.

We will find that event venue that has that something special or something unique. Somewhere that gives you and your guests that WOW factor. Somewhere which makes you, the event planner, instantly know “I want to hold my event here”.

Whether you are looking for a conference venue, a Christmas party venue or finding somewhere for your company summer work party, our job at Venue Reservations is to find the perfect location to leave your guests mesmerised.

Here are our top three unique venues guaranteed to give you that added WOW factor and some unusual venues thrown in to tempt you

1.Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark is one of the world’s most famous ships and is the last surviving tea clipper, the fastest and greatest of her time. She stands as a glorious monument to the age of sail and to all those who lost their lives in the merchant service. Situated on the shore of the mighty River Thames the ship provides commanding views over Canary Wharf and the City of London.

2.Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge has stood over the River Thames since 1894, and is not only one of London’s favourite icons, but one of the finest, most recognisable bridges in the world. This iconic and unique landmark is remarkable inside at night, as guests will be surrounded with spectacular views of London.


3.Wellington Arch

Wellington Arch is a towering landmark located at Hyde Park Corner and offers a unique venue for corporate and private entertaining. Its historic grandeur, elegant styling and spectacular vistas of the London skyline can’t fail to make your event an unforgettable experience. Set over two floors at the top of the arch, the contemporary event spaces can accommodate a versatile range of city events, from corporate breakfasts to night-time private dining.
