The perfect drinks reception backdrop

Planning an event and looking for a showstopping venue to make the best impression? Find out why The Pavilion at the Tower of London is perfect for drinks receptions.

Why choose the Pavilion at the Tower of London for your next drinks reception?


Overlooked by one of Britain’s greatest landmarks

Dating to the 11th century, the Tower of London was originally a royal palace and military defence, built for the powerful Norman ruler William the Conqueror. In fact, it’s Europe’s oldest royal castle, although it was also used as a prison from the turn of the 12th century until the mid 20th century. The tower is still an official royal residence, housing around 23,500 jewels known as the Crown Jewels, and it’s also inscribed on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

As you might expect, the Tower of London ranks among the UK’s most visited tourist attractions, receiving close to three million visitors a year. Unsurprisingly, with its impressive medieval backdrop, the Pavilion is one of the most sought-after event venues in London for corporate functions, summer events, Christmas parties, and other special occasions.

A spectacular winter and summer venue

The Pavilion is open from late November to late December and again from late June to late July. Hire it in winter for a stunning Christmas drinks reception under a luxurious marquee. Or book this luxury London events venue in the summer so your guests can mingle in the beautiful gardens, which include a five-metre covered recess in case the weather makes a turn for the worse.


Ideal for high-impact drinks receptions

The Pavilion at the Tower of London can accommodate between 400 and 1,200 guests for receptions, which means it’s well suited to medium and large events. Thanks to its easy access to the City’s legal and financial district, it’s an excellent setting for high-profile winter and summer events.

This venue is right next to Tower Hill tube station (Circle and District), and only a short walk from Fenchurch Street railway station.
