The River Terrace is an exceptional spot for events, with a breathtaking neo-classical view of Somerset House and a glamorous London vibe. It’s perfect for entertaining guests during the summer months, and has amazing views of the Thames. In case of any rainy British weather, we’ve also got the Seamen’s Hall as a wet weather contingency and some jumbrellas to make sure everyone stays dry.

This summer, we’ve teamed up with some fantastic accredited suppliers to create exclusive event packages, taking all the hard work out of planning for event organizers. There are a variety of catering options available from some of London’s top caterers. You can choose from barbeque options from Clement Worrall, canapés and bowls from Alexander & Björck, or innovative food stations from Bubble. We’ve also got FullCircle, a production house that provides furniture and entertainment options such as DJ’s, roving bands, large games, and magicians, on hand to make your event even more special. Venue hire of the River Terrace is included in the package.

We’ve made the pricing for our packages simple and transparent. You can easily see what your event will cost, with plenty of flexible elements to play with and enhance as needed. We’ve included drinks in the packages, so all you need to do is bring your guests and make a few decisions. We’ve taken care of the rest, making it super easy to plan a summer party here. It’s much more accessible than people may realize.

    Wow! Somerset House is a beautiful building, it’s well kept and a lovely environment. I came to visit the cute exhibition here and I really enjoyed it, the hello kitty cafe is ADORABLE and the food was so yummy. The actual exhibition was very interesting and was decorated really well, I definitely felt like it was worth the cost and it was an enjoyable experience! Can recommend! Also no wait but get there early

    This is an amazing space both as an example of Baroque architecture, art galleries and open public space. This building was until 2000 the record office of births, deaths and marriages in the UK and the Square was the staff car park. Enjoy this great space, just off The Strand to relax and enjoy the London seasons

    Beautiful historical building to visit during the day. In the summer and during other seasons, they offer recurrent concerts in the inner patio. The acoustics is surprisingly good. There are several drinking and eating options. The shows are on time and end early, making it easy to work the following day.

    We went to see the CUTE exhibition as an avid Hello Kitty fan I was quite excited to see it. Yes it was definitely quite interesting and made me for back to my childhood especially it was the time of the rise of “cute” era. However I the Hello Kitty part was only a small part of the exhibit hence I was a tad disappointed but still enjoyed the experience. For the price the exhibition it was quite small and not a lot to see. What’s nice is we were able to go back in a few times to go around it. I do love that they have an online guide, where you scan the QR code and see some explanations in your phone browser. The shop at the end of the exhibit was underwhelming and quite pricey too. It’s generally well organised and staff were helpful.
