Wedding Guide to South Bank

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful traditional space, an iconic London backdrop, or something a bit more unusual, South Bank has a wide range of exciting wedding venues to take your pick from. To help you decide, we’ve assembled a list of some of the best spots to consider, depending on what kind of big day you’re planning.



  • London Marriott Hotel County Hall

    With an incredible outlook over Big Ben and the London Eye, it doesn’t get more quintessentially British than booking the London Marriott Hotel County Hall for your Wedding. Located in the beautiful Grade-II listed County Hall, every room is overflowing with character and charm: you have a variety of incredible spaces to choose from for your wedding, from their recently renovated Library to their 6th floor Westminster Suite which looks out over the Houses of Parliament.

    If you’re also looking for a spot to continue celebrations into the evening, their Gillray’s Bar has over 100 different types of gin, so your wedding party will be absolutely spoilt for choice.

  • Southbank Centre

    One of the only remaining buildings from 1952’s Festival of Britain, the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall is a building steeped in arts and culture: it can also be the ideal striking and romantic venue for your wedding day. You have three iconic locations to choose from, including both their rooftop pavilions, which offer views of the London Eye and Jubilee Gardens, or the Hayward Gallery and the BFI.  

    The Southbank Centre work with 9 different caterers, so whether you’re looking for an extravagant 3-course meal, well-stocked buffet, or just a range of canapes, they have the menu to suit you.

  • Park Plaza Westminster Bridge

    Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London offers an ideal location for weddings, receptions and celebrations in Central London.

    Their venue features two large function suites with contemporary décor, which can be styled according to your theme. You can also take advantage of separate adjacent kitchens for outside catering. The stunning Westminster Ballroom provides a flexible space for up to 1,400 guests for a wedding breakfast or reception. Alternatively, choose the Plaza Suite for up to 200 guests. All suites offer a private cloakroom, bar and foyer.

  • The Buffini Chao Deck

    Located on the top of the National Theatre, the Buffini Chao Deck has incredible panoramic views of the Thames and London’s skyline that make it an unbeatable spot to tie the knot. If you’re looking for a seated ceremony, the space can seat up to 100 attendees: if you’re planning an informal reception that goes up to 200 standing guests.

    The venue even has a dedicated wedding venue hire team on hand to help make sure the day goes as seamlessly as possible. In fact the state-of-the-art lighting and AV in the Deck have been specifically designed by experts within the National Theatre’s Sound and Lighting departments, so you can tailor whatever mood or atmosphere you desire for your big day.

  • London Eye

    If you’ve got your ‘eye’ on something a little more unique and unusual, then look no further than one of London’s most recognisable landmarks. A wedding on the London Eye allows you to hold the ceremony 135m above the ground, surrounded by a breath taking 360-degree view of the London skyline. With your own private capsule, decorated to the nines by the London Eye team, you can have up to 16 additional guests to share the special day with.
