Venue Features
The Scene:
The Roof Gardens in Kensington has long been one of London’s most spectacular and extraordinary landmarks. Originally designed as an escape from London rather than a pedestal above it, The Roof Gardens comprises of three themed gardens spanning across 1.5 acres, a private members Club and Babylon Restaurant all 100ft above Kensington.

The Roof Gardens is an ideal venue for every special event, from dinners to discos, bar mitzvahs to weddings, business meetings to BBQs on balmy summer nights! Our friendly Event Planners can plan events for as few as 50 guests up to 500. No other location in London offers  beautiful rooftop gardens with fully grown oaks and fruit trees, a flowing stream stocked with fish and wildlife and of course the resident flamingos.

If you want to celebrate in style, let the team at The Roof Gardens organise a fabulous evening out in our private members club. Hold a private party in one of our many exclusive VIP areas and you'll get the full VIP treatment with a dedicated cocktail waitress so that when you're tired of dancing you've got somewhere to put your feet up. You can also hold a pre-club party in our Silver bar for 50-400 guests, before partying the night away in The Club.

Looking for something more intimate for your party? Then why not hire one of our private areas in Babylon, our stunning restaurant with beautiful views of the London skyline. The Private Dining Room is ideal for private parties or board meetings for up to 12 guests. With its own private terrace overlooking our resident flamingos, private iPod connection and dedicated waiter all you need to do is sit back and relax.

If that's not enough, take a section for up to 30 or hire the entire restaurant exclusively for a party of up to 120 guests. Menus are created from our seasonal a la carte menu and can be designed on a bespoke basis.
