Grays Inn Summer Party Venue WC1

The Walks offer a peaceful oasis of impressive calm amid the hustle and bustle of Central London. Five acres of secluded private gardens provide a tranquil setting for our elegant marquee, which is available for private and corporate summer events. Our events always impress, our flexible options allow you to choose whether to pay separately for the hire of the marquee, food and beverages; building a bespoke event that is tailored to your exact requirements, or simply choose from one of our party packages, which covers venue hire, food and drinks.

Gray’s Inn has been home to lawyers since before 1388 AD and is today one of the four Inns of Court responsible for the education and training of barristers before and after their Call to the Bar. Gray’s Inn gardens are known as The Walks and were originally designed in 1606 by the then Treasurer, Sir Francis Bacon, whose statue can be seen in the South Square. The Walks remain among the largest private gardens in London: five acres of perfectly maintained park entered through a pair of impressive iron gates.

The park provides a peaceful oasis amidst the busy streets of Central London and is available throughout the year. During the summer The Walks are equipped with a graceful and elegant marquee which is hard floored and carpeted throughout. The versatile structure holds endless opportunities for a wide variety of summer events. The Inn’s gardens, from late June to late July, the Summer Marquee is erected. The Marquee provides an idyllic summer setting for a variety of events from corporate parties to weddings and outdoor events.

The Walks and the marquee offer a distinguished setting for private and corporate parties, wedding receptions, concerts, barbecues and other outdoor events.
