Westminster Boating Base Christmas SW1

Westminster Boating Base is a unique venue, set in the very pretty Pimlico Gardens. The principal function rooms are linked over the atrium and the pavilion extends over the river, with floor to ceiling windows all round to provide dazzling views up and down the Thames. The Edgson room has a full length covered balcony to the river and is equipped with effects lights and speakers for music and dancing.

The spacious open-plan building lends itself to a wide variety of theming and is highly flexible with regards to event timings and permits smoking. The venue has been used as the setting for a number of block buster movies including ‘Love Actually’ staring Hugh Grant and Keira Knightly.

As the Boating base is a charity, the venue hire fee for the rental of the building goes directly to the Trust. This is the way that the charity manages to meet its overheads – and many hirers have expressed satisfaction in knowing that part of the cost of their event is going to a good cause.

The Boating Base is a stunning and unique venue for any type of event – whether it be a private party such as a family member’s birthday – or a corporate affair such as your company’s end-of-project celebration.

Set back from the road, in an attractive park setting, our entrance provides an air of exclusivity and once inside, the panorama of the river and Battersea power station is a striking view from our riverfront balconies.

The building lends itself to a variety of theming options and the gardens can be hired if you have an outdoor event in mind.

Capacities:

80 – 150 people for fully seated buffet or dinner
80 – 350 for a drinks reception or bowl food
