The Walks and Marquee

Gray’s Inn gardens are the perfect summer party venue in Central London. Known as The Walks, they were originally laid out in 1608 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 for a photography, weddings, summer parties and more.


During the summer The Walks are equipped with a luxury and modern marquee which is equipped with air-cooling, dance area, bar, bathrooms and wooden decking. The versatile structure holds endless opportunities for a wide variety of summer events.


The Walks and the marquee offer a distinguished setting for private and corporate parties, wedding receptions, concerts, barbecues and other outdoor events. If you are looking for your next summer party venue in London then look no further!

The summer marquee structure can hold the above amounts, however the gardens are over 5 acres and so additional stretch tents can be added to accommodate larger parties.
