The Scene at Greenwich Yacht Club

Nestled between the O2 Arena and the Thames Barrier, Greenwich Yacht Club is a hidden gem on London’s River Thames. This unique London wedding venue boasts a spectacular waterfront setting, with panoramic river views forming a breathtaking backdrop for your wedding celebrations.

Whether you opt to host your celebrations in The Clubhouse or The River Rooms, you can be sure of an unforgettable experience at this gorgeous yacht club wedding venue in London. 

The River Rooms is Greenwich Yacht Club’s premier event space, made up of three adjoining spaces: the light-filled main hall, the reception bar, and the spacious outdoor decking. The rooms are hired as one, allowing your wedding to flow seamlessly from one space to another. Host your ceremony and reception in the dreamy banqueting hall, with its soft ivory ceiling drapes and breathtaking floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the River Thames.

Another venue option for your wedding at Greenwich Yacht Club is The Clubhouse — a spectacular two-storey glasshouse that sits perched on stilts in the River Thames. As your guests cross the bridge or arrive by boat to the private pontoon, they’ll be swept away by the incredible setting of The Clubhouse. This beautiful function space boasts floor-to-ceiling glass bifold doors, uninterrupted river views, and a wraparound balcony.

As night falls and London’s city skyline starts to twinkle, this waterfront wedding venue in Greenwich really comes to life. After dinner is cleared away and the drinks continue to flow, your guests can spill out onto the alfresco decking to soak up more of the river and city views. And because both of the function spaces at Greenwich Yacht Club offer plenty of room for a dancefloor, you can party the night away with your loved ones.

Venue Testimonials

My new wife and I got married at GYC last month. We loved this distinct and unique venue as soon as we saw it, and it turned out to be a great choice. The setting received rave reviews from guests throughout the day, but above all, the staff repeatedly went above and beyond to ensure that everything flowed seamlessly. I can't find fault with anything. And all this at a very reasonable price relative to many other venues in London - I think many of the guests assumed we had spent a small fortune for such a location! Highly recommended.

Adam W

Fabulous venue. Thank you to all of the staff and helpful managers yesterday and also for assisting with our clearing up this morning. Would certainly recommend it.

The initial process was nice and easy, Will the manager was very willing to work with us so that we felt totally comfortable about booking the venue. The value for money was great. The view was great.
