Kimpton Fitzroy London Weddings
The Kimpton Fitzroy London is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious 5-star hotel wedding venues in London, with two exceptional event spaces: the breathtaking restored Ballroom, and the light and airy Palm Court.
Positioned on the eastern flank of Russell Square, where Bloomsbury’s literary history meets Holborn’s legal district, this timeless London wedding venue is a striking reflection of the capital’s cultural past and present.
The Scene at The Kimpton Fitzroy London
The Kimpton Fitzroy London’s commanding 19th-century terracotta facade stands out from the crowd of classical London townhouses and makes a memorable impression on your London wedding day. Situated in the heart of Russell Square, surrounded by a leafy park, quintessential British architecture and the characterful thoroughfare of modern-day Holborn, this luxury landmark hotel wedding venue is sought after for its central city location.
The Kimpton Fitzroy London’s coveted address once neighboured the residences of the ‘Bloomsbury Group’, an inspiring crowd of English writers and creatives who left a cultural legacy in this unique urban area. The Kimpton Fitzroy London stays true to this literary heritage, and most of its original artistic details have been preserved as if time has stopped. It’s a grand dame hotel that presents an effortlessly romantic setting to host your nuptial celebrations.
Weddings at this historic hotel venue are steeped in tradition, yet laced with state of art amenities to conduct a seamless event flow. There are two atmospheric wedding venues for mid-sized to large wedding occasions, including a glamorous ballroom venue and a contemporary Palm Court space with a laidback luxe ambience for standing drinks receptions.
Kimpton Fitzroy London Wedding Ceremonies
At the Kimpton Fitzroy London, the grand ballroom presents a stunning setting for your hotel wedding ceremony in Holborn. Imagine soaring ceilings, a decorative mezzanine gallery, and large windows that let in golden light.
With its own private entrance on Bernard Street for the wedding party, groom, and bride to arrive separately, the ballroom gives you that extra dose of privacy that’s not often guaranteed at most London hotels. The Ballroom is an exclusive ceremony space.
The ballroom is fully licensed for civil ceremonies with Camden Register Office, and so you would need to coordinate a date that works for you, the Registrar, and the Kimpton Fitzroy London. Once the wedding vows are complete, guests can walk directly through to Palm Court to toast to the newlyweds.
Wedding Receptions at Kimpton Fitzroy London
If you’re hoping to host your London wedding reception at The Kimpton Fitzroy London, you’ll be presented with two contrasting event spaces that complement each other beautifully.
The Palm Court is a light and airy conservatory-style suite that gives the impression of an indoor garden. The indulgent interiors include lofty pot plants, a jaw-dropping frosted glass ceiling, two small skylit terraces with climbing wall trellises, and plush scattered seating that encourage a social atmosphere.
A sweeping drinks bar takes centre stage on the far wall of Palm Court, and its large marble counter provides easy access for guests standing in all directions. On either side, tiled steps ascend to raised platforms, which work well for DJ booths or live bands. If you’re after a wedding reception venue with a wow factor, Palm Court at the Kimpton Fitzroy London will deliver beyond expectation.
Adjacent to Palm Court, the Ballroom is connected via double doors so that guests can seamlessly transition from drinks to dinner. Alternatively, the exclusive Bernard Street entrance can be used if this works better for your wedding reception flow. Once inside, your guests will be blown away by the history that whispers through its walls.
The ballroom is spacious and well-proportioned, meaning that it can be configured in a range of layouts, from long banqueting tables to rounds. Surrounding them, enchanting gold and white walls meet subtle grey carpets to create a neutral base, and from here, your creativity can take flight. Whether you bring in extravagant floral displays or minimal decoration, a little goes a long way in this elegant ballroom venue.

The meeting room had high ceilings and natural daylight which made me feel calm and concentrated on my work. The food and service were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. All the areas I've been to were looked after and the combination of colors is very nice.

First impressions of this hotel are amazing and the entrance lobby is manned by the friendliest and most helpful staff I have encountered. Nothing was too much trouble, this was an important occasion and the staff rose to the challenge. The rooms were quiet and the bridal suite in particular is large and luxurious.
