The Queen’s House is one of the most iconic London wedding venues around. Formerly a Royal residence with stunning views over the River Thames and Canary Wharf, it’s now part of the Royal Museums in Greenwich, and available for exclusive hire […] The perfectly cubed Great Hall is a beautiful setting for the wedding breakfast, and the Tulip Stairs provide a memorable entrance for wedding guests.
