The Scene at Royal Garden Hotel Kensington West London

Built in 1965, the Royal Garden Hotel is a modern wedding venue and events hub located right beside Kensington Gardens. Its raw, urban-inspired architecture with numerous windows has a contemporary, minimalistic feel. But inside, the décor exudes sophistication –immediately evident from the lobby’s dark wood panelling, polished floors, and oversized light fixtures.

The roomy Palace Suite, with its own reception area and bar, is this luxury wedding venue’s star attraction. The neutral décor is simple yet elegant, with stunning crystal chandeliers to add that little extra something. The suite can be tailored as you wish with floral centrepieces, coloured mood-lighting, lavish sofas and a dancefloor for evening celebrations.

Alternatively, the York and Lancaster conference suites on the mezzanine beside the piano bar also double as elegant reception spaces. Slightly smaller than the Palace Suite, these airy rooms feature classic oak panelling, floor-to-ceiling windows and unrivalled city views.

Royal Garden Hotel Wedding Ceremonies

Civil ceremonies can be held at the Royal Garden Hotel, with rooms allocated based on the number of guests. If you’d prefer a church wedding, there are several options nearby. The area’s oldest church, St Mary Abbots, is just around the corner and boasts cathedral-inspired interiors. Alternatively, the quainter Christ Church Kensington is only a 10-minute walk away.

Venue Testimonials

I was here for a corporate Christmas party event in December and was quite impressed by the quality of the event. Level of service was very good and the food, especially the Welsh lamb, was excellent.

Dan C

Luxury Hotel, with great location on Kensington high street. Has car park and large event venues. Rooms on the eastern/ northern side have amazing views of Kensington park and Palace.

Fahed B

Went for a professional event held at the hotel. Food was good - event was organised by the Overseas Singaporean Unit so it might have been specially catered for. Would stay in the hotel if I were visiting London for sure.
