Regent’s Conferences & Events
The extensive versatility of Regents’ outdoor space for events is undeniably unique in the centre of London, just seconds away from the bustle of the city, balancing convenience with gratefully received seclusion.
From initial brief to seamless delivery, the vast outdoor space with four acres of landscaped lawns, together with the Secret Garden, gives the events team the best, most authentic marketing tool they could need, which paired with exceptional customer service and work ethic, ensures our top clients keep coming back. Giant inflatable assault courses, petting zoos and eclectic entertainment options keep innovation at the top of our summer party agenda.
Our offerings evolve year-on-year, and the past 12 months has been no different. Due to the increasing demand for excess space since the pandemic, our lawns have proven to be incredibly sought after. With the investment of an even bigger marquee and canopy extension this year, summer 2022 has exceeded expectation to the point that we were fully booked for the season by April.
Skylight Tobacco Dock
London’s biggest and most imaginative outdoor rooftop bar, Skylight Tobacco Dock, reopened this summer looking better than ever following a full refurb throughout!

Stationers’ Hall is a Grade 1 listed building, located in the City and a stone’s throw from St Paul’s Cathedral. Those visiting have excellent transport links, with a 5-minute walk from the Central Line tube and mainline City Thameslink trains nearby. The secluded walled garden is the bestselling feature and a hard find in Central London. The history of the Garden plays a part in the reason for choosing the venue, with a London plane tree that is over 250 years old and the location which marks the spot where heretical books, condemned by the ecclesiastical authorities, were burnt in the Tudor times.
The gardeners work tirelessly year on year to keep the flow and feel of the space and think about what plants and foliage will thrive and what colours will pop. The focus for 2022 was to create a pollinator garden, which provides many benefits, including improving the air quality and as productivity increases and the garden expands, we can watch the greenery grow and glow.
As an outdoor space, Stationers’ Hall Garden is a special space and will continue to impress those that get to experience it.
