The Roof Gardens

About The Roof Gardens

The Roof Gardens is Sir Richard Branson’s urban oasis in the heart of London; a piece of genuine fantasia set on the 6th floor above Kensington High Street. The venue is surrounded by one and a half acres of themed gardens which are a stunning backdrop to your exclusive event - the Spanish Garden, the Tudor Courtyard and the English Woodland Garden which houses the famous flamingos! The Roof Gardens' can cater for everything from a daytime conference for 30 guests to a cocktail reception for 500 guests and everything in between, including rooftop BBQs during the summer. Shared Parties are also available for those who don't wish to hire The Roof Gardens exclusively. In summer time, Tudor BBQs are held in the Tudor Garden on Friday and Saturday nights where guests enjoy a 3 course BBQ menu and entrance to The Roof Gardens members Club for groups of 8 to 110 people. During the festive season, Christmas Shared Parties take the effort out of organising a party with all inclusive buffet and seated dinner menu packages for 10 - 140 people.
