Information For Battersea Park

Whether you require an intimate wedding, or a unique event surrounded by exceptional green spaces, Battersea Park provides everything you could ever require to host an unforgettable event!

The Bandstand
The Victorian Bandstand is located in the heart of Battersea Park in a stunning 360-degree setting surrounded by an arena of trees. This picturesque location is fit for an unforgettable Wedding Ceremony and fantastic photographs too! We have 100 wooden fold out chairs that you are welcome to use (and know a great company where you can hire more from should your numbers exceed this), and the table that the registrars require too; these are both included in the venue hire. This acts as your ceremony space, with a secondary venue to go to afterwards for your reception. The Bandstand can be hired for just a ceremony, but whether you choose to have only your marriage here or the marriage and a reception afterwards, you will always require the Pump House Gallery or Bowling Green as a backup, so in the case of bad weather you still have somewhere to legally say ‘I do’! You get two venues for the one price listed on the Pricing sheet.

The Pump House Gallery
The gallery is licensed for weddings, with a blank canvas throughout the four floors, allowing you to make the space your own! You are more than welcome to hire just the gallery space for your ceremony and/or reception, it’s entirely dependent on your preferences! For larger weddings, a marquee is always needed on the terrace, giving you lots of outdoor space as well as indoor! The floors in the gallery get used for a variety of things such as a bar, cloakroom, photobooth, children’s area or dancefloor. It is the only Grade 11* listed building in the Park and makes for a very memorable event!

The Bowling Green & Pavilion
This space, originally intended for the sport of Bowls is now used as a flexible event space, during the months April-October. The Bowling Green Pavilion and Lawn is also licensed and is situated just a stone’s throw from The Victorian Bandstand. Again, you are more than welcome to hire just the Bowling Green space for your ceremony and/or reception. This is our outdoor venue and suited to bigger parties with a more relaxed vibe. A large structure is put up on the green, and another popular option for this space is to get in food trucks or have a BBQ! With stunning views of Battersea Power Station, it’s a very iconic & picturesque space!

We operate on a dry hire basis, which would be exclusive to you and your party. All catering, marquees, florists and so on are not included in our venue hire. We have a fantastic list of recommended suppliers who work here in the park often, but you are also welcome to use your own suppliers provided they have the relevant documents we require. We do not charge a corkage fee and music is licensed within the park.

Everything ran smoothly
The Bandstand and Bowling Green were a wonderful setting for our wedding ceremony and picnic. Getting married surrounded by trees was truly a unique experience, for us and our guests. We were also really pleased with how Tess managed our booking – with prompt responses to questions, co-ordination with suppliers and a lot of care taken on the day to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

Such a unique venue!
We loved being able to get married at the Bandstand. It's such a unique venue, especially as our party consisted of many kids! Tess and the team made everything easy from the start to the end.

Fantastic Day
Our wedding at The Pump House Gallery was fantastic and we, and our guests, loved the venue. The venue team worked closely with us throughout the process and were on hand throughout to answer our questions. We had the most perfect day and have no hesitation in recommending the Pump House Gallery as a wedding venue.

Highly Recommend Battersea
My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Pump House in Battersea Park in November 19 and were delighted with our choice. Tess was helpful and calming throughout the entire process and took a huge amount of the logistical stress off our shoulders. The venue looked amazing and Tess continued to work tirelessly in the background throughout the course of the evening. We would like to thank her for efforts and would highly recommend Battersea to anyone considering a London wedding.

Perfect Wedding Day
Michael and I wanted to extend our biggest thanks over to you and the rest of the team for Friday. Our wedding felt like a wonderful dream to us and I know that's because your impeccable management meant that things flowed easily and seamlessly :) Thank you! Not just for the day itself but for being so attentive in the months leading up to the wedding. Although it was a very small family celebration, it meant the world to us and I'm so glad we had you to make it all come to life. We're eternally grateful and feel very lucky

Best day of our lives!
Fred and I would like to thank Tess Hillier and the rest of your wonderful team for making our Christmas wedding celebration so magical! The setting is incomparably unique and wondrous (not to mention having some of the sweetest and freshest air in Central London), and it was a genuine pleasure planning our day with you: Tess is a genius when it comes to solving logistical wrinkles and making sure we never once felt we were compromising. All our guests have mentioned what an incredible hidden gem The Pump House Gallery is, and your hard work, patience and good humour in accommodating every detail and transforming the venue for us meant we not only had the most spectacular send-off into married life, but we also even enjoyed the few months’ run-up to the day! We can’t even begin to convey how grateful we are for everything you did to make our twinkly December wedding day perfect for us: we are still pinching ourselves!

Wish we could do it all over again!
I arrived by a chauffeured Black Cab with special-access into the park where I met my husband to be at the bandstand for photos. We had the whole bandstand to ourselves, aside from the odd cute curious dog and shy dog-walker. The bandstand and joining tree-lined avenues created a beautiful surrounding for some romantic pre-wedding shots before heading to The Pump House, where I could hear guests excitedly arriving from my perfectly situated hiding place in the Well Room.

Our guests absolutely loved watching the ceremony from the balcony on the top floor in the gallery and it was truly exciting to see everyone looking down at us and give them a cheeky wave. So memorable!

The Event Team did everything possible to make sure our day went to plan, which it did, and we can’t thank them enough. We just wish we could do it all over again!

The whole day was wonderful we had an absolute blast. Thank you so much for everything you did in making it all come together, especially with our tight schedule which all ran to plan. I love one of our photos that shows guests in Gallery 3 and Gallery 4 overlooking the ceremony from the balcony. For us, this really made the gallery a truly unique venue and our guests thought so too. It's been over a month and we are still riding high remembering the day, Thanks ever so much again.

Thank you for all your hard work!
It's almost a week now. However the memories of Ilena & Draz's wedding in Battersea Park on Saturday, 7th April 2018 will remain fresh for many years to come. I would like to thank you and your team for all the hard work you put into getting the wedding not only arranged and well organised but for the excellent managing it from the beginning at 3 pm until past midnight. All came together to make the day exceptional not only for Ilena & Draz but also for all the attending guest. After days of rain you even many to get the sun to come out at exactly the right time. Quite a feat for the month of April. Congratulations!
