It is that time of year when we start noticing that when we leave the office, it is still light outside. Days are getting longer, lighter and warmer and in all honesty, we all have had enough of the winter and it is time to start dreaming about enjoying our evenings outside.

March is the best month for event bookers to start thinking about their next summer party. Here, at Prince Philip House we have the perfect outside setting for a City summer reception – whether it is our iconic terrace overlooking the Mall, or one of Waterloo Gardens on Carlton House Terrace that offer a unique summer party experience.

Here are some unique summer party ideas that would impress your guests

Waterloo West
London Event venue for outdoor Summer Parties


Dreaming about a tropical holiday and sipping mojitos on the beach? Our unique outside space – the Carlton House terrace, that overlooks the Mall and St. James’s Park, is perfect for creating the ultimate roof top beach club experience. Enhanced with sand, sun loungers and parasols with dreamy lounge music playing in the background, whilst our waiting staff serve pina coladas and delicious canapés, this unique summer party spot in the prime London location will be the one to go for on a hot day in July. And if the weather disappoints, do not worry – we have a number of bad-weather options to offer and create an indoor summer party with an underwater theme with playful food and blue lagoon cocktails. You can even enjoy our edible sand!


And lastly, as part of our summer offer this summer, we would like to introduce our unique themed summer packages designed specifically for our outdoor areas, the terrace and Waterloo Gardens: just imagine a warm summer evening when the scent of the gardens transports you to the blue lavender fields of Provence – you can hardly believe you’re in London! You can even transform our terrace into your own Maison Carrée in Nîmes!

Food stalls and bars dressed in French linen, hessian, lavender, sunflowers, French wooden wine boxes, baskets and jam jars will create a relaxed and stylish entertaining environment for a classy and fun summer party. You can explore our three summer in Provence packages
