Our beautiful gardens offer you and your guests your own private space within Regent’s Park. The York Lawns comprise four acres of lush foliage, shrubs, flowers and trees which create a magical setting for summer parties for up to 1,200 guests. An elegant, ivory-lined marquee comes with every booking ensuring your event will reach its full potential whatever the weather.
As well as summer parties, the York Lawns are a popular choice for team-building away days and family fun days. The large grassed area gives organisers plenty of space for games, networking and catering, plus the grounds’ proximity to Baker Street tube means travel for guests is quick and easy. Lots of our clients who need to include a presentation as part of their corporate event also hire our lecture hall. Our outdoor area is available all summer and most weekends throughout the rest of the year.
Catering and entertainment
The chefs from our in-house catering team – Vacherin – are seasoned professionals when it comes to catering outdoor events. Menus are particularly creative and include a range of street food stalls with choices ranging from a New York Dirty Mac Bar and a slider bun bar to a Traditional Hog Roast. With our barbecue options, organisers can choose from Caribbean, American, Moroccan or British cuisines and there are loads of fun extras like a Pick ‘n’ Mix Sweet Shop and an Ice Cream Trike.
The size of the grounds here means organisers can really go to town with entertainment and games for their summer events. From croquet and giant inflatables, to live music and archery, we have a huge range of options that will guarantee your guests an event to remember for years to come.
We understand that an organiser hosting a specialist event might want to hire-in specialist caterers, so we also offer the York Lawns for dry hire on a number of Sundays and Mondays from June to mid-September. Please contact the Conferences office and speak to one of the coordinators, who will always do their best to accommodate.
