The “corporate summer party” has certainly seen a strong return this year and what a fantastic offering of superb venues and variety London provides. We’ve seen everything from “roof top BBQ” venues to boat cruises, from Ice Bars to family fun days and mini festivals; it’s been a wonderful and positive season of summer events. There’s an air of positivity surrounding the economic recovery and with the great British summer in full swing it truly is time to celebrate. We’ve done our Inspirational Venues research and have come up with our top ideas that we love and are confident you would too!
