About London

You could describe London as England's New York or France's Paris. England's capital is undoubtedly an intriguing place and one of the global destinations that are tourist magnets. Still, so many other aspects make London one of the world's culturally vibrant cities.

London is where you'll find three of the top ten galleries and museums on the global list. The city has an estimated 857 art galleries, showcasing its profound appreciation for art, perfect for organizing creative events.

They say that Londoners are a cross-section of people who have immigrated from across the planet, hence the 300-plus different languages spoken within the city. This diversity is celebrated in about 200 festivals annually, including the Mayor's Thames Festival, one of the largest and biggest street festivals in Europe. From Harry Potter to A Clockwork Orange, the city has also hosted several film productions, further highlighting London as a prime location for unique venues.

Start your search for unusual event spaces in London with these tips, whether you're looking for a versatile space in East London, quirky venues in Central London, secret gardens in North London, or a secret bar in Notting Hill.

The unique events of the 1955 comedy The Ladykillers unfolded at the King's Cross townhouse with exposed brick walls, where a criminal gang congregated to make their nefarious plans.
