From private dining to virtual experiences, office parties and COVID-safe, large-scale Christmas events.
Happy Christmas everyone! Okay, it’s not quite Christmas yet, but since it’s September it’s time to get planning your Christmas events.
Let’s dive in with our 12 Venues of Christmas, starting with Skyloft in London.

The sensational Skyloft is housed in a brick-walled den 28 storeys above old London Town, with stunning views of the city in a truly unique environment.
The Christmas offerings range from a three course meal to all-inclusive drinks, a drinks reception, photo scenes, and various different food stations, with options to suit your budget incorporating any of the above.
And of course, there’s a DJ spinning the perfect tracks for a Christmas boogie.

The Underglobe offers a remarkable, magical, mystical party experience in an enchanted underground forest.
Located under the iconic Globe Theatre in London, The Underglobe boasts a private riverside entrance with lots of surprises along the way. This is an incredible, versatile venue perfect for large-scale Christmas shenanigans.
3 – The London Bake
The London Bake provides two immersive baking experiences, with a digital and physical option available. First is the marquee option for the “Ultimate Bake Off Event”, with 12 baking stations and a professional patisserie chef by your side. This means that no previous baking experience is necessary.
You can also book the digital bake for a virtual experience. Here, ingredients are sent via post and a professional patisserie chef leads the session, judges the winners, and dishes out prizes!

Coqbull London provides a fantastic 3-course seated menu and standing menu.
With Christmas Crackers to start and some of the best burgers, popcorn chicken and wings you could imagine, this one is ideal for a unique, street-food style Christmas dining experience.
