Whether you're into the formal sit-down kind of vibe with a fancy menu to boot, or a packed pub, perhaps with a dart board in the back, we've got you covered. You name it, London has it. Especially in the run-up to Christmas, when every venue goes all out to entertain the willing party-goers.

Book your crew into an immersive cocktail experience aboard a pirate ship (seriously) or something equally quirky like following a round of gin cocktails with a round of crazy golf.

All this and more are available to arrange throughout the merriest of seasons, so get to browsing our pick of the best Christmas party venues in London and settle in for some festive fun.
