With a stunning Mayfair location, elegant Edwardian interiors and outdoor terrace with views to Hyde Park, No.4 Hamilton Place is a unique London venue for a memorable wedding celebration
No.4 Hamilton Place is a London gem available for exclusive-hire wedding ceremonies and celebrations. Located in Mayfair just across the way from Hyde Park, and with the atmosphere of a grand and elegantly designed Edwardian townhouse, its versatile and luxurious venue spaces are perfect for capital parties.
You can’t fault the location or the magnificent architecture of No. 4 Hamilton Place. This is a townhouse steeped in British history. Once home of the Duke of Wellington, it has been headquarters of the Royal Aeronautical Society since 1939 and is packed with reminders of the history of aviation and its pioneers. With a swish Airbus basement business suite used for conferences, members’ meetings and business events, there are a series of grand and intimate spaces across the rest of the property that are favoured for weddings and parties. These include the spectacular Argyll Room – once the townhouse’s main drawing room – with glorious bow windows, gilt-decorated cornicing and chandeliers, as well as a superb adjoining roof terrace that catches the afternoon sun and has views over Hyde Park.
This is a top London address, and capable of hosting a grand or intimate celebration. The Marshall of Cambridge (capacity up to 60) offers lovely proportions and light and airy decor. It is located on the ground floor, giving easy access to the building’s foyer and the baroque staircase – the perfect spot for wedding photographs. For larger wedding ceremonies, the Argyll Room (capacity 100) offers lavish high ceilings and great views, especially as guests can spill out onto the terrace for drinks or live music. This also has an ante room that can be incorporated if needed. Larger still is the ground-floor Bill Boeing Room, a contemporary blank-canvas space that can hold up to 250 people for a ceremony and is also perfect for dinner and dancing.
For intimate wedding breakfasts or receptions, the Handley Page or Sopwith rooms on the second floor are lovely choices. While the surroundings here are all about period glamour, No.4 Hamilton Place has all modern luxuries, including air conditioning.
With expertise in designing parties, weddings and other high-profile events, the in-house events team can design your perfect package, also working with carefully selected wedding and event suppliers to take the stress out of sourcing the small but vital details, from DJ to flowers. While bespoke is all part of the service here, there are also great package options. A reception for 80 guests (weekend dates), including exclusive use of the property, three-course wedding breakfast, canapés, fizz and a night’s stay for the newlyweds at a Mayfair hotel partner costs from £139 plus VAT per person. Menus at No.4 are by top event caterers Dish, with focus on fresh ingredients and contemporary dining, so expect fabulous party food.
The glorious Downton flavour of the Edwardian interiors is guaranteed to wow your guests. And the icing on the cake is the outdoor terrace, a unique and idyllic spot for an alfresco summer party – with the option for elegant canopy or marquee. Whichever venue space you choose at No.4 Hamilton Place, this is an ultra-convenient central London location for guests, with easy access to major London airports and with Hyde Park Corner and Green Park Underground stations a short walk away, plus rail links from Victoria. The availability of so many world-class hotels in the locality makes this a top spot for a smart wedding right in the heart of the capital’s most prestigious quarter.
