Greenwich Yacht Club

Diana V Photography 46 +


The Greenwich Yacht Club Wedding Venue, is London’s hidden riverside wedding venue gem. The club boasts 2 starkly different venues. With an abundance of natural daylight, the river views and large outdoor decking mean that the River Rooms are a popular choice for wedding celebrations. However, we feel the venue really comes to life when the sun goes down to watch London’s Skyline light up.

- Dry hire available
- Exclusive use
- Licensed for ceremonies
- Corkage options available
- Late licence also available

Nestled between the O2 Arena and The Thames Barrier, with stunning panoramic river views taking in the Millennium Dome and the Olympic Park you can feel miles from London and be only 3 stops from London bridge station.

The club boasts 2 starkly different venues. With an abundance of natural daylight, the river views and large outdoor decking mean that the River Rooms are a popular choice for wedding celebrations. However, we feel the venue really comes to life when the sun goes down and the twinkling lights of the river increase and London’s Skyline lights up.

The Clubhouse is the only venue built “in” the Thames, raised on stilts with a bridge leading to a 2 story glass house. Views that rival anywhere in London make this an oasis from which to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. It's for this reason that the Greenwich Yacht Club is so popular for couples looking for a unique London venue.

Our bespoke wedding packages give you the opportunity to create the day you've always dreamed of having. All Greenwich Yacht Club events are managed by the professional events team at The Willo Project Ltd so you'll have a helping hand from start to finish, allowing you to enjoy the excitement of your fast approaching special day.
