Founded in 1984, The Chelsea Gardener is an oasis of green in the centre of Chelsea. More than just a garden centre, The Chelsea Gardener provides a unique venue space for special occasions, parties and exhibitions. Intimate yet spacious, The Chelsea Gardener offers beautiful indoor and outdoor areas suitable for any event and sure to impress every time.
The stylish showroom is available all year round and seats up to 150 guests for formal sitting down dining and up to c.250 for standing receptions. Vibrant and spacious, this distinctive venue is dressed with the very best houseplants and trees to create memorable evening events with a difference.
The canopy and decked areas provide the perfect outdoor spaces and are highly sought after especially during the summer months, though it is very well protected and suitable for winter months.
Ideal for evening cocktail receptions and exhibitions, the outdoor area is elegantly dressed and surrounded by colourful plants and trees. Guests are invited to wander and enjoy the beautiful garden. This covered area can accommodate up to c.250 people for standing drinks or 150 guests for more formal seated dinners.
Our newly installed Orangery by Hampton Conservatories is available for private receptions of up to 60 people and small sit-down dinner parties for up to 30 people. It offers a very unique, beautiful and exclusive intimate space in the middle of our garden for small parties and events. It is also ideal for a pre-dinner drinks reception followed by a sit-down dinner in our larger spaces either inside or under the canopy. It is also possible to hire the surrounding garden area which would allow for an additional 40 guests at a stand-up drinks reception.
The Chelsea Gardener offers contemporary, elegant and ultimately engaging event spaces for any occasion; from small gatherings and summer BBQs to grand wedding receptions or corporate events. This unique venue is available for evening events 7 days a week, all year round.
Hire includes venue only and catering must be supplied separately. We will provide you with our preferred list of caterers who have experience in catering at our venue. Background live or recorded music is permitted but we don’t have a music license for dancing parties.
