Gunnersbury Park FAQs

Venue hire at Gunnersbury Park includes exclusive use of the Rothschild Rooms within Gunnersbury Park House and / or the Orangery and the Temple depending on the package you opt for. Our small and dedicated hospitality & events team, consisting of security, house staff and your very own event manager, is with you every step of the way - from early stages right through to the day of the event.
Hire of the Orangery includes additional night-time festoom lighting illuminating the pathway to and from the Orangery and toilet access in Foxes Yard. Luxury portaloos can be provided although may be at an additional charge, again depending on the package you choose.

Catering, production and lighting services are all provided by companies on our accredited lists. Gunnersbury Park House is a Grade II* listed building which has recently been restored to its former glory and, to ensure that it stays in a beautiful condition, we ask that you choose from our accredited suppliers on these lists.
Having an accredited supplier list allows us to recommend those companies who we know provide service to the high standards of delivery that we expect for all our clients. They know our venue well and will be happy to suggest ideas for what works well in addition to helping create your vision.

Like many other historic venues, nothing can be attached to any of the walls, ceilings or floors
internally or externally in our buildings. Freestanding decorations or stands are recommended but please consult your event manager for further information. Smoking, naked flames and candles are not permitted within the sites but there are plenty of lovely alternatives that
are available.
We have a recommended list of florists who have previously provided stunning arrangements for events and who are familiar with our venues. However, if you prefer, you are able to select your own. Please discuss with your event manager for further details on guidelines for working in our buildings.

You are welcome to bring a band or DJ of your choice. Again, please discuss this with your event manager and they will be able to provide you with details on restrictions and guidelines.

The House is also a museum and is open to the public; Tuesday – Sunday from 10am – 4pm. Please note this may change depending on any events taking place in the venue. It is possible to view the House outside of the above times by special arrangement so please speak to one of the team about this and they’ll be happy to advise.

After you have had the chance to meet with one of our event managers and take a look around Gunnersbury Park, you can hold a date provisionally with us at no extra fee whilst you contact our various suppliers to get a better idea of how much your event at Gunnersbury will cost. Once you are ready to proceed, a confirmation booking form will be sent to you for completion. At this point an event manager will be assigned for your event and all relevant paperwork will be raised and sent over to you.
The paperwork will include a copy of our contract together with an invoice for 50% deposit of your venue hire fees. The final 50% payment is required no later than 6 weeks before your chosen date. Please note this is flexible depending on the event. Please speak to your designated event manager to discuss your options.

You can get married outdoors in England as long as it takes place under a fixed licensed structure. In Gunnersbury Park, we do not have any fixed structures that are able to accommodate outside.

Dogs are not allowed in the house unless they are guide/assistant dogs. Dogs are permitted for outdoor events only and should be discussed with your event manager in advance.

Gunnersbury Park is set in 72 hectares of stunning public parkland with a variety of options for incredible photo backdrops. Highlights include the sweeping South lawns, the North lawns and our beautiful Italianate garden. The South and North lawns are located to the front and rear of the House and can be used for an array of events. Please see our pricing list for further information. The Italianate garden is situated directly behind the Temple whilst the front of the Temple sits on the round pond and offers impressive views of the park beyond. Both areas are licensed for drinks receptions.

Drones are not allowed in the park as it is a public space unless specific permission has been granted and licences are in place. Please speak to our event managers for further information.
