Style file: A riverside wedding, actually!

Westminster Boating Base is a unique venue, set in the attractive Pimlico Gardens and was the setting for Love Actually starring Hugh Grant and Keira Knightley. The principal function rooms are linked via the atrium and the Pavilion extends over the river, with floor-to-ceiling windows all round providing amazing views up and down the Thames. The Edgson room has a full-length covered balcony to the river and is equipped with special effects lights and speakers for music and dancing.

The spacious open-plan building lends itself to a wide variety of themeing and is highly flexible with regards to event timings. Smoking is permitted on one of the balconies.


As the Boating Base is a charity, the venue hire fee for the rental of the building goes directly to support the Trust’s charitable activities for young people. So while enjoying this perfect setting, you can be sure that you are also contributing to a worthwhile cause.
