About Battersea Park

Albert Bridge Road
South West London, SW11 4NJ

Located on the bank of the River Thames, Battersea Park is a 200-acre, Grade II listed historic park, containing three very special venues. Battersea Park has an expanse of open spaces, sub-tropical gardens and tree lined avenues; a wedding venue with a difference!

Hidden within this green oasis are our three unique venues; The Bowling Green Pavilion & Lawn, Pump House Gallery and The Victorian Bandstand. With their historic charm, these dynamic indoor and outdoor event spaces are suitable for a multitude of diverse occasions, Including canapés and drinks receptions, dinners, weddings, ceremonies and corporate events. These picturesque venues offer stunning views of the park, including the boating lake and botanical gardens and are easily adapted to suit any event style. All the venues are licensed for civil partnerships, civil marriages, ceremonies and live music. The Bowling Green Pavilion and Lawn and Pump House Gallery are licensed for the sale and serving of alcohol. We do not charge a corkage fee.


Located in the heart of Battersea Park, the traditional Victorian Bandstand is set within 360-degree views of luscious trees, immersing you and your guests in an outstanding outdoor setting. This picturesque location is perfect for an unforgettable ceremony, civil partnership or civil marriage. Just a stone’s throw from The Bowling Green Pavilion and Lawn and Pump House Gallery, wander over to your venue of choice and enjoy the rest of your celebrations once you're married! We have lovely wooden chairs available to hire for the ceremony, and of course you are welcome to decorate The Bandstand to suit the theme of your day!


The Bowling Green Pavilion and Lawn is situated in the centre of Battersea Park. It is a self-contained space, easily adaptable for any style of event or special occasion.
The Bowling Green Lawn is adorned with vibrant flower beds and enclosed hedging, with views of the iconic Battersea Power Station. The Bowling Green Pavilion is licensed for small ceremonies, civil partnerships and civil marriages should you prefer to marry there. Transform your event with an outdoor structure on the spacious lawn for canapés and drinks receptions, open air dinners, food trucks, BBQs, music and dancing under the stars.


The Pump House Gallery is a Grade II listed contemporary art gallery, nestled behind the boating lake, overlooking the Pump House Lawn. With an impressive flagstone terrace in front of the gallery and double height doorway, the space is floodlit with natural light throughout the year. There are multiple floors within the Pump House Gallery including a four-sided mezzanine level overlooking Gallery Three. The Pump House Gallery is suitable for ceremonies, civil partnerships, civil marriages, drinks & canapes, receptions and intimate dinners.  The flagstone Terrace can host a variety of private events with or without an outdoor structure. With unprecedented views across the park, the terrace is an ideal setting for seated dinners, drinks and canapés, receptions, ceremonies and civil partnerships. With a blank canvas throughout, you have the freedom to make the space your own! The floors in the gallery get used for a variety of things, but more commonly they’re used for a bar, cloakroom, children’s area or dancefloor. It is the only Grade 11* listed building in the Park and makes for a very memorable event!

We have a fantastic list of recommended suppliers, however you are more than welcome to bring in your own provided they have the relevant paperwork.

A day beyond our expectations
Venue Service

By Ben and Louise, on 06 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 24 Jan 2020

We chose the Pump House Gallery for our wedding. We loved the small building being hidden away in the centre of the park. Tess helped us out from day one and met with us several times to ensure planning was all going well and we had what she needed. She also worked with our florist and photographer (who she recommended) and other suppliers to make the days itself run smoothly. Tess - we can't thank you enough. The space looked incredible. We put pictures and things all over the walls and included flowers and signs to turn the space into our own. I can't recommend it enough!

Im so glad we had you to make it all come to life

By Lara & Michael, on 03 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 20 Dec 2019

Michael and I wanted to extend our biggest thanks over to you and the rest of the team for Friday. Our wedding felt like a wonderful dream to us and I know thats because your impeccable management meant that things flowed easily and seamlessly :) Thank you! Not just for the day itself but for being so attentive in the months leading up to the wedding. Although it was a very small family celebration, it meant the world to us and I'm so glad we had you to make it all come to life. We're eternally grateful and feel very lucky.

The setting is incomparably unique and wondrous

By Harriet & Fred, on 23 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2019

Fred and I would like to thank Tess Hillier and the rest of your wonderful team for making our Christmas wedding celebration so magical! The setting is incomparably unique and wondrous (not to mention having some of the sweetest and freshest air in Central London), and it was a genuine pleasure planning our day with you: Tess is a genius when it comes to solving logistical wrinkles and making sure we never once felt we were compromising. All our guests have mentioned what an incredible hidden gem The Pump House Gallery is, and your hard work, patience and good humour in accommodating every detail and transforming the venue for us meant we not only had the most spectacular send-off into married life, but we also even enjoyed the few months’ run-up to the day! We can’t even begin to convey how grateful we are for everything you did to make our twinkly December wedding day perfect for us: we are still pinching ourselves!

Helpful and calming throughout the entire process
Venue Service

By Harriet & Henry, on 23 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 16 Nov 2019

'My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Pump House in Battersea Park in November 19 and were delighted with our choice. Tess was helpful and calming throughout the entire process and took a huge amount of the logistical stress off our shoulders. The venue looked amazing and Tess continued to work tirelessly in the background throughout the course of the evening. We would like to thank her for efforts and would highly recommend Battersea to anyone considering a London wedding.'

The venue team worked closely with us throughout
