Located on the bank of the River Thames in Wandsworth, England, Battersea Park is a 200-acre historic park containing three magnificent wedding venues. The South West London property has an expanse of open spaces, sub-tropical gardens and tree-lined avenues that ensure an enchanting and unique experience.

Facilities and Capacity

Hidden within the green oasis that is Battersea Park are The Bowling Green Pavilion & Lawn, the Pump House Gallery and The Victorian Bandstand. With their retro charm, these dynamic indoor and outdoor event spaces are suitable for a multitude of diverse occasions. The Bowling Green Lawn is adorned with vibrant flower beds and enclosed hedging, with views of the iconic Battersea Power Station. It is licensed for small ceremonies, civil partnerships and civil marriages. The Pump House Gallery is a Grade II listed contemporary art gallery nestled behind the boating lake and overlooking the Pump House Lawn. With an impressive flagstone terrace in front of the gallery and a 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 weddings, drinks and canapes, receptions and intimate dinners. Finally, situated in the heart of the estate, the traditional Victorian Bandstand is set within 360-degree views of luscious trees. Here, you and your guests will be immersed in an outstanding outdoor setting.

A day beyond our expectations

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!

Wedding at the Pump House Gallery

Having our wedding at Battersea park was very special, and the park made it an amazing venue. However, it was like pulling teeth to get the team to reply to emails and answer my questions. On the day the pump house was FILTHY. The toilets were disgustingly dirty, the back where the caterers work was rat infested - totally unhygienic. Really disappointed with the standard of the Pumphouse.

This is basically run by crooks

We were due to get married here but could not go ahead due to Covid-19. We had parted with thousands of pounds but the only solution they offered us was moving our August date to March (for an outdoor wedding in the UK). They were utterly unsympathetic to our situation and were unwilling to budge and offer us a refund... despite incurring zero costs!

They definitely showed their true colours and it does shine some light on the kind of crooks that work in some our public entities. On the other hand, almost all of the private vendors that we were contracted with were incredible... they, by and large, completely refunded us, despite the financial hardships they must have been facing. We even offered to compromise with a few that were really struggling to stay afloat.

It's appalling that it was council-backed EnableLC who gave us the least support despite not being in the same precarious situation as a lot of those small businesses.

I've given it some time before leaving this review. It's good to let the dust settle. But upon reflection, I still feel just as exploited by EnableLC, Battersea Park, and Wandsworth Council as I did back then.

Avoid like the plague. A morally bankrupt organisation.

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

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

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

'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.'

Truly exciting day!

Our guests absolutely loved watching the ceremony from the balcony on the top floor in the gallery and it was truly exciting to see everyone looking down at us and give them a cheeky wave. So memorable.
