About Devonshire Terrace

9 Devonshire Square, London
East Central London, EC2M 4WY

Nestled in a unique surrounding in the heart of the City of London lies Devonshire Terrace, in Devonshire Square. Built in the early 1800s and used as warehouses to store luxury goods shipped from Bengal, including silk, ivory, and mother-of-pearl, the venue is steeped in history and is the ideal place to hold your wedding. To add to its grandeur, it features an original 18thcentury façade made from the soft yellow London stock brick. In 2008, the addition of the glass roof over the western courtyard was put in place during the remodelling of Devonshire Square, which offers a location suitable for all occasions and will create a picturesque setting for your special day. The venue also frames a view of The Gherkin in its atrium, adding a modern feel to such a historic place.

On bank holidays and weekends, Devonshire Square becomes the perfect tranquil private venue. Licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies, we give you the opportunity to say ‘I Do’ in the stunning Western Courtyard, and hold your celebration in the same place. Our mouth-watering European menu can be tailored to suit your requirements, and we can seat up to 160 guests, or accommodate 350 standing guests.

Trying to plan and arrange everything for your wedding by yourself can be a stressful task. That’s why we here at Devonshire Terrace take pride in tailoring your event to suit you and making your day magical. We are also one of the few venues in the City of London that holds a 3am license, so you can dance the night away and continue your celebrations right up into the early hours.

Professional, accommodating wedding
Venue Service

By Elice Nikolov, on 07 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 05 May 2019

We got married at Devonshire Terrace in May. We were so happy with how it went. Gemma did an excellent job in the run up to the day and Patsy and Henry were the perfect combination of professional and personable on the day itself. The venue are very accommodating, it was well organised and the food was brilliant. Several people told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had, one went as far as saying it was the best steak he'd ever had! Small touches like his and hers cocktails and the staff bringing canapes over to the bride and groom (because we were too busy chatting), made it extra special. We were very happy to have chosen this lovely space for our wedding. Thank you Devonshire Terrace, it was perfect.

Spring Wedding in London
Venue Service

By Patsy and Paul Forsyth, on 01 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Apr 2019

In April, we hosted our dream wedding at Devonshire Terrace. Both my husband and myself reside in the USA and despite the distance, planning for the wedding went off without a hitch. The team at Devonshire Terrace included Gemma and Nikki were so accommodating leading up to and on the day of our wedding. The bar-tending staff were gems and that was not a team member we interacted with who was nothing but lovely. We could not have asked for a better team to support us on our big day, they made us feel right at home.

Beautiful Unique Venue that our guests ADORED
Venue Service

By becky gunby, on 16 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2018

We got married at DT in Dec 2018 and can't recommend it enough! The food was just as good as it was at the tasting (which was delicious) and so many of our guests said it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding. Gemma, the event coordinator, was always so quick to respond to my many, many questions and was always so lovely during our planning meetings. Nikki, Claire, Henry and their team made sure everything went so smoothly on the day, allowing us to fully relax on the day. Everyone was so lovely and friendly and were so helpful to any requests asked. Again, we had so many guests comment on the level of service. Everyone was so impressed. It's such an impressive venue, it doesn't even need much decor to make it look stunning! LOVED every minute of our day at DT.

Amazing Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Laura P, on 05 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Dec 2018

Devonshire Terrace is amazing - nothing was too much trouble for the team, Gemma was brilliant throughout the process and really made us feel confident and comfortable. The venue looked brilliant and the staff on the night were amazing too. I couldn't fault anything and highly recommend using this venue!

Everything was Spot On
Venue Service

By Farah & Adam, on 29 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

Thank you so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect and better than we even imagined or hoped. You turned the venue into the most beautiful and romantic space and everyone said they had the time of their lives, that the food was delicious and that the service was perfect. Your attention to detail was spot on and you and your team were so incredibly hard working and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you sooooo much.

Summer 2018 Wedding
Venue Service

By Tom & Leanne, on 05 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2018

An unbelievable venue for your biggest day. We had our wedding here in August 2018 and it couldn't have gone any better. Gemma was fantastic with us in the planning stages, organising everything just the way we wanted it - she handled all of the admin stuff (dealt with the band/DJ, parking on the day etc.) so we didn't have to worry. Claire, Henry & the team were spot on during the day, nothing was ever too much hassle for anyone. The venue itself is just fantastic, giving you the best of both worlds (an outdoor feel during the day but a cosy, intimate shindig in the evening). Top notch all round - highly recommended. Cheers for making it so special for us! x

Our dreams come true

Thank you SO much for all your hard work for our wedding last Sunday. The whole event ran like clockwork (except for me being late, sorry!!!), your staff were wonderful & unobtrusive, the venue looked amazing & we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!! Thank you for all your help in getting us to our big day & for all your help on the day itself.

Amazing day!
Venue Service

By Amy & Dom, on 05 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2018

Dom and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help with our wedding on Saturday. We had the most amazing day with all our friends and family and we are really grateful for all your efforts. Everyone was amazed at the venue, the food and just the general set up of the whole day. Without you guys and your great team it wouldn’t have been possible!

Incredible from Start to Finish
Venue Service

By Stephanie & George, on 25 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2017

I would highly recommend this venue to everyone - the venue, the staff, the food, the drinks it was all amazing. From the initial viewing to 2am on our wedding day the Devonshire Terrace staff were great. We planned our wedding from the US but they made everything so easy and they were accommodating in everyway. The venue speaks for itself - its stunning. The day flowed so well with the 3 spaces. I would recommend Sunday weddings - although not usually a first choice, for this venue it is more than ideal. You pretty much have the whole complex to yourself - there is very little pedestrian traffic anywhere within Devonshire Square, making for lots of original photo opportunities. The food and drink topped the day off. When we went for the food tasting is was great, however we didn't expect all 50 meals to taste as amazing as they did. I had numerous guests comment on how good the food was (including those with special dietary requests!). The cocktails are awesome too - I couldn't get enough of the London Spritz! Overall I cannot recommend this venue enough - coupled with the Devonshire Club hotel (just seconds from the terrace) they made our day a wonderful one to remember!

Stress free wedding!
Venue Service

By Paul Mallan, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2016

We had our wedding here in October 2016. The venue itself is fantastic, very contemporary, ideal if you want a slightly less formal feel to the day. As others have said, Nina and the rest of the team are excellent, every little detail is covered. We didn’t lift a finger all day long, everything was taken care of and completely stress free – exactly what you need on your wedding day!

Stunning venue, amazing staff, fantastic wedding
Venue Service


I cannot overstate how amazing the team at Devonshire Terrace were throughout. During the planning and booking stage, Nina was so helpful and knowledgeable, completely putting our mind at rest over little queries and requests. On the day itself, the team were amazing - they went above and beyond in organsing the table settings, aisle etc. Now to the wedding itself... I have had so many comments on the venue from guests ''where did you find such a gem'', ''I want my wedding to look like this'' etc. I was married in November, yet had the luxury of getting married outside, and people were shrugging off their coats and sat on the terrace until midnight! The food was amazing, and again got many comments from the guests on how much they enjoyed the food. I really cannot put into words how brilliant this venue, and their staff are.
