Seated at the corner of Russel Square is the architecturally striking Kimpton Fitzroy London, a lavish city wedding venue located in Clerkenwell, East Central London. This 1898 building was designed by Charles Fitzroy Doll, who considered traditional Britain and its history throughout his process. Surrounded by a hive activity with famous sites like the British Museum, the West End, and Covent Garden nearby, you can indulge in the lap of luxury while not straying far from the hustle and bustle of England's capital.

Facilities and Capacity

Known for superb service, attentive staff, and opulence at every turn, Kimpton Fitzroy London is impressive from the moment you step through its magnificent doors. Its Grade II Heritage-listed ballroom boasts a coffered ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a mezzanine gallery offering a view of the grand celebrations. Featuring a private entrance into our own city escape, you can be joined by 15 to 200 of your nearest and dearest to dine and dance. The Palm Court next door brings nature inside with magnificent indoor trees and a winter garden. Within this bright and airy space, you will also find a stunning Champagne bar and access to an outdoor terrace. The hotel has eight more event rooms that are equally breathtaking and available to you for other activities. After the festivities have come to an end, you are invited to spend your first night as newlyweds in one of their stylish guestrooms. The Fitzy Suite is a true gem. Offering a scenic park view, a four-poster king bed, a walk-in shower, a freestanding bath, a living room with a charming fireplace, and a stocked mini-bar, you will want for nothing. There are also accommodation packages available, so your friends and family can relax in the comfort of a beautifully finished bedroom.

From taking care of the details pre-wedding to ensuring everything goes flawlessly on the day, you will feel as though they are genuinely on your side. The gastronomic excellence is something to delight in, and you will have the opportunity to meet the Executive Chef to plan your dream menu and partake in tastings. Not only will the flavours of each plate bounce on your tastebuds, but the presentation will be a feast for the eyes.

Stunning venue

This venue speaks for itself, it’s simply beautiful.
The events team really took care of us and helped make our wedding perfect. The food was incredible too!

Excellent venue

Our wedding 7/9/13 was fantastic. For the huge, grand space, central location and quality of the food/wine/service the Russell is excellent value. Very impressive venue, extremely convenient. Samantha was excellent. Stationary, chair covers and beautiful lit candelabras on every table even in the cheapest package. No need to splash out on flowers. Good value bar (for central London). Great photo opportunities in Hotel and adjacent square. Go for it!

Absolute perfection

We had our ceremony and reception here a few weeks ago and the wedding was better than both of us could have dreamed. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was and how smoothly everything went. A few said they wanted their wedding to be there (once they got engaged!). The location was perfect for us, as we had people coming from all around London and around the world- the hotel was only 2 minutes walk from Russell Square tube. There are fabulous photo opportunities both inside/outside the hotel, and in the square across the road. One of the selling points for me was that if it rained, the venue itself was pretty so I could still get some great photos (it didn’t rain, but given which country we’re in, it’s always a major consideration whatever time of year it is!) Samantha, the hotel’s wedding co-ordinator, was fantastic throughout the whole process, she was always prompt at answering any questions I had which gave me confidence that everything would be well organised on the day. We didn’t have to worry about anything during the wedding day, they had it all under control, so we could relax and have fun! They have quite a few different packages which should suit most peoples budgets, the prices were comparable or even less expensive than some of the venues I was looking at in the London suburbs/outer London- it’s definitely worth looking into this venue. A massive thank you to Samantha, Rupak and the rest of the team!

Anniversary dinner

We got married at the Hotel a year ago and the packages include a free anniversary dinner. We went last night and were treated to an amazing meal. Whatever we wanted from the a la carte menu. Choice of wine. Glass of Prosecco.
I re-booked the honeymoon suite at a bargain price and there was a complimentary bottle of Prosecco on ice.
We have been so impressed with this venue from the start and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Beautiful venue & amazing food.

We had a wonderful time everyone complemented us on our choice of venue. The staff were great and well organised. The food was amazing, everyone loved it. Samantha and Rupak were fantastic throughtout the whole process. We held our reception dinner in the Tempus Restaurant (AKA Fitzroy Dolls Restaurant) which is fine for 100 guests but the larger rooms are incredibly beautiful. The park accross the road is perfect for photos as well as inside the hotel. The hotel room we stayed in for the night was wonderful and the Champagne and chocolates waiting for us in our room was a nice treat.
Overall i couldn't have asked for more it was wonderful.

We all had a great experience

I would like to say a massive thank you for all your moral support, help and coordination of the event of my sisters wedding.

We all had a great experience at the hotel. The wedding went smoothly and all the guest loved the hotel.

The bride and groom enjoyed the surrounding of the hotel and the photographer had the best experience taking pictures around the hotel.

I must say without your support the wedding reception would not have gone so smoothly thank you again.

I am surly going to recommend this venue to others and I will definitely come back to have my wedding reception.

We can’t recommend Hotel Russell Highly enough

Thank you for all your help at our wedding. We had a fantastic day and wonderful Reception at your Hotel. The food was lovely and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
The grand staircase also made a wonderful back-drop to our photos. We can’t recommend Hotel Russell Highly enough as a wedding venue – it was great!
