Lauderdale House is an elegant historic building that dates back to 1582. Over the centuries, the House has been lived in and visited by a host of famous characters including Nell Gwynn, Samuel Pepys and John Wesley. Today, the Grade II* listed building offers flexible spaces for hire for wedding ceremonies and receptions, with options to accommodate both large and intimate events.

Located a short walk from Archway tube station, Lauderdale’s attractive rooms open directly onto the beautiful terraced gardens of Waterlow Park; the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. The House is licenced for civil marriages and partnerships, and couples are welcome to host either their ceremony or reception – or both – with us. Our friendly and experienced events team will do all they can to help you plan the perfect wedding day. Pink Food, our in-house catering partners, work on site and produce the highest quality food, tailoring each menu to suit your needs.

Lauderdale House is a registered charity and runs as an arts centre for the local community. The income made from weddings is invested back into education, outreach and heritage projects.

    Mrs Eljay Cotterell

    After three cancellations our wedding finally happened. Hannah, Kaye and their team were fantastic. We could not have had a more sympathetic, kind and efficient group looking after us. The food was superb and the service was faultless. We handed over our worries and knew everything would work out fine. Professional to the end they made our day a wonderful experience. Everyone said it was the best wedding ever. Thank you.

    Gorgeous historical venue in central London

    We got married at Lauderdale House in August 2020 and couldn't have been happier with our experience. We picked the venue because we wanted a historical building and love the Highgate area. The photos taken in the park after the ceremony could have been taken at a stately home in the countryside but with the advantage of being in central London. There is a really wide variety of photo locations for both the group and couple shots in Waterlow Park. The team at Lauderdale House couldn't have been more helpful, especially as we had to rearrange 3 times due to covid regulations. They were also great allowing us to visit several times and answering all of our questions, especially the chap who runs things on the day. One of my favourite parts memories is the confetti line that they suggested and helped organise after the ceremony. Although we had our reception elsewhere we were really impressed with the canapés and Prosecco that Pink Catering provided after the ceremony. We had a bus to take guests to our second venue and we had no problems parking on Highgate Hill. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this venue.

    A great day

    We wanted a relaxed wedding for 60 to 80 people and Lauderdale House was perfect for the event. The team at Lauderdale and the associated Pink Foods were all friendly, responsive and flexible. I would recommend the venue highly

    The Long Gallery (upstairs) was a stunning venue for our ceremony. The gardens are lovely, perfect for photos! Staff were so helpful, really supportive during the planning & ceremony. Excellent value for money - so worth it!!

    Best day of our lives!

    I just want to say that this is the most worthy invoice I have ever paid in my life, you can quote me! Kay and her team were phenomenal, I’m still reeling from such a fantastic weekend, so I haven’t quite got around to thanking Kay personally, but everyone raved about the food, and the service was superb!! Every penny on that corkage was worth it. Thank you so so so much. We had the best day of our lives.
