Tobacco Dock and the Sir John Soane's Museum join LVL


As we make our way through dry-January, detox-January and veganuary - and in the wind and rain, we can look forward to a year ahead of parties, private dining, celebrations, and cocktail parties in a variety of London’s finest venues.

From summer roof-top locations and hidden courtyards, to plush ornate dining rooms, Leading Venues of London has a fantastic range of private dining options to suit every requirement and every time of year. Across the West End, throughout the City, along the South Bank and now outside London, LVL really does have the finest collection of venues.

So if you are planning any kind of private dining or party, don’t delay in finding your venue, simply email and we’ll do the rest.


With 57 spaces which can be used individually or in combination and with capacities ranging from 8 to 10,000 people, Tobacco Dock is one of the most versatile event venues in London.

2020 looks set to see some exciting developments at the venue with a major £10m investment plan kicking off with the installation of brand-new winter pavilion, linking the Great and Little Galleries. This architect-designed structure in the Great Gallery Courtyard will enable delegates and guests to move between venue two largest spaces during the coldest months of the year. 

The Quayside entrance will be undergoing a transformation, with stylish seating and planting to take our visitor experience up a level from the moment they walk through our gates. A living wall will also be established on our Quayside to provide an attractive backdrop to our iconic entrance.

Tobacco Dock also has a fabulous new Tasting Room designed to offer clients the highest levels of hospitality. The Tasting Room will be used both for clients to sample the full range of catering options for their events as well as for small meetings or as a Green Room for VIP guests and speakers as it is also moments from the Great Gallery.

Sir John Soane's Museum is a Grade I Listed building of outstanding originality. It is one of the most atmospheric and fascinating museums in London making it a fantastic venue for your dinner, drinks reception or party. The unexpected interiors display Soane's vast, eccentric collections, still arranged as they were on his death in 1837. Full of curiosities and surprises, each room is a work of art in its own right.

The many mirrors of Soane's elegant Library-Dining room bathe the rooms and its antiquities in candlelight and create a wonderfully atmospheric setting for exclusive dinners. Dinners include the elegant first floor Drawing rooms for pre-dinner drinks, a private candlelit tour of the Museum led by an expert member of staff and the atmospheric Library-Dining room for dinner.
