Where Do I Start When Booking My Office Christmas Party In London?

The easiest place to start is to work out what budget you have available per person and overall, as this will help you to consider what you can spend up to. From this point, you might want to get an idea of what you would like included, such as a three-course meal or whether you would like unlimited drinks, or even a certain form of entertainment.

The various venues are incredibly helpful if you have any questions, so simply put in an enquiry and they will come back to you with the answers to your questions.

What Day Of The Week Works Best For A London Christmas Party?

This all depends on how flexible you can be. Friday is the most commonly booked, so people can go straight from work, but later you leave it to enquire, more likely most of the Fridays in December and November will already be booked. As long as you contact as soon as possible, you should be able to get a date of choice, but many brands have stated in the past that Thursday worked best for them, as it is often easier to book, but still near the weekend. Considering a lot of the venues are hotels, they are often heavily booked up for Saturday nights, but again this all falls down to the individual hotel and you should enquire as early as you can to ensure you get the booking.
