Searcys at The Gherkin

Searcys at The Gherkin

An iconic venue with a privileged perspective of London, The Gherkin is what most people call it due to its striking architectural design. Designed by world renowned Norman Foster and Partners it is one of London's most unique and prestigious new landmarks and has been the talk of the City since it's opening in May 2004.

This is an iconic experience not to be missed. The view from the glass dome at the top of the building is simply breathtaking. Both levels combined are available to hire for memorable events, dinners or drinks receptions and weddings. And there are Private Dining Rooms to be able to make your guests feel even more special.

The event space located on the top two floor of the building, both of which are licensed to hold ceremonies are also the ideal location for dinners for up to 140 diners or 260 guests for standing receptions, with a contemporary atmosphere, professional service, fine wines and menus delivered by London's premier caterers.
