A new event space with river views in Putney.
We’ve often driven past the wonderful “Think and Thank” gate of Winchester House as it’s around the corner from our offices but have never stepped through before. It’s always a joy to discover new venues and hidden spaces in London so we were delighted to be invited by Create Food last month to the opening of this venue and loved what we found.
Winchester House is a spacious private members club with charm and character in abundance. This intimate venue will be perfect for events of approximately 150 guests and can be used all year round, though we can really see it coming into its own at summer time with its stunning private lawns that drift down to the Thames, enclosed in a half-acre wall garden, that would be perfect for receptions or team building events.
The venue is a Grade II listed building, dating back to the 17th Century and was used by Oliver Cromwell who billeted his offices there and used the house during the Putney Debates. Rumour has it that a mulberry tree planted in the garden by Cromwell still bears fruit! It’s has all the beautiful period styling you would expect from an historic venue but it has also been beautifully renovated so it’s filled with light with large windows that look out onto the river.
We welcome a new event space in this part of London, just a stone’s throw from Putney Bridge and look forward to introducing it to our clients who will love it for private parties, receptions and product launches – let the BBQ season begin!
