Gray’s Inn gardens are known as The Walks and were originally designed in 1606 by the then Treasurer, Sir Francis Bacon, whose statue can be seen in the South Square.
The Walks remain among the largest private gardens in London: five acres of perfectly maintained park entered through a pair of impressive iron gates.
The park provides a peaceful oasis amidst the busy streets of Central London and is available throughout the year.
During the summer The Walks are equipped with a graceful and elegant marquee which is hard floored and carpeted throughout. The versatile structure holds endless opportunities for a wide variety of summer events.
The Walks and the marquee offer a distinguished setting for private and corporate parties, wedding receptions, concerts, barbecues and other outdoor events.

Standing reception: 600 pax
Dinner (round tables): 250 pax
The summer marquee structure can hold the above amounts, however the gardens are over 4 acres and so additional tentage can ordered to accommodate larger parties.
The Marquee is available to hire on weekday evenings and all day at weekends from late June and throughout July.
Out of marquee season it is possible to hold a drinks reception outside the gardens, weather permitting!
