Venue Hire

South Hampstead’s venues are situated in leafy residential streets, well-connected to postcodes across London. Modern, state-of-the-art spaces as well as atmospheric rooms in Grade-II listed buildings provide a diverse array of options, whatever your requirements.

Please click on the venues below for more detailed information. Availability is predominantly during school holidays, evenings and weekends. Please enquire about special rates for charities.

If catering is required for your event, we will put you in contact with the school’s caterers so that your arrangements can be made separately.

All proceeds from Waterlow Hall lettings will support the school’s bursary campaign, funding outstanding opportunities for bright young women who could not otherwise afford a South Hampstead education.
