Experience the Magic of The Golborne Collection Garden Parties at the V&A

Discover the stunning garden at the V&A London

The V&A London is renowned for its architecture and design, and its garden is no exception. The museum's garden has been carefully designed to complement the surrounding buildings and provide a seamless transition from the indoor galleries to the outdoor spaces. As you wander through the garden, you will be greeted by a variety of landscapes, each with its own unique charm and character.

The John Madejski Garden

Located at the heart of the V&A, is a hidden oasis in the midst of the city. Designed by renowned landscape architect Kim Wilkie, the garden features a sunken courtyard with a tranquil pool, surrounded by terraces and lush greenery.

 “The design is based on the traditional simplicity of a garden courtyard with the drama and flexibility of a stage set.” Kim Wilkie

The garden is named in honour of John Madejski, who funded the project. The space is adorned with sculptures and architectural features that add to its beauty, creating a sense of tranquillity and serenity for your garden party.

What special features are possible at a V&A garden party?

The ellipse pool can be drained allowing the opportunity to install a stage and then re-fill for your party. This is such an exciting feature and adds an extra special touch that is definitely worth exploring as an option. It is also possible to place a circular bar in front of the ellipse pool to mirror its shape, which also looks spectacular.

It is possible to have a drinks reception that circles the pond and a great use of the space for a large party. As the evening draws in the spectacular lighting of the gardens takes centre stage and beautifully highlights the architectural features of the museum.

Making creative and imaginative use of the space is a Golborne speciality. We love building secret little bars, and secluded seating areas around the ellipse.

When faced with a “great British summer” a back-up wet weather option is always a good idea. The beauty of the V&A is that even in the rain your party can easily be moved to the Dome, which is a stunning space in its own right.

Of course, there is always the option to add a private gallery viewing to accompany your garden party. We would also highly recommend dressing the entrance with flowers to really impress your guests.
