Few restaurants, clubs, and gardens have earned a world-renowned level of recognition. Sir Richard Branson has managed to accomplish all three feats with his Roof Gardens and Babylon Restaurant. Located above Kensington High Street, The Roof Gardens supply the Babylon Restaurant with fresh ingredients for the famous dishes they serve to hundreds each month. The rooftop is also home to the only rooftop private members’ club in London. You can only imagine the high demand the establishment incurs for wedding ceremonies and receptions. There are so many requests that guests are encouraged to call ahead before visiting the gardens to avoid crashing someone’s wedding! The Roof Gardens are a combination of three gardens, the Spanish Garden, Tudor Garden, and English Woodlands.
Over 100 employees tend to the garden in addition to gardening club members. The most spectacular fact about the gardens is that they are 75 year old and span 1.5 acres, with 70 full-grown trees to include oak and fruit trees, a flowing stream stocked with wildlife and fish, and the garden is thriving in only 1.5 meters of soil! It is enough to make you forget that you are on a rooftop. The accompanying club is gorgeous, with a contemporary modern look that any bride will love for greeting wedding attendees before the reception. Finally, the Babylon Restaurant brags with extraordinary views of the London skyline. Book the private dining room for the wedding dinner of a lifetime on the terrace overlooking the London skyline. Your champagne reception will include a mouthwatering three-course meal. Sir Richard Branson’s The Roof Gardens is the perfect, exotic location for your big day.
