Who we are

Alternative Venues London is the venue hire department within the Greater London Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association (RFCA). We are a non-profit organisation providing funding to support Reserves and Cadets, by hiring out facilities within the RFCA estate.

We have a lot to offer with over 40 Reserve Forces and 80 Cadet sites spread across London. With the array of venues you are sure to find a venue that suits your needs. In addition, not only will you hire a unique facility, but also provide support to Reserves and Cadets.

Alternative Venues are able to provide an affordable space for you to facilitate your event. The venues range from a prestigious venue on the banks of the river Thames facing Tower Bridge, to a ‘village’ style hall on the outskirts of London. Whether you’re looking for a training space, a conference venue, filming location or a corporate dinner, we have something to fit your requirement.

“The welcome we had from the staff was warm, cooperative and welcoming and the caterers were efficient, charming and flexible. I could not have asked for better all round and I hope to be able to use the facility again and I shall tell others about it. With sincere thanks to all involved.” M. Dineen.
