From business conferences and evening receptions, to summer parties and weddings, Helix and Iris can be hired for standing receptions for up to 260 guests, and seated events for 140. Each year Searcys at The Gherkin partners with international and UK brands to bring a one-off summer pop-up to the iconic skyscraper, providing a memorable theme for your summer party.

The five private dining rooms located on level 38 are ideal for dining as well as small, targeted events in the heart of the City. Sitting high above London the rooms come with spectacular views, catering excellence and impeccable service.
