Ravens Ait Island

Ravens Ait Island, Portsmouth Road, Kingston Upon Thames, KT6 4HN

Ravens Ait Island is a unique event venue on the Thames in Kingston Surrey with a capacity of up to 400.

In the middle of the Thames, between Surbiton, Kingston and Hampton Court, the island of Raven’s Ait offers the convenience of a London location with the tranquillity of the countryside.

Ravens Ait Island prides itself on first class conference and meeting spaces which can hold up to 400 delegates.

All rooms offer a plethora of room layouts, capacities and views of the river. Whether it is our stunning Marquee overlooking the Thames or our Britannia Suite with its panoramic views of the river, Ravens Ait can provide you with the tools to make your event one that will get your delegates talking!

Ravens Ait is ideal for a wide range of events, ranging from your day conferences and meetings to your special events such as summer team building and Christmas parties! Our versatility is a cornerstone of what we do and your dedicated event co-ordinator will do everything they can to put across your vision.

As well as a forging success in the Wedding and Corporate markets, Ravens Ait Island is the emerging spot for a drink with a difference and the team at Ravens Ait are always looking for new and innovative ways for the general public to use the space without attending one of our fantastic private events! For example, Friday June 5th see’s the island opening its doors for a Pop Up Cinema on our stunning front lawns! From April, the bar will be open on the island for you to come and grab a drink and enjoy those stunning sunset views of Kingston from its most unique vantage point, the middle of the Thames! The general public are also a big part of Ravens Ait’s future plans, so stay tuned for new and interesting public events such as our 3 day beer festival, St Patricks Day and of course the return of the Isle Of Fright on Halloween!

Reviews

**Apologies I have had to submit my review a second time as previously gave the venue the incorrect star rating**

I recently organised our annual management sales & marketing meeting at Ravens Ait. I was introduced to the venue by the Island's Business Development Manager Michelle Chilcott, who is absolutely fantastic and really goes the extra mile for you. I couldn't be more grateful that she introduced me to this wonderful venue.

The event was a 2 day meeting with a gala dinner on the 2nd night. The venue's Events manager Jessica was very helpful leading up to the event with all the finer details considered and the operational running and execution of the event was faultless.

We found the pricing structure to be excellent value and were pleased that the venue were able to offer a bespoke quotation built around our individual needs and more importantly to budget.

When finding a venue for this annual meeting, I am always looking for somewhere that is something different and willing to take on board the bespoke requirements for our team. They more than met these requirements.

Our delegates had fantastic feedback, the conference facilities and WiFi were excellent. The food was substantial and of good quality with plenty of variety. Alongside the fabulous buffet style lunches and wonderful evening meal we were served for our gala dinner, it was refreshing to experience a venue that catered well for the AM & PM breaks as too!! We didn't feel like we had the leftovers from afternoon tea. In the past this is where we have been let down and it was a great relief that Ravens Ait and their recommended caterers were able to overcome this.

The entire event ran to schedule from start to finish, with the venues team responding very well to some last minute changes we had and I was certainly appreciative of their flexible and helpful attitude.

Secured rates for accommodation was available for us at the comfortable Holiday Inn across the road, which enabled me to choose a venue without onsite accommodation with complete ease of mind.

Delegates were wowed by the small boat trip across the thames, which conveniently lasts long enough to be impressed but not so long that you could get cold or bored. The Venue organised a larger boat to bring delegates across in one trip on mass and then had a ferry man on duty the entire time we were on the Island in case anybody wanted to pop back to the mainland!

For the conference we were allocated the Thames Suite & Britania which were lovely bright spaces amongst the peaceful atmosphere of the Island and really aided the delivery of the meeting. On the second afternoon we moved out to the Island's front lawns for some team building activities which were a great success and a wonderful suggestion from Michelle & Jessica, thank you.

Our last evening was the Gala Dinner and awards ceremony for 200 which took place in the larger Marquee. A wonderful space, the room looked stunning, the food was sensational and we had a great Disco later on. The marquee has a bar inside as well so the event flowed perfectly without segregating any of the delegates. Also a special mention to the dedicated general manager of the Island Richard, who was on hand to assist with technical audio assistance. I would need to mention here that their was no issue with the Island's equipment, it was more that Richard was very helpful in demonstrating how to use it!!!

All in all the meeting received the best feedback we have ever had in this is entirely down to the hard work and diligence of the exceptional team at this quirky and wonderful venue. We will not hesitate to return and have already held the date for next year and are thinking about having our Christmas party here!

I could not fault this venue and would not hesitate to recommend.
