Beale Park, Lower Basildon in Berkshire is a unique venue set amongst 350 acres of stunning parkland, nestling on the banks of the River Thames.

We can cater for a wide range of indoor and outdoor events, including:

  • Wedding receptions
  • Private functions
  • Corporate conferencing
  • Seminars
  • Team building
  • Public shows

– the list goes on!

We can offer two prime areas at Beale Park in which to hold your event:



The lands surrounding Beale Park Wildlife Park & Gardens provide a beautiful & unique setting for any outdoor event; the centre piece being a stunning seven-acre lake with direct access for boats to and from the River Thames. Access by car is also very easy.

Extensive car parking can be provided and overnight accommodation can also be arranged in glamping tents on site or hotels in the area.

This outdoor space is ideal for larger private and corporate events as well as for commercial show organisers wishing to consider this venue for their own public events.

There is no limit (within reason) to the size & duration of an event in the event field.

Services such as marquees, power, washrooms, pontoons and security will need to be brought in by the event organiser. We do however have a list of preferred suppliers for most services, who have previous experience of the site, should this be required.
