What we're about

If you’re looking to meet new friends in London then our social events group may just be the right place for you.

You'll not only get the chance to meet new people, but you'll also be able to sample every type of activity that involves socialising; Nights out, Walks, Museums, Live Music, Treasure Hunts, Day Trips, Galleries, Parties, Picnics, Dance Nights, Live Comedy, travel etc.

Our social group is also free to join and 95% of our events/meetups are also free to attend.

Friends in London is now one of the largest and best attended Meetup groups in the UK. However, as we've grown we firmly believe we've remained as welcoming as ever - at least that's the constant feedback we receive time and time again. Friends in London Meetup Group was founded by brothers Martyn Lloyd and Terry Lloyd 12 years ago who both still continue to host every event.

If you're new to the meetup scene we thoroughly recommend searching through the past events of as many meetup groups as possible. Check out the independent reviews/ratings of past events and then make a decision from there as to whether you think that meetup would be suitable for you. If you do that research then we just may make your list of appropriate groups :-)

Please note that members must be adults over the age of 18 to attend our events. However, providing members are adults, all ages are welcome at our events.

Also feel free to join over 5,000 members who follow us on Facebook by 'Clicking Here'.

Please note that before attending any of our events, it is compulsory to read and agree with our Friends in London Meetup Group terms and conditions (including disclaimers). These can be read by 'Clicking Here'.

We hope to see you soon at a future event if you decide to join :-)

Martyn Lloyd and Terry Lloyd organise Friends in London Meetup Group on behalf of Trips from London Ltd.

Friends in London Party in West Kensington + Live DJ at the Famous Three Kings

Join our Friends in London Meetup Group for an exclusive party at the Famous Three Kings - directly next to West Kensington Tube Station. We have privately hired both the 'dance-floor bar' and 'middle bar'. Therefore, this will be an exclusive event where half the venue will be privately hired for this Friends in London exclusive party.
Both membership to our Friends in London community meetup group and entry to this event are free.

There'll be a live DJ performing just for our meetup group in our privately reserved 'dance-floor-bar' - playing a wide variety of popular music (a combination of 70's 80's 90's 2000's and modern chart/party hits). The middle bar will have a different atmosphere where there will only be lower volume background music. This provides a great combination for both socialising in the middle bar and partying in the dance-floor-bar.

This venue is one of the biggest, best and most famous pubs in the UK. In recent years the Three Kings Pub has been a winner of the title of Best Sports Pub in the UK by the prestigious Great British Pub Awards - although there will be no sport showing in our private party area :-)

The organisers (Martyn and Terry) will be waiting to greet you after you walk through the main entrance and directly ahead into the middle-bar. There is only one entrance to the venue and our privately reserved bars in the venue will be signposted 'Friends in London'.

We highly recommend new members arrive as close to the 7:30 pm start as possible (ideally before 9:00 pm). Please note that while we kindly ask new members to arrive before 9:00 pm - please can everyone arrive by 10:00 pm at the very latest to gain entry. We made this decision due to feedback from members, as an early arrival time improves the socialising aspect of a 'meetup' environment for everyone. The DJ will start at 9:30 pm and the event will finish at midnight. The dress-code is also smart/casual.

Note: If you have Covid or symptoms of Covid, please do not attend this event.

By the act of attending our events, members confirm they have read and agreed with our Friends in London Meetup Group terms and conditions (including disclaimers). These can be read by visiting the following page: https://www.meetup.com/friends-in-london/pages/20653696/Terms_and_Conditions/
