Heavy-duty gazebos for all sorts of purposes. If you're looking for outdoor rain and sun protection, we've got the right solution for every occasion. Each model is watertight and UV resistant.

Our gazebos – a large variety of designs and features

All of the products on this page including pop up gazebos are available as gazebos with sides. Side panels or curtains can be added or removed, or simply rolled up, allowing you full flexibility in how you design your shelter.

For our metal gazebos, you have a choice of different materials, both for the frames and for the canopy. Gazebo tarpaulins can be made of PE, PVC, or high-performance polyester with a PVC coating. In addition, garden gazebos can be purchased with a hardtop canopy made of polycarbonate panels. The design of all of our weatherproof gazebos alongside the high quality materials used ensures that they are waterproof even in heavy rain.

It's important to understand your rights and obligations in relation to planning permission and permitted developments. We've put together a comprehensive planning permission guide for UK gazebos with advice relating to both private gardens and business premises.

Guide: How to find the right gazebo or the perfect marquee

Pop Up Gazebos: foldable, stable and waterproof!

There isn't an outdoor shelter as practical and mobile as these gazebo tents, and none can be set up so quickly. Our heavy duty easy up gazebos with a foldable awning can be easily transported in a carry bag. They can also be set up without tools and used within a few minutes. They are 100% water-resistant and available in many sizes and colours. Here you will find a party gazebo that enhances and complements your outdoor space like no other! And don't forget, all of our pop up gazebos come with free delivery!

This is how pop up gazebos are most often used:

  • As a stall for flea, farmers' or Christmas markets. Pop up gazebos can be set up particularly quickly, and they offer optimal weather protection for sales stalls. Small gazebos are generally prefered, like our 3x3m, 3x4.5m and 3x6m models.
  • As shade or shelter at parties or barbecues in your own garden. Here, either in 3 x 3m for a small gathering, or 3 x 6m (perhaps to provide shade for a buffet).
  • As sun and rain protection at sporting events, for example as a canopy for the substitutes' bench.
  • As professional gazebos for event agencies, restaurants or amusement parks. The spacious 4x4m large gazebos are ideal where members of the public are socialising together.
  • and much more besides!

What are the materials that are used in pop up tents?

A gazebo or tent generally consists of two key components: the Tarpaulin and Frames. We use either 100% waterproof high-performance polyester with a PVC coating, or a more heavy duty PVC as tarpaulin material for our folding gazebos. The legs and roof frames are available in either Aluminium or Steel. You can read more about the different materials, including their relative advantages on our overview page.

What size pop up gazebo do you need?

We offer affordable waterproof folding gazebos ranging from 3x3m up to 4x4m in our online shop. If you'll be using a table under the canopy, a good rule of thumb is to allow at least a metre both in front, and behind the table. Do you need a waterproof gazebo as a roof for a sales booth, for example? In that case, it's best to measure everything that is to be placed underneath. If you just need a place with high sun protection for up to 4 people, the 3x3 m size will be just right for your needs.

Side panels: For extra shade or a privacy

Side panels on pop up gazebos can serve as privacy and/or weather protection. Even if you only need a gazebo tent to provide shade, side panels will be useful when the sun begins to set. Sidewalls can be attached to one or more sides of the pavilion. Make use of semi-open panels, or sides with windows and doors as required. These give you a view of the garden, but also serve as an extra benefit as rain, wind or privacy protection. Side panels are inlcuded in the price listed for each product on our site.

Tip: With panoramic windows, there is also an integrated roller blind for privacy when you need it.

Marquees: A sheltered space to party where you want it

No more cancelling outdoor get-togethers due to weather: Our party tents offer perfect 100% watertight covering for garden parties, sports events, club celebrations or even as weather protection for swimming pools. Unlike many other tents, our marquees are designed to provide optimal air circulation without drafts. Find out about rules concerning planning and permitted developments in our planning permission guide.

The occasions where a marquee best fits the bill:

  • For garden parties, bbqs or family celebrations. Depending on the number of guests, seating required, or the length of the buffet table, tents ranging in floor area from 3x6m to 4x8m make for a good party shelter.
  • Outdoor dining for restaurants, either as permanent outdoor seating or as additional capacity for special occasions.
  • As a shelter for guests and catering stations at weddings, club celebrations or sporting events.
  • As a cover for pools, hot tubs, or spas keeping leaves and dirt out, and allowing you to take a dip no matter what the weather.
  • and much more...

Choosing the right dimensions of your marquee

We offer a large selection of party tent sizes from 3x2 m right up to 8x36 m. You will certainly find the tent you are looking for. Foldable party tents, can be found in our Pop Up Gazebos section.

Do you know the number of guests but are not yet sure which size would be most suitable? As a helpful rule of thumb - number of standing people x 0.5 = space requirement in m². So if, for example, 100 guests are invited to a wedding party, you need a party tent with at least 50 m² of space. A marquee measuring 5x10 m is ideal. If rows of seats or beer table sets are to be set up, this formula changes somewhat. You can find more about this in our guide "Which Party Tent Size do I Need?".

And, another helpful tip: Our party tents can also be connected to one another via connecting channels. So you can offer your guests twice the space if necessary!

You have plenty of design options with side walls

Closed at the front, open on the side? You can attach or remove the sides and gable walls of our party tents individually. For example, you can create additional entrances on the sides or remove all side panels on hot days.

Enjoy our products for a long time

All marquees have a fully galvanised anti-corrosive steel frame, making them dependable over the long-term. In order for a party tent to last as long as possible, two things are particularly important. Firstly, the correct cleaning and storage of the tent and secondly, the correct protection against wind or snow. Find out about rules concerning planning and permitted developments in our planning permission guide.

Garden Gazebos

Garden gazebos with heavy duty metal frames are classy and eye-catching. Use them to create a relaxing outdoor lounge on your patio or as weather protection for your garden furniture on the lawn. Spend precious time alone outdoors or relax with your family and friends in our modern and 100% watertight garden gazebos, independent of the weather. When it rains, the sturdy hardtop roof made of polycarbonate panels or soft-top tarpaulin protects you from the elements. Both hardtop and tarpaulin roof types offer you and your furniture excellent UV protection.

Would you like a little more privacy protection in your garden or on the terrace? Your garden pavilion can be closed at lightning speed using the side panels supplied, offering you protection from prying eyes as well as from sun and rain.

Choosing the right model for your needs

Before you buy a gazebo for the garden, it's best to first check how much space is actually available in your outdoor area. Also, note the height of the gazebo to ensure that it won't hit a tree or an overhanging part of the house. The size you'll need depends on how many people you expect to join you in your party gazebo and what type of furniture you will use in the space. We have garden gazebos in sizes 3x3m, 3x4m or 4x4m.

Summer or year-round use?

We offer garden gazebos with two options for the canopy: Hardtop canopies made of solid polycarbonate panels and soft top tarpaulins. While both naturally offer great rain and UV protection, the polyester tarpaulins are not suitable for use in the colder seasons. In contrast, polycarbonate panels, which are similar to glass and just as shatterproof (but lighter in weight), make garden gazebos with hardtops winter-proof.

FAQ: Frequently asked questions

How can you heat a gazebo?

While garden structures are generally not designed for heating, that doesn't mean you can't raise the temperature a few degrees on colder days, so long as your canopy also has four sides. If you want to make the room nice and warm, the heating you choose must be suitable for indoor use due to safety reasons. While our gazebo marquees are flame retardant, you still need to exercise caution! The distance between the heater and sides must be large enough to prevent a fire hazard. Fan-assisted gas heaters, which use a gas bottle for heating and an electric powered fan to distribute warm air throughout the room are often used.

A gazebo is considered waterproof when its canopy does not let water drip through. PE, PVC, or PVC-coated tarpaulins ensure this. The seams on House of Tents' products are mechanically sealed so that no water can penetrate them. Our garden gazebos with hardtops are of course also watertight thanks to the precision fitted solid polycarbonate panels.

The three different types of gazebo all have features and advantages that make them suitable as hot tub gazebos. Therefore, it all comes down to your preferences. A pop up gazebo is incredibly easy to assemble and take down, meaning you have the shelter only as long as you need it. Garden marquees are an excellent choice if you are covering a swimming pool, because they come in larger sizes. Garden gazebos meanwhile are a stylish option, and with a hardtop roof, can be left standing year-round. When not in use, a hot tub gazebo should be left open, allowing plenty of ventilation to stop chemicals building up on the aluminium or steel frames and roof materials.

A pergola is a (often wooden) structure that is used as a support for vines, using plant life to create a shaded area below. A gazebo meanwhile, has a full roof, providing both shade and protection from rain or snow. While a pergola looks fantastic in a garden, it requires time to create a full coverage of plant life. Unlike a gazebo or parasol, a pergola also doesn't provide shelter from passing showers.

Pop up gazebos or party tents are not fixed structures, usually standing at most for a few days at a time. They therefore are generally considered temporary buildings. Special rules apply due to their temporary use. On the other hand, garden gazebos are typically intended to stay in place for a longer period of time and are not considered to be temporary buildings. Although no building permit is generally required, this is always a matter for local planners. You should clarify your position with the responsible building authority before purchasing a gazebo.

If you want to get creative, pop up gazebos come in the widest range of colours. From shades of white and grey, to blue and green. If it's a sleek black gazebo that you need, this is where you should look.

A more muted colour palette is available for garden gazebos, including champagne, loft grey, stone, and cappuccino.

Garden marquees can be purchased in white or green, or in elegant white with coloured detailing.
