Inside, high ceilings, magnificent chandeliers and ornate period features form a grand backdrop for your party. Boasting six fabulous spaces with various capacities, parties of all sizes can be accommodated, from as few as 50 to 700.
Party nights at the museum

And forget about walking with dinosaurs, you can dance with them until late into the night! This venue is great for all party sizes, with different spaces available to suit your needs.

Rubbing shoulders with one of London’s most famous landmarks and overlooking the iconic River Thames, this venue even boasts literary ties with Charles Dickens – if you’re looking for somewhere steeped in history and heritage, this is it! Ideal for parties of 125 guests or more, you can enjoy an excellent sit-down dinner in the banqueting hall before moving into another spectacular room where a DJ will get the party rocking.
Or hop across to the north bank of the Thames…
