Natural History Museum Logo

The Natural History Museum is one of the UK’s most iconic and versatile venues, inspiring the most compelling meetings and events in London. With four unique spaces available for meetings, drinks receptions, gala dinners, weddings and private events, the Museum can cater for anything from 2 to 1500.

Exciting changes are taking place at the Museum, with Hintze Hall reopening in summer 2017 after a major redevelopment. During this time the Museum will still offer a range of beautiful spaces for events, such as Earth Hall and the Darwin Centre, with a selection of exclusive packages for more intimate experiences throughout the galleries.

Newly reopened in summer 2017, Hintze Hall - the Museum's largest event space - has been completely renovated, with a 25m blue whale skeleton diving through the centre. Its surrounding galleries with hidden gems to explore, adorned with stunning nineteenth-century terracotta features, are available throughout the year and can be booked in addition to Hintze Hall or as a venue in their own right.

Equally impressive is the Museum’s Earth Hall, with its own private entrance, the futuristic space is perfect for both cocktail receptions and seated dinners. During events guests have the chance to ascend the escalator which transports them through the centre of Earth into the surrounding geological galleries, where they can view precious gemstones, rocks and minerals, discover the natural forces changing our world today and go back to the beginning of time to explore the evolution of life.

Steel beams and reflective glass, together with the white limestone floor and curved concrete walls, ensure the Darwin Centre provides a bright and modern event setting. The opportunity to explore the Cocoon is an extra treat to any event.

The courtyard is a tranquil environment for reception drinks followed by a dinner in the atrium, or it provides the perfect setting for a summertime party, with additional space inside. The state-of-the-art Attenborough Studio has a capacity of 60 people and can be used for press conferences and presentations, followed by drinks and canapés in the courtyard.

If you are planning a daytime conference, our lecture theatre may well be the perfect location. The purpose-built Flett Events Theatre has tiered seating for 200 guests and is equipped with sound system, lighting, video and projectors. The bright foyer area is ideal for registration, coffee breaks and standing buffet lunches. Delegates are welcome to explore the Museum’s galleries during opening hours free of charge.
