Many of the museum’s galleries, such as the double height Living Planet gallery make an unforgettable backdrop for photographs.

The Clore suite offers you and your guests a versatile arrangement of space suitable for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and small evening receptions. The larger Clore suite opens onto a spacious patio with a raised pond and planted area providing an ideal location for a summer drinks reception. These rooms can be used individually or interlinked to create a large space.

The Special Exhibition Space is a large open plan space, measuring almost 500 square metres, which is ideal for civil ceremonies,wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. This space can be partitioned into three separate areas offering you great flexibility and can accommodate up to 500 guests.
