The V&A Museum of Childhood provides a striking setting for an evening private party or dining event.

Since opening in 1872 this Grade II listed building has become one of the best-loved features of London’s fashionable East End. The 19th century architecture creates an impressive visual impact upon entering and your guests will be surrounded by the galleries and collections throughout the evening. This space is suitable for most celebrations including seated dinners and standing receptions.

The Marble Floor can hold up to 300 guests for a dinner, and 900 guests for a drinks reception, extending to 1,000 guests if including the Front Room Gallery.

The Museum is available on a dry hire basis but has a list of suppliers to recommend. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to use any suppliers of your choosing. We also do not charge corkage.
