Wednesday 24 March 2021

With the return of live events on the horizon, the Museum of London venue portfolio is gearing up to re-open with the launch of an exciting new event space at the Museum of London Docklands - the stunning Riverside room.

Housed within one of the oldest Georgian warehouses in Britain, the temporarily named Riverside Room is located on the right-hand side of the beautiful Muscovado Hall as you enter the Museum of London Docklands. The new event space benefits from its own entrance and private terrace area meaning guests can enjoy the Canary Wharf skyline, as well as the stunning atmosphere of the docks. The perfect London venue with a River view.

The new space embodies the history of this Grade I listed warehouse building, with its exposed brick walls, original wooden columns and floors providing a unique backdrop for events, from conferences and training to gala dinners, drinks receptions and product launches. The Riverside Room has capacity for 300 guests for standing receptions, 120 for dinners and up to 100 for daytime conferences.

Sarah McQueen, Assistant Head of Commercial Services at the Museum of London, said:

We are so excited at the prospect of events returning and we’re delighted to be able to offer a completely new space at the Museum of London Docklands in which to create memorable experiences for clients and guests.

“Getting teams back together face-to-face to reboot company culture and boost morale is going to be incredibly important in the months to come, and to be able to bring a new space to market is fantastic for us and our clients. We expect the impressive size of the Riverside Room, alongside its private entrance and terrace with spectacular views of the Canary Wharf skyline, will make it a popular choice with organisers and we can’t wait to help bring their event visions to life.

“Safety procedures are never far from our mind, and both the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands are fully Covid-secure with all of the necessary Covid-compliant procedures place, so organisers can be confident that guests will be welcomed into a safe environment.”


The Riverside Room, and indeed all event spaces at Docklands and London Wall, are available to book now for events taking place once the museums reopen in May, in line with government guidance and with social distancing measures in place. Both museums have achieved Visit England’s ‘We’re Good to Go’ standard, the Meetings Industry Association AIM Secure accreditation and the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp from the World Travel & Tourism standard.
