Hire Design Museum - 2 spaces for memorable events in London

The Design Museum offers two main spaces that can accommodate up to 250 guests for a standing reception and 120 guests for a seated dinner. Hire the Design Museum as a blank canvas venue that offers a flexible and naturally lit space with incredible London river views from the 1.5 Gallery. With white walls, marble floor and floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto the riverside terrace, the space can be completely transformed to accommodate your event. The space is perfect for conferences, product launches, creative sessions, receptions, dinners and much more.

If you’re looking for an interactive aspect for your event, the Curatorial Team at the Design Museum are able to lead 30 to 45 minute tours of the exhibitions during an event or private gallery hire. Tours are recommended outside of the Museum opening hours and for a maximum of 35 guests at a time. It is possible to book consecutive tours for larger group numbers or a short talk in an events space.

The Design Museum is located just a short walk from London Bridge and Tower Hill, making it an centrally located venue that is easily accessible for your guests. If you’re looking for a blank canvas venue, get in touch with the Venue Search London team today.
