Wedding Receptions and Private Hire

If you are looking for the wow factor for your event then we have it by the bucketload!

The Museum is set over several buildings of unique historical importance ranging in date from the late Georgian to the golden age of the industrial revolution. Within our walls, while you dine and dance the night away, you are surrounded by the very engines that defined an era and which were in a very literal sense the very beating heart of London. Exactingly it is possible to have our engines in operation during your event, including the narrow gauge railway where your guests will have the opportunity to ride on a steam train for a truly memorable experience

Our experienced and caring team of event coordinators are on hand to take all the worry out of planning your special event and will be with you from that first phone call. For catering options, the Museum works in concert with a rich and diverse repertoire of handpicked suppliers, who have been chosen, not only for outstanding service, but also for their knowledge of our unique venue.
