Tucked away in a quiet corner of Camden, The Foundling Museum is one of the most unique venues in London. This Grade II listed Georgian building is surrounded by green spaces, with lovely views across Brunswick Square. But its historic 18th-century interiors featuring work by several renowned British artists and sculptors are undoubtedly the star attraction.

Alongside weddings, The Foundling Museum London’s function rooms host all kinds of events, from corporate parties to bar mitzvahs and birthdays. There are also two modern studios on the ground floor, which are ideal for workshops and meetings. And whatever you’re planning, the venue has an event coordinator and a vetted list of suppliers to help bring it to life.

  • Historic London venue with two grand event spaces
  • Close to Kings Cross St Pancras & Euston stations
