This historic and imposing venue is situated in a 9-acre park only minutes from Central London, close to Westminster and Southbank. IWM London’s famous façade is a stunning Grade II listed building formally home to the “Bedlam” hospital. Excellent transport links being just a 10 minute walk from Waterloo and 5 minutes from Lambeth North tube station. It attracts half a million visitors annually from all over the world to its award winning galleries.

The main Atrium - a stunning 25m-high space - benefits from great flexibility. Accommodating up to 350 for dinners, 300 with dancing and receptions up to 400, the backdrop of large exhibits including a rare Battle of Britain Spitfire; a Harrier jet and a V2 rocket, really give this space the wow factor. The Atrium, together with the galleries in the entire museum, can cater for receptions for over 1000 guests.

This is the perfect venue for event organisers of strong brands, exciting innovators and forward-thinking organisations.
