Wellcome Collection Events Spaces auditorium

Taking Henry Wellcome’s original will at his word Wellcome Collection opened in 2007 to engage the public not only in our funded projects, but also to bring together the worlds of art and science. This has created a sophisticated conference offer, supported by amazing gallery spaces for evening receptions.

As one of the world’s most iconic buildings, no other venue in the world is more instantly recognised than the Palace of Westminster. The UNESCO World Heritage Site stands on a historic riverside location which was once the ancient palace to the Norman Kings and is now home to the United Kingdom’s Parliament.

Royal Hospital Chelsea

Founded in 1682 by Charles II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the Royal Hospital Chelsea was built as a home for 'veterans broken by age and war'.  For over 300 years it has housed the famous scarlet-coated Chelsea Pensioners, former soldiers of the British Army, who come to live in this magnificent site during their retirement. Its stunning buildings and gardens make for a truly idyllic location for your event in central London.  

Banqueting House has two spaces for corporate and private evening entertaining. The Main Hall is topped by the magnificent Rubens ceiling and able to seat 380 for dinner or 500 for a drinks reception. The Undercroft is an atmospheric space for pre-dinner drinks or more contemporary parties.

One Birdcage Walk is the purpose built home for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, a Royal Chartered Institution that was formed in 1847 by George Stephenson. We operate as a not for profit member’s organisation that strives to improve the world through engineering.

Today, the palace is available to hire for a limited number of events each year, whether for fabulous garden parties, sumptuous weddings, amazing dinners or sensational awards ceremonies. The list is endless as the spaces and gardens offer a variety of exciting and versatile spaces to hire.
