Garden Museum

Situated by the River Thames, the Garden Museum provides the perfect location for wedding receptions, corporate events, parties and celebrations.

Situated moments from the River Thames and a short walk from Vauxhall underground station, the Garden Museum is housed in the deconsecrated church of St Mary’s-at-Lambeth. The Museum has been restored to house seven brand new galleries and two stunning garden spaces designed by Chelsea Flower Show garden designers, Christopher Bradley-Hole and Dan Pearson. As Britain’s only museum dedicated to the art, history and design of gardens, the Museum provides a completely unique space in the heart of London.

There are two main spaces available for venue hire. These are the Nave, a traditional space in the main church with soaring ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows that can accommodate up to 120 for a seated dinner or 250 for a standing reception and the brand new Dan Pearson Garden which balances the medieval surroundings of the main church tower with contemporary bronze and glass architecture. This space is a perfect location for a drinks reception for up to 120 or a smaller dinner event for 30 and provides a tranquil opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city with the chance to use one of London’s newest event spaces.
