IWM London (Imperial War Museum)

Located close to the Southbank, IWM London is a stunning Grade II listed building that was formerly the Royal Bethlem Hospital.

IWM London has been transformed. Designed by Foster + Partners, a spectacular new Atrium forms the heart of the museum and a breath-taking hanging gallery in the rooftop provides dramatic views of the floors beneath. Along with the remodelled daytime meeting and conference rooms, IWM London provides the perfect showcase for events big and small, traditional and low-key or high profile and inspirational.

The main Atrium - a stunning 25m-high space - benefits from great flexibility. Accommodating up to 350 for dinners and receptions up to 400, the backdrop of large exhibits on display, including a rare Battle of Britain Spitfire; a Harrier jet used in Afghanistan and a German 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.

IWM London is the flagship venue for Imperial War Museums (IWM). It is the perfect venue for event organisers of strong brands, exciting innovators and forward-thinking organisations. From breakfasts, receptions, seated dinners, meetings and lunches to presentations and private celebrations, IWM London delivers wide range of successful events that will leave your guests with a lasting impression of their experience here.

Located in Central London close to the City, Westminster and Southbank, IWM London’s famous façade is a stunning Grade II listed building formally home to the “Bedlam” hospital. The venue has excellent transport links being just a 10 minute walk from Waterloo and 5 minutes from Lambeth North tube station.
