Tucked away in a leafy corner of Bloomsbury, the Foundling Museum is a tranquil, yet centrally-located wedding venue in London.

Wedding hire at the Foundling Museum is always exclusive, and with both of our historic rooms licensed for ceremonies, we are ideally placed to host any aspect of your big day. Take your vows upstairs in one of our stunning rooms, then descend the sweeping 18th-century staircase as a newly-wed couple.

Our opulent Court Room has one of the finest Rococo interiors in London, and makes a stunning backdrop for an intimate ceremony and reception. Alternatively, the Georgian-style Picture Gallery makes an elegant choice for larger celebrations and wedding breakfasts.

All couples who book their special day with us are offered lifetime membership of the Museum, so that they may revisit whenever they like and relive their special memories.

The Museum’s dedicated events team are always delighted to hear from prospective wedding couples and are ready to assist with planning for events of any size. We work with a carefully-selected list of suppliers to ensure ours clients’ day runs perfectly, from start to finish.

 

Income generated from venue hire supports our vital and unique work with disadvantaged children and young adults.

  • Our son was married at the Foundling Museum last August. The ceremony took place in the beautiful Picture Gallery, with live music in a serene atmosphere. The Museum staff were discreet but wonderfully efficient, and very pleasant. The catering was superb. A very memorable occasion!

    Claire Parker
  • We were married at the Foundling Museum and could not have been more delighted with every aspect of the day. The setting is simply beautiful, and with flowers the romance of the Picture Gallery and the Court Room comes fully alive. We would unreservedly recommend the venue to anyone.

    Eamon McCrory
  • When we started to look for the perfect venue for our wedding, we had a clear picture in our minds of what we wanted: somewhere intimate and classically romantic, whilst at the same time interesting and unique. The Foundling Museum offered us all of these qualities.
