Are you looking for a venue to hire for your next meeting, teambuilding day out, seminar or training event? The Foundling Museum’s Creative Studio is a contemporary meeting room for hire, situated in the heart of Bloomsbury and conveniently located near King’s Cross St Pancras and Euston stations.

The purpose-built, contemporary space, designed by award-winning architecture practice Jestico & Whiles, is bright and airy. Large glazed doors let in natural daylight whilst white walls add to the sense of brightness. Our meeting room comes supplied with in-house AV equipment plus free WiFi internet access. If you’re looking for a creative space to hire in central London, a resilient laminate floor makes the room perfect for practical workshop sessions. The multipurpose Creative Studio can be set up to suit individual requirements, seating up to 60 theatre-style.

Day delegate rate packages are available, with options for full, half-day, breakfast and lunch rates. All meeting room hire packages include:

  • projector and screen
  • flipcharts and pens
  • notepad and pen for every delegate
  • event management
  • complimentary Museum access for all delegates during opening hours

We work with carefully-selected caterers to bring you these special packages which offer excellent value for money. Should you wish to provide your own catering, dry hire is available. Guests can explore our exhibitions and Collection on their lunch break. You can also make the most of your meeting or teambuilding day out with an early evening drinks reception in our elegant historic interiors.

Our meeting room is available to hire any day of the week. Alternatively, the Picture Gallery or Court Room are available to hire for meetings on Mondays. Breakfast meetings can be accommodated in these spaces on any day of the week.

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


  • My experience from start to finish has been wonderful. When booking, Nikki provided prompt and helpful answers which helped me to make my booking quickly and easily. Indeed, every member of staff has demonstrated warmth and professionalism – the team are charming. I will definitely use the Foundling Museum for future events, and will be recommending to others.

  • It was a great pleasure to hold our meeting in the Foundling Museum yesterday – all the delegates were thoroughly impressed and the organisation was impeccable throughout the day, plus all the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful (and clearly very committed to the institution).

  • We held our company’s strategy day in the Museum’s Creative Studio. The space was perfect for the 50 of us to work in, and had all the equipment we needed to run a fun and productive session. The Museum’s events team were tremendously helpful and the event ran like clockwork.

  • Nikki and all the team at the Museum helped Children & The Arts put on a really great festive family day event. Despite being a large event with lots of moving parts, everything went incredibly smoothly and according to plan. The venue itself is beautiful and its fascinating history helped to make the day even more special – everyone had a blast!

  • In early 2015 we were looking for a suitable venue in central London. By chance we came upon the Foundling Museum and have held our forums there ever since. Members and guests alike are pleased to come to the museum as the location is extremely convenient and the Creative Studio is an oasis of calm in a bustling city. Our events span a whole day and we have lunch brought in which is handled with great efficiency. I thoroughly recommend this venue and its staff to anyone wanting to hold an event in central London at a fair price with exemplary service.
