Dinners and Receptions
Parties without loud music
A dinner venue that's different, a party venue that's perfect!
This page is about drinks parties, dinners, and other events that don't involve music and dancing or other loud music. Background music is acceptable at an event like this.
The museum is a warm and inviting waterside building of great character that makes a fine backdrop to a business or private dinner or party. Ideal for networking or socialising, the two floors can be used singly or in combination. There can be up to 200 guests unseated. Buffet by the boat, drink amongst displays, and banter under the beams of our historic building.
Atmospheric lighting can make the most of the natural brickwork and other features of the building. Meals can either be a buffet, or canapes served by waiting staff, or you can have a full dinner for up to 120 guests. When used as a dinner venue there is usually a drinks reception on the ground floor followed by a seated meal on the first floor, ending with unseated coffee back downstairs if extra networking opportunities are wanted.
You have a free choice of caterer and we don't charge corkage. You can bring guests by boat to our own mooring right outside. We're highly experienced at hosting private events and our experience can help you to make sure your event is a great success! We're also reasonably priced, and conveniently located near King's Cross station, but in a world that's miles apart from the busy transport interchange: the world of canals!
