About Brunel Museum

At the museum site, we have a unique tunnel shaft space that is perfect for intimate ceremonies and services as well as a courtyard and garden area. It is a place full of character and a perfect blank-canvas that is able to adopt a range of styles and ideas. It would be perfect for those looking for a distinctive heritage site with a fabulous history, or a location that is a little less traditional.

Overnight accommodation:

There is no accommodation on site, but we can provide a list of local hotel options.


As an historic site, we are currently restricted in our accessibility to those of limited mobility. Access to the floor of the Shaft is by 3 flights of stairs down, with no lift. A viewing platform at the top is accessible by wheelchair users.

Brunel’s Grand Entrance Hall (“The Shaft”) – our main performance venue – is a 10m high cavern entered at the top. The bottom is reached via 3 flights of well-illuminated stairs with high-visibility handrails. Wheelchair users and those with limited mobility can view from the “Royal Box” viewing platform at the entrance at the top.

The Engine House has wheelchair-suitable access to the main entrance, shop, lower gallery and toilets (where there is an accessible toilet). However, the upper gallery where the main exhibition lies, can only currently be accessed via a half-flight of stairs.

The Garden is only accessible up a very narrow half-flight of stairs, and contains uneven gravel paths

Access between the The Shaft and the Engine House is via a half-flight of stairs, however a level-access path is available by detouring around the building.

Car parking:

We have two car parking spaces on site that can be used for disabled or less mobile guests, and for a wedding car to park, or for a street food van. We recommend guests arrive via public transport where possible as part of our sustainability efforts. We are 2 minutes' walk from Rotherhithe underground station.


Unfortunately, we do not permit fireworks on site.


Real, dried, flower petals only - preferable white!

Venue Staff:

You may hire a Wedding Coordinator at an extra fee of £240.


Pets are welcome in the courtyard area, roof terrace garden and in the shaft.

Changing rooms:

We do not have a designated changing room on site for getting ready, but we do provide a quiet space for you to meet the registrar, and take a few moments before your ceremony with your wedding party.
