Set in the heart of leaft Bloomsbury and overlooking glorious Brunswick Square, the Foundling Museum can be exclusively yours for the most special day of your life. Take your vows in one of our stunning rooms, then relax and enjoy champagne in our historic interiors. From intimate civil ceremony to a glamorous reception, the Museum offers tranquility and splendour away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Our venue is a stylish choice for a London wedding or civil partnership, with its beautiful eighteenth-century interiors displaying works of art by some of Britains most celebrated artists. Ideal for either small or large weddings, our rooms, both elegant and romantic, provide the perfect setting for your special day.

    A romantic and flawless setting

    We were married at the Foundling Museum in August and it we 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 had only our ceremony at the Museum followed by canapés and champagne, moving on to another venue for the evening. What did we like? The staff were exceptionally helpful throughout the process in all sorts of ways - suggesting an amazing florist (Nicky Doodson) and photographer (Dan Weil) making planning the day so much easier. The fact that both knew the venue and the staff made co-ordination between them very simple. Also, having a piano in the Picture Gallery was a great advantage in having music during the ceremony. We would unreservedly recommend the venue to anyone and were particularly pleased that our wedding could contribute to the charitable work of Foundling Museum.

    Id like to thank the Foundling Museum for helping to make our wedding so memorable. It was everything we'd hoped for, and more, and we are totally indebted to the Foundling team for helping to make everyone feel so welcome and for making the evening go so smoothly. We had loads of positive comments from our guests about the venue and the organisation. I'd like to thank you again and to wish you every success for the future.

    Elegant yet intimate setting - a very special day

    Our son was married at the Foundling Museum last August. The ceremony took place in the beautiful, brilliantly lit Picture room, with live music in a serene and gently solemn atmosphere. We then repaire to the Court Room for a drinks reception and a few speeches, and went back to the transformed Picture Room for the dinner. The Museum staff were discreet but wonderfully efficient, and very pleasant. The catering was superb. A very memorable occasion!
