With exclusive hire, you can invite loved ones to embrace an unforgettable moment in time with the inspiring backdrops to match.

Facilities and Capacity

Between the contemporary Darwin Centre and the tranquil outside courtyard, The Natural History Museum can give you ample flexibility for your wedding day. The Hintze Hall is the venue's largest setting, forming the museum's famous dramatic entrance. Accommodating up to 450 guests, its Romanesque arches and breathtaking stone staircase will prove a remarkable place to celebrate your union. The nearby Fossil way makes for a beautiful pre-dinner reception space where guests can sip on champagne and soak in the prehistoric wonders. Alternatively, North Hall can deliver similar Victorian architecture in spades with a more enclosed, intimate feel. Further options include the celestial Earth Hall, where you can dine and dance next to the resident Stegosaurus fossil or the Images of Nature Gallery, where old and new come together in stunning fashion.
