Venue hire at London Canal Museum

 

London Canal Museum

Hire this venue for your own event - it has three function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 200 guests and the smallest is ideal for 8.

A trip to the Canal Museum reveals there's more to London's man-made waterways than just enjoying a day out in a narrow boat. You'll learn about the history of the canals which were once an important route for horse drawn commercial traffic in the late 18th and early 19th century. A tour of the museum gives you the chance to see inside a narrow boat cabin, get to know the people who used the canals as well as the horses that pulled the boats, and the cargoes they carried. The museum also tells the related story of London's ice trade - and is housed in a former ice warehouse originally constructed in 1862-3 for Carlo Gatti, a well-known ice cream maker. Today the museum still has a huge commercial Victorian ice well used to store ice imported by ship and canal boat from Norway. With Regent's Canal right outside, a visit the museum makes it easy to imagine just how important these waterways once were.
