Venue hire at The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum

Hire this venue for your own event - it has seven function rooms the largest of which can hold a maximum of 200 guests and the smallest is ideal for 30.

The Foundling Museum is one of London's real hidden treasures. Originally established in 1739 as a hospital which looked after abandoned children, the museum now tells their story. Using oral testimony, original artefacts and photographs, their history is explored and compared to the lives of contemporary children. In addition, the museum displays works by the many artists who became governors of the hospital, including William Hogarth and Handel. It's all housed in interiors preserved from the 18th century. There are very few museums in London that offer such a fascinating history. Each month the museum hosts a variety of afternoon concerts in the Picture Gallery which are free with museum admission. Concerts and recitals usually take place at Thursday lunchtimes, one Sunday in the middle of the month and the last Friday of each month.
