Situated on the banks of the River Thames, opposite the Houses of Parliament and next door to Lambeth Palace, is the Garden Museum, housed in one of London's oldest churches.
The deconsecrated church of St Mary-at-Lambeth has been transformed into a museum of the art, history and design of gardens, making it a completely unique space in the heart of London. There are new exhibition galleries and two stunning garden spaces designed by two of the country’s most renowned garden designers, Christopher Bradley-Hole and Dan Pearson.
There are two main spaces available for venue hire. These are the Nave, a traditional space in the main church with soaring ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows that can accommodate up to 120 for a seated dinner or 250 for a standing reception and the brand new Sackler Garden, which balances the surroundings of the main church with contemporary bronze and glass architecture. This space is a perfect location for a drinks reception for up to 120 or a smaller dinner event for 30 and provides a tranquil opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of central London with the chance to use one of London’s newest event spaces.
The venue is available for hire from 5pm-midnight on Sundays to Fridays and from 4pm-midnight on Saturdays. Extensions until 1am are also possible.
