Museum of Garden History

Overview

Fizz Cater at the Museum of Garden History, an esoteric gem in the middle of central London. Housed in the former church of St Mary at Lambeth, the medieval chapel later underwent extensive Victorian restoration, and the Museum has been recently updated again to create a comfortable, modern space that has thankfully lost none of its original character.

Enjoying a prominent location on the Thames next to Lambeth Palace and overlooking Westminster, the Museum of Garden History feels like an oasis of calm deep within the bustle of the city. Guests can arrive in style boating down the Thames before alighting at Lambeth Pier and whiling away a summer evening enjoying drinks or even a medieval hog roast in the stunning formal gardens. The 17th Century 'knot' garden comfortably accommodates a marquee to allow you and your guests to make the most of this tranquil haven, or you could choose to move inside the spacious main hall with its beautiful stained glass windows, easily seating 120 for dinner. Exhibits can be removed to provide more space or can be left in situ as a fascinating talking point and backdrop to your event.

Happily for them The Victorians understood a great deal about acoustics and the Museum of Garden History gives a clarity and purity of sound unusual in venues of this kind. As such it is perfect for live music or dinner dances and is also very forgiving for speeches, presentations etc.

For smaller meetings or conferences the charming Library provides an interesting and versatile solution. Well-equipped and comfortably seating thirty, the Library is available for hire during the day or in the evening and can be used in conjunction with the Gardens or main hall to provide a versatile series of function spaces that can be tailored to any individual specification.

Whatever your event the Museum of Garden History can accommodate you and your guests with an attractive mixture of style and function. An outside entertaining space of this quality in central London is a rare find, and combined with an interior that manages to be both visually stunning and exceptionally versatile it is easy to see why the Museum of Garden History is in such high demand.
