Spaces at The Foundling Museum


This magnificent room contains many of the grand paintings given to the Foundling Hospital in the 1740's, including Captain Thomas Coram, 1740, which is considered to be one of Hogarth's finest portraits. The Picture Gallery is perfect for private dinners, charity balls or larger drinks receptions. Our passionate Events Team works closely with a highly regarded list of caterers to provide an excellent level of service for clients and a memorable event for guests
