The Foyle Centre has been carefully designed to accommodate all types of daytime and evening events, including conferences, lectures, training days and workshops. The Foyle Centre has its own entrance on the west side of the building and is well connected to the rest of the museum and supporting facilities. It comprises four spaces - 1.1, 1.2, 2.1 & 2.2 - and is available to hire whole or in various configurations. Spaces 1.1 & 1.2 are separated by a sound proof partition & can be used individually or as one large space. The same applies to 2.1 & 2.2. Prices vary depending on room set up.
Available for both daytime and evening events, the Boardroom provides a formal yet warm space for business meetings, small receptions and intimate dining. The Boardroom is a private space located on the second floor of the museum. Accessed via lift and a high-level bridge, a large east facing window gives panoramic views of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. An adjacent breakout space is included in the hire of the space. All catering is organised via our in house caterers or one of our approved suppliers. Please enquire for details.
The Foyer is available for private events outside museum opening hours, and is used alone or in conjunction with other spaces in the museum. It has direct access to both the Atrium and Cafe. Incorporating large expanses of glass and open to the Atrium, the Foyer is a light-filled space at the front of the building; the glazed facade on the east side overlooks Sir John Soane's Grade II listed stables. High ceilings and neutral finishes make this architectural space an ideal backdrop for production and branding. All catering is organised via our in house caterers or our approved suppliers.
At the heart of the museum, the Atrium is a dramatic central space which extends from the lower ground floor to the full height of the building. Arranged across floors and running from the front to the rear of the museum, the Atrium creates a strong visual link between spaces. Used together with the Foyer or Cafe, it is an ideal space for a drinks reception, dance floor or after-dinner lounge area. All catering is organised via our in house caterers or one of our approved suppliers.
The L-shaped Cafe is split into 2 sections for events. C1 and C2. C1 overlooks the Atrium and Foyer and is used in conjunction with these spaces for larger events. C2 is a stand alone space, connecting directly with the museums main entrance. The Cafe is located on a mezzanine level at the front of the museum. A light, open space, its modern design includes a full-height glass facade looking onto Royal Hospital Road. All catering is organised via our in house caterers or one of our approved suppliers.
