It’s that time of year again. As the leaves start falling and the days start getting shorter, there’s one word on everybody’s minds: Christmas!
If you haven’t yet got your Christmas party booked into the diary, our unique venue of the month will be your best friend. London Transport Museum is the unique Christmas party venue you need in your life right now. Here’s why you’re guaranteed to love it.
Forget your boring, run-of-the-mill office Christmas party venues. After years of reduced socialising due to Covid, you need this festive season to go off with a bang. And what better way to do that than with a completely unique venue that’s sure to stick in your guests’ minds for years (and maybe even decades!) to come?
London Transport Museum definitely ticks the unique box. As Covent Garden's original flower market, this striking Victorian building has been transformed into a museum that pays homage to the capital’s rich transport history.
The Museum Galleries consist of two floors full of early tube carriages, iconic red buses and interactive exhibitions. That’s right, your guests can sip mulled wine, gobble Christmas dinner or dance to The Pogues surrounded by a one-of-a-kind talking point. Oh, and your more adventurous guests can even experience what it’s like to be a tube driver with the museum’s popular Elizabeth Line driving experience – taking the ‘driving home for Christmas’ concept to a whole new level!
Picturing a sophisticated three-course Christmas dinner? A festive drinks reception with cocktails and canapes? Or an all-out bash with dancing until the early hours?
No matter what kind of Christmas you’re dreaming of (a white Christmas aside!), the Museum Galleries have got you covered. In fact, they can be transformed to host any number of occasions – from awards ceremonies to gala dinners and more. There’s room for up to 150 guests to dine under that stunning glass ceiling, or 400 to mingle during standing receptions.
Oh, and we haven’t even mentioned the venue’s other spaces yet! The high-tech Cubic Theatre is a purpose-built auditorium perfect for a pre-dinner awards ceremony. And the underground-themed Canteen is ideal for more intimate festive events for up to 80 guests.
In short, London Transport Museum is the flexible venue you need to ensure your Christmas party really is the most wonderful time of the year!
