Weddings and civil partnerships

From our iconic venues to the fantastic suppliers we work with and our dedicated event management team, the Natural History Museum is the perfect setting for your wedding or civil partnership reception

The 'wow' factor

Imagine your guests’ reaction as they ascend the grand steps of the Waterhouse Building. Greet them with canapés, drinks and entertainment. 

Then, serve dinner in the magnificent surrounds of  Hintze Hall (formerly the Central Hall), under the watchful eye of our resident Diplodocus. What other venue can offer that?

The icing on the cake... A twinkling floor adds drama to Hintze Hall

Or, for a wedding or civil partnership reception that is out of this world, impress your guests in our magical Earth Hall, home to a giant globe sculpture and vast celestial wall map. Travel through the globe into the upper galleries and you have access to other unique spaces for your special day.
