Christmas parties

The Natural History Museum has an incredible range of venues for celebrating the festive season.

Christmas party options are provided in conjunction with our catering partner, the-recipe. Dry hire options are available for those who wish to add their own touch to the space, as well as comprehensive packages delivering a complete experience.

The newly refurbished Hintze Hall, with the stunning blue whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling, is a popular choice for large celebrations. Earth Hall and the Museum’s galleries offer a more intimate atmosphere to entertain friends, colleagues and business partners.
