Summer parties

The Natural History Museum offers a range of cool and tranquil outdoor and indoor places to host the perfect summer party.

The spacious Darwin Centre courtyard can be themed for your event and our caterers offer a range of summer menu options to match.

From summer 2019 the Darwin Centre and Courtyard are available as part of an inclusive summer party package, with prices starting from £80 per person. Download our leaflet for more information.

Larger and more formal parties can be hosted indoors in the splendour of Hintze Hall or the airy Earth Hall.

Please note we are unable to offer Summer packages for 2021 at this time, please contact us to find out about our alternative venue hire options or with any questions.
