Museum of London Docklands

Just five miles away from the London 2012 Olympic Stadium is the Museum of London Docklands, which traces the capital’s fascinating history over 2000 years.
Built in 1802, this late Georgian warehouse is Canary Wharf's only Grade I listed venue and was originally used to store rum, molasses and cotton from West India slave plantations. Now it’s a home to the Museum, spread out over five floors. 

Original pine columns and floors combine with contemporary fittings to provide a stylish location for conferences and corporate entertaining. We provide bespoke catering from a Champagne reception to a finger buffet and hire out a large number of rooms. These include the Rum Store ¬- which has quayside doors opening onto the south-facing terrace - and the many galleries that make for an intriguing setting. 

Since our catering contract with the museum’s cafe began in autumn 2010, we’ve developed its offer for daytime visitors, selling salads and paninis, coffee and homemade cakes. Committed to serving healthy snacks and meals for young visitors, we’ve also created fun, pirate-themed lunchboxes.

We also run the local bar and restaurant Rum & Sugar just next door. This contemporary and bustling restaurant is part of the museum and included among our many exclusive venues.

Venue secret:

For unparalleled views of West India Quay and Canary Wharf, hiring the third-floor Quayside Room is a must. While it is available for meetings or as a catering space for the adjoining lecture theatre during the daytime, its illuminated Docklands skyline makes a glittering backdrop for an evening party.
