History and receptions under one roof

Admission to the impressive Imperial War Museum of London is free, although some exhibitions may charge a symbolic fee. On display, visitors can admire a rare and unique Battle of Britain Spitfire; Montgomery's tank; the smallest boat used at Dunkirk; and other military exhibits.

The Imperial War Museum was founded during the First World War to record and document the war effort and sacrifice of Britain and her Empire. Today the main atrium of the venue can be hired for receptions, weddings, charity balls and gala dinners, film premieres, fashion shows and product launches, having a capacity of over 1000 guests. Four meeting spaces complete the corporate offer, including a fully equipped cinema, conference room and two traditional Georgian boardrooms.
