Awe-inspiring dinners and receptions at Cutty Sark
Entertaining at Cutty Sark is a truly unique exclusive experience. The ship’s gleaming copper-clad hull is suspended dramatically above the Dock; an awe-inspiring event space ideal for dinners and receptions, with a capacity of 450 standing or 250 seated. Enjoy sunset reception drinks on the Main Deck under Cutty Sark’s magnificent masts with breath-taking views across London, or treat your guests to a private dinner for ten in the Mahoney-panelled Master’s Saloon.
The whole evening was an outstanding success and the clients were delighted. They have received many compliments from the guests, which is the true mark of success - it also generated a lot of tweets. As the guests walked from the pier and realised they were going onto Cutty Sark there was a real Wow! reaction and the cameras and phones all came out. The atmosphere was great and importantly, provided exactly the relaxed networking time that the client wanted

Exclusive corporate dining at the Queen's House
In The Queen’s House, The Great Hall is an ideal setting for corporate dining for up to 200 guests. A perfect 40-foot cube, boasting an original black and white marble floor and a large vaulted ceiling decorated with gold leaf, the hall offers fine views of the River Thames and the Old Royal Naval College. To finish in style, guests can end the evening watching fireworks from the terrace.
Large-scale gala dinners at the National Maritime Museum
With its dramatic glass roof, Neptune Court makes the perfect venue for gala dinners. Its capacity for large-scale staging, rigging and branding makes it a dramatic back drop for your events, with a capacity of 1000 standing and 580 seated.
Guests can take a break from the hospitality and visit one of our many galleries. The Lower Deck offers opportunities to mingle while browsing the fascinating objects on display and, weather permitting, your guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the colonnades overlooking Greenwich Park.
The museum also houses a photography gallery which opened in 2018; a fantastic space for drinks receptions for up to 110 people.
Hilltop dining at the Royal Observatory
From its hilltop setting in Greenwich Park, the Royal Observatory commands breath-taking views of Canary Wharf and the City of London. Flamsteed House is the original Observatory building, designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1675 to house the Astronomers Royal. At its heart is the magnificent Octagon Room, the reception room of the Astronomer Royals for hundreds of years. It is truly amazing to dine at the home of time. Events can be enhanced by private tours, telescope viewings as well as planetarium shows.
Celebrate this festive season at one of the most famous ships in the world. The fastest of her time, Cutty Sark stands as a glorious monument to the age of sail. Situated on the shore of the River Thames the ship provides commanding views over Canary Wharf and the City of London. An evening beneath her gleaming hull is a truly unique experience, and with the whole ship reserved exclusively for your use, your guests are free to explore this extraordinary vessel at their leisure.
