Dinners and Receptions

With the ability to dine under the hull of Cutty Sark or sip champagne on the Historic Prime Meridian, Royal Museums Greenwich is an awe-inspiring place to dine, celebrate and entertain -  from small gatherings of 10 up to large receptions of 1000.   

Private dining

Royal Museums Greenwich is fortunate to have stunning and unique private dining spaces, where guests can marvel at historic monuments whilst experiencing incredible hospitality.

 In The Queen’s House, The Great Hall is an ideal setting for dinner parties and exclusive suppers. A perfect 40-foot cube, with its 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 and watch fireworks from the terrace

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.
