Venue details

The Octagon Room

Contained within Flamsteed House is the elegant Octagon Room, the last surviving interior designed by Wren for observing the stars. With soaring windows and 360-degree views of Greenwich Park, the Thames and beyond it provides an iconic London venue for your evening wedding.

This charming wood-panelled room is ideal for intimate evening wedding breakfasts for up to 54 guests. After dinner, guests can star gaze with a private telescope viewing.

The Meridian Line and Courtyard

Enjoy the views over drinks in the Courtyard and grab an iconic photo opportunity atop the historic Meridian Line, where eastern and western hemispheres meet. 

Please note that due to the delicate, world-famous Harrison timepieces housed within, there is no dancing allowed. However, Flamsteed House  can be hired in conjunction with the nearby Peter Harrison Planetarium where your guests can dance the night away.
