Venue Hire

London Canal Museum is an attractive heritage venue within a short walking distance of London St. Pancras International Station. You can hold an early evening reception in a charming, attractive London venue that's close enough to St. Pancras for guests to go home to Paris and Bruxells the same night, as well as to many parts of England. The constrast between the busy station area and the peaceful, canalside charm of the museum is dramatic one, yet the walking time to the Eurostar platform will be only 10 minutes.

So Very Easy to Reach

From St. Pancras turn left into Pancras Road and then at the traffic lights right into Goods Way. Follow this road to the far end and turn right onto York Way. Then take the second turning on the left, Wharfdale Road. Our road is the second on the left and once you are in it, you can't miss us. The route is level.

Stations Everywhere

The museum has unsurpassed access to London, England and the Continent by train. These routes are available from stations within walking distance: Euston and Caledonian Road & Barnsbury are about 15 minutes' walk, the others are all closer.

Also by Boat, by Road, by Bus

There is direct access by chartered canal boat. For business entertainment, why not charter a boat to bring your guests to the museum from Islington, Camden, Marylebone, or Paddington?

Coaches and taxis can drop off passengers right outside our front door. Parking is available in the street from 1830 (1330 Saturdays, all day Sundays)

For local travellers, there are numerous bus routes offering direct links to many parts of London. Most routes are accessible for wheelchair users.

Times and Availability

The museum is open to the public every day except Mondays, from 1000 to 1630. The museum is available for private functions from 1630 onwards. Our conference room is available to be booked for storage on the day of the function and also afterwards. This means you can have things delivered before 1630 on the day, your caterers can start preparing, and everyone can be ready more quickly once the hire period starts. If your guests are due to arrive before all the preparations have been completed, on the first floor, they will be happy enjoying a reception on the ground floor whilst catering staff complete their work. Guests should not normally arrive before 1630.

Key Facts

What's it like?

There are two floors. The ground floor has colourful exhibits and scenery, and a fenced opening in the ground to look down into a unique preserved and illuminated ice well that used to store ice from Norway in the 19th Century. The first floor boasts a magnificent timber roof, a lifelike horse in her stable, and plenty of space for a seated meal or a larger standing event. There is a wharf outside at the rear and the view is across Battlebridge Basin, a colourful home for many canal boats and their owners. The building is old - the facilities are modern. You won't believe you are just 5 minutes' walk from King's Cross station and 10 minutes from St Pancras International, on foot.
