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.

You can hold a wide variety of events in the museum. It is especially suitable for these types of event, from which delegates or guests can return to France or Belgium, most of the midlands of England, Croydon, Gatwick, Brighton, Cambridge and of course large parts of London, by a single train journey without a change, direct from a station within walking distance.

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.
