About Imperial War Museum

Located in Central London close to the City, Westminster and Southbank, IWM London’s famous façade is a stunning Grade II listed building that was formerly home to the Royal Bethlem Hospital – now remembered as ‘Bedlam’. 

IWM London has been transformed. Designed by Foster + Partners, a spectacular new Atrium forms the heart of the museum and a breath-taking hanging gallery in the rooftop provides dramatic views of the floors beneath. Along with our remodelled daytime rooms, IWM London provides the perfect showcase for events big and small, traditional and low-key or high profile and inspirational. 

IWM London is the flagship venue for Imperial War Museums (IWM), founded in 1917. It is the perfect venue for event organisers of strong brands, exciting innovators and forward-thinking organisations. From breakfasts, receptions, seated dinners and lunches to presentations and private celebrations, IWM London delivers successful events that achieve your aims and leave your guests talking about their experience. 

By holding your event at IWM London, you are helping IWM continue to record and tell the stories of people’s experiences of conflict and to educate more people around the world about the impact of war on people’s lives.
