About this space

Entertain your guests amongst some of IWM London’s most important exhibits, including a number of dramatically suspended iconic aircraft.
The stunning 25m-high space benefits from great flexibility. The large exhibits on display include a rare Battle of Britain Spitfire; a Harrier jet used in Afghanistan and a German V2 rocket.

These exhibits create an impactful and thought-provoking entrance for guests and provide talking points throughout an event.

IWM London’s ever changing temporary exhibitions and prestigious permanent displays can add fascinating elements to events, especially when combined with private tours of the galleries.
