About this space

The Court Room, one of London’s finest original Rococo interiors, provides an ideal setting for intimate dinners. A re-creation of the original Foundling Hospital Court Room used for entertaining important guests, the room contains many fine examples of British art and design with paintings by Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth, alongside a striking 18th-century marble chimneypiece.

The stunning Persian carpet enhances the Collection and tall windows open out onto Brunswick Square. Up to 40 can be seated, with a maximum of 20 on a single table. Alternatively this space provides the perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks.

The Museum tells the poignant story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. Housed in a Grade II-listed Georgian-style building, the Museum offers a mix of historic interiors and contemporary event spaces, providing a unique setting for your wedding, meeting, dinner or Christmas party.

Located in Bloomsbury, central London, the Museum is a unique venue for hire near Russell Square and Holborn underground stations, and both Euston and King’s Cross St Pancras International.
