About this space
The Science and Industry Museum occupies a remarkable site. History was made here when the world’s first inter-city railway opened, on 15 September 1830. Our unique buildings were part of a revolutionary railway station, and for over 140 years, they were the scene of non-stop activity, as people and goods travelled in and out, around the clock.
We are now offering you an incredible opportunity to hold your conference, dinner or reception on the top floor of the world’s first railway warehouse. With exclusive access to three bays this is a unique and flexible event space.
*From January 2021 the Science and Industry Museum is embarking on a multi-phased programme of conservation repairs to the Grade I listed 1830 Warehouse, the world’s first railway warehouse. Work on the building is due to start on site in January 2021 and complete by February 2022. We will not be able to conduct any site visits during this time, but a virtual tour is available on our website - hirethescienceandindustrymuseum.com*
