About this space

Space virtual tour

We are delighted to announce that the recently revealed Special Exhibitions Gallery is now available for evening events! It is the first time this striking historical space has been open to the public and available for hire.

Built in 1882, the 725 square metre space was originally built to provide storage for the Great Western Railway.

The gallery can accommodate up to 100 guests and is the perfect space for pre-dinner drink receptions or post-conference drinks. The space is available to hire independently, or in conjunction with another gallery suitable for seated dining.

Guests are able to explore some of the world’s best science exhibitions, originated and hosted in the gallery, whilst enjoying the grand industrial space. Guests can enter the gallery in the fully accessible lower courtyard, beneath the stunning 1867 viaduct.
