Sink into British seafaring history and become immersed in its tales of exploration and victory at The National Maritime Museum. It’s a unique wedding destination that will engage your wedding guests. The National Maritime Wedding venues offers amazing Thames riverside views and verdant grounds of Greenwich Park are perfect for wedding photography

In the midst of the building’s grand 18th century architecture, the modern glass roof creates a dazzling centrepiece. As you look up, you can watch the sky fade into nightfall, and then the vibrant coloured up lights will start to take effect and build the party atmosphere. Throughout the entire venue, additional state-of-the-art event technology have been added, such as large scale staging, rigging and branding. This gives you the ability to create any backdrop to your wedding using the high quality production facilities.

At The National Maritime Museum there are four key function spaces. Firstly, The Square on the ground floor is an open airy room suitable for drinks receptions for up to 500 people. This vibrant mingling area allows your guests to roam freely throughout the exhibitions spaces after hours, where they can feast their eyes on the fascinating objects on display. But if you want your guests to be fully immersed within a museum exhibit, the Photography Gallery holds up to 110, and its dimly lit interior emphasises the mesmerising images of the solar system.

Upstairs, The Great Map is another light-filled space to make your own and it has a newly installed lighting and audio system to increase what’s possible. Alternatively, when the weather is too good not to be outside, the lush grounds of Greenwich Park and its striking colonnades provide a beautiful space for an al fresco drinks reception.

National Maritime Museum located in Park Row, Greenwich, it’s an excellent museum of British naval history. Wheelchair access is very good. Large open spaces and toilets available and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

This is a really excellent experience. The glass dome that was added in 2011, makes the museum so much better. A huge space.

Excellent place next to the National Observatory and very close to the Cutty Sark. Great staff and facilities, and can handle a big crowd.

The building by its own is a masterpiece but inside is more interesting. If you like maritime things you're going to love it. And a fun fact... in the college next to the museum is a scene on THOR: The Dark World.
