- London Canal Museum is a unusual and attractive place for your wedding or wedding reception. There is something about water that adds extra romance to the most romantic day in your life - your wedding day! You can arrive by boat for an extra special touch. Even if a cruise won't fit into your schedule, the attractive, tranquil urban beauty spot that is Battlebridge Basin is a great setting. Choose a place to celebrate your wedding which will be interesting for your guests, and memorable for life. Book a lasting memory. The ground floor is ideally suited to receiving your guests. There is ample circulating space and plenty to look at. Conversation between guests who have not previously met will be encouraged by our exhibits and the spectacular opening in the floor which reveals the preserved Victorian ice well below. The rear windows look out onto Battlebridge Basin with its colourful canal boats. In good weather guests will be able to take in the view and some fresh air by strolling out to the waterside. The first floor is the area where the ceremony, if held at the museum, and the main party happen. There is room for 120 people to be seated at tables or in theatre style to watch a ceremony (up to 140 for the ceremony). If you opt for a buffet style unseated meal up to 200 guests can be accommodated. Typically a reception-only celebration starts with a champagne reception on the ground floor, then guests move upstairs to eat. After the meal, space is cleared for dancing. However there is a great deal of flexibility - you can plan the event in accordance with your own preferences. If the ceremony takes place at the museum this is usually held on the first floor at 1700 (small-scale ceremonies can be held on the ground floor) followed by the reception, but we also do ceremony-only hire.
