Venue hire

As part of our curious journey, our spaces and exhibitions are changing: Medicine Man and our ground floor special exhibitions space are temporarily closing, and there may be some noise and clutter between now and the spring. As a consequence, we won't be able to accommodate events within our conference centre while our exciting new public spaces are being created.

If you are interested in holding your event within another unique venue then please visit the Unique Venues of London.

Our centrepiece is the Henry Wellcome Auditorium, which can be paired with the Williams Lounge to make a fantastic space for all types of events. Four smaller meeting rooms (Franks, Steel, Dale and Burroughs), all of which are flexible in set-up, are also available for hire. All rooms are finished to an extremely high specification – including computerised signage screens outside each room and built-in AV equipment – and are fully accessible, with built-in induction loops.

The fascinating and thought-provoking ‘Medicine Now’ gallery can be hired for an evening drinks reception. The gallery provides a truly unique backdrop that is especially conducive to networking and is ideal for giving your attendees an unforgettable experience.

This is a spacious breakout area sold alongside the Henry Wellcome Auditorium or available alone for evening events.

This flexible space can be set up as a single space or divided into two individual areas.

The Dale Room is a bright and airy room with plenty of natural daylight.

The Burroughs Room is a wonderfully quiet meeting room with a semi-private terrazzo lobby.

'Medicine Now' also lends itself to private and completely unique evening reception events.


Just a short distance from Euston, King's Cross and surrounding underground stations, Wellcome Collection has an impressive location
