Greenwich private hire venue

Private Hire

An unrivalled space in which to enjoy intimate receptions, afternoon tea or corporate meetings

The combination of its convenient location, lovingly restored early Georgian listed town Houses with their gracious architecture, and the remarkable Orangery, provides the perfect setting for smaller functions and special occasions


The Orangery is decorated with a mural by Jane Barraclough which gives the room a wonderful atmosphere. It overlooks what is surely one of the most unexpected and unusual gardens in South London with its paved parterre and fan shaped flower beds, its pond, stream and architectural features and plantings in the Japanese manner. Unfortunately The Fan Museum cannot offer guests use of the garden or surrounding outside space.

Special Occasions

Small receptions, birthday parties or baby/bridal showers can be held in the Orangery, with refreshments ranging from afternoon tea to catered meals.

Conferences & Filming

The Orangery is available for corporate hospitality events, photo shoots, meetings, lectures, and filming.

Wedding Receptions

The Orangery creates a perfect atmosphere for intimate wedding and civil partnership celebrations.
