Venue Review of The Darwin Centre

Added to the Natural History Museum’s spectrum of spaces in 2009, the £78m Darwin Centre packs some serious visual punch. In contrast to the ornate Central Hall and colourful Earth Hall, this space is pared back and fiercely contemporary. The centre’s most striking feature is a centrepiece 65m-long, eight-storey concrete ‘cocoon’ suspended inside the building that holds a million-strong collection of insects and plants. The tall space works particularly well for receptions with aerial entertainment. There’s also the opportunity to spill out into the tranquil 350-capacity amphitheatre-style garden, offering a secret oasis in the centre of London – especially impressive at sunset.
