Grade II-listed London Transport Museum is a striking venue for Christmas parties. Located on Covent Garden piazza, the museum galleries provide an impressive backdrop, mixing old and new with displays of iconic posters, vintage public transport vehicles – among which guests can mingle – and exhibitions that look at London’s future transport system. If it’s a relaxed party you’re after, receptions that last until midnight can be held (including canapés and bowl food) and three-course dinners are also available. All packages include exclusive hire of the galleries, a microphone and AV system and welcome drinks on arrival. A range of supplementary entertainment such as museum actors and jazz trios can also be arranged.
