The Museum of London has almost three-quarters of the funding needed to build its new home in Smithfield, after winning support from the City of London Corporation and Mayor of London.

Sadiq Khan, whose £70m pledge is the largest cultural investment made by any London mayor, said: ‘The world’s greatest city deserves the world’s greatest museum.’ The City of London Corporation will give £110m towards the £250m project.

Due for completion in 2022, the vast building will also be a major venue for private events, incorporating almost 10,000sq m of gallery space, as well as a sunken garden.
