The Smith Centre

Originally constructed in 1890, the Smith Centre has been elegantly preserved to present four spaces of varying size that suit a wide variety of event purposes.

From small meeting rooms for up to 20 guests, to an ample-sized salon accommodating 200 guests for a canapé reception, the Smith Centre provides versatility throughout.

Among the original features is an open-plan courtyard area which can be enjoyed in conjunction with daytime hire of the Salon. The space is also enhanced with a range of hand-picked historical objects from the Science Museum collection, including a replica pressure suit from the last mission to the Moon and the stunning Electrical Engineering Workshop painting by Terence Cuneo.

The Smith Centre is located on the ground floor of the Science Museum and benefits from a fully integrated AV system, enabling a seamless production experience that links to Illuminate.

Hire of the Smith Centre includes: The Salon, The Boardroom, One Meeting Room and the Courtyard.

All of our suppliers are able to work in the Smith Centre, however if you require daytime catering then we would recommend using Benugo Events. Please contact them for bespoke quote on
