Seven Stories is the perfect place to hold your private party, meeting or networking session. With our distinctive event spaces, great food and our usual personal service, alongside the option to visit our exhibitions, your guests are guaranteed a memorable visit.

Our whole building is available for hire outside of our normal business hours.

Explore our Exhibitions

Access to our exhibitions is included in our whole building hire package but can also be added to other hire agreements at £120 for access to all galleries for your entire party.

White Glove Sessions

If you are looking for something a little bit different to entertain your guests, we offer white glove handling sessions. This is a rare chance to see some of the treasures from our extensive collection up close. This is priced at £180 per event (max. 25 people per session, multiple sessions can be delivered for larger parties at the same price).

Dressing Your Room

Table and chair dressing are not included in our room hire rates but we will happily arrange this for you with our regular provider at a competitive price.
