The Admirable Crichton

< Back to venues

Museum of the Order of St John is a hidden jewel in the City of London and a choice of evocative rooms date from the twelfth and sixteenth centuries and combine with sleek modern spaces to produce an extraordinarily special events venue.

St John’s Museum is between Smithfield and Clerkenwell and these unique venues are easy to get to on public transport.

Our historic rooms are simultaneously grand and intimate and provide an ideal location for hosting events from small and intimate right up to large gatherings of up to 250 guests.

Available spaces

Event Spaces

Any function, whether it be corporate or social, may be combined with a private tour of the historic buildings, Priory Church and Crypt, galleries and garden

Built in 1504 and with interiors designed by John Oldrid Scott, both spaces are breathtaking. They are decorated with paintings dating from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, exquisite stained glass and antique furniture.

Glowing gold and crimson in winter, overflowing with scented flowers in summer, St Johns’s Gate and its Cloister Garden are perfect venues in which to celebrate the British seasons. At Christmas, the Chapter Hall blazes with colour and its enormous chandelier sparkles. In the spring, the Cloister Garden bursts into flower and, by midsummer, its shady benches are surrounded by swathes of lavender, roses, thyme, sage and lilies.

The Admirable Crichton are welcome to cater at this venue if you request us at the time of booking or we place the business, please ask your event manager for more information.
