Natural History Gallery hire

With unique historic character, our Natural History Gallery is an unconventional location for filming and photography hire.

This gallery first opened in 1901, and the design was influenced by the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements of the time.

Many of the original showcases remain, and displays are packed full of taxidermy, skeletons and specimens preserved in fluid, making the space an impressive backdrop.

This space is only available for filming and photography hire.

Please note, the Natural History Gallery Balcony will close from 8 January, and the Natural History Gallery will close from 4 March. There will be no opportunities to hire those spaces beyond those dates until 2026.
