The Foundling Museum - £M-E

Museums

One of London’s hidden gems, the museum tells the fascinating story of England’s first childcare charity established in 1739 and is located on the site of the original Foundling Hospital. The display is a poignant reminder of the 27, 000 children who passed through the hospital until it closed in 1950s and provides guests with an insight into a remarkable part of England’s history. An ideal location for receptions and dinners; the building retains many features from the original hospital and houses England’s first public art collection which was forerunner to the Royal Academy. The magnificent Court Room was designed by William Hogarth as the showcase for British Art in the 1740s and can be used for dinners today. The first successful performance of Handel’s Messiah was held in the chapel of the Foundling Hospital and the Gerald Coke Handel Collection now displays the largest private collection of Handel memorabilia including his will and a fair copy of Messiah.
