Museum of London Docklands

Just five miles away from the London 2012 Olympic Stadium is the Museum of London Docklands, which traces the capital’s fascinating history over 2000 years.
Built in 1802, this late Georgian warehouse is Canary Wharf's only Grade I listed venue and was originally used to store rum, molasses and cotton from West India slave plantations. Now it’s a home to the Museum, spread out over five floors. 

The Museum offers a total of twelve distinct galleries which together tell the stories of London’s Docklands, the River Thames, and London’s past as one of the world’s great trading cities. Unique attractions and collections include Sailortown, where you can explore the dark and mysterious alleyways of the museum’s recreation of 1850s Wapping, interactive play area Mudlarks and the Docklands at War gallery which includes a collection of stunning paintings by William Ware illustrate the intensity the Blitz had on London’s docks.

Since our catering contract with the museum’s cafe began in autumn 2010, we’ve developed its offer for daytime visitors, selling freshly prepared hot and cold items which change daily as well as salads, soups, paninis, coffee and a variety of freshly made cakes. Committed to serving healthy snacks and meals for young visitors, we’ve also created fun, pirate-themed lunchboxes.

Venue secret:

Contemporary eaterie Rum and Sugar is part of the museum but also a standalone bar and restaurant where we offer high quality lunch and dinner menus as well as an extensive drinks list and cocktail menu. 

Experience a taste of the venue’s rum-soaked history with one of their famous Mojitos while you see the venue’s past brought to life in this stylish restaurant which echoes the style of the building’s original function and serves one of London’s most extensive selections of fine rum.
