Sir Daniel Gooch Theatre

Our Sir Daniel Gooch Theatre is a stylish, air-conditioned conference room.

Situated on the top floor of the Museum, this space seats up to 100 delegates theatre-style and can also accommodate smaller groups without feeling too large.

This popular space is typically used by organisations for AGM's, group talks, public meetings and large conferences.

The adjoining balcony offers the perfect 'break-out' or refreshment space and gives your guests an excellent view of the Museum’s impressive reception area.

The room is equipped with the latest communications equipment but still retains all the charm and character of the Great Western Railway.
