Founded while the First World War was still raging, Imperial War Museum London gives voice to the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people forced to live their lives in a world torn apart by conflict. Located in Central London close to the City, Westminster and Southbank, IWM London’s famous façade is a stunning Grade II listed building.

Designed by world-renowned architects, Foster + Partners, a spectacular Atrium forms the heart of the museum and a breathtaking hanging gallery provides dramatic views of the floors beneath. Along with remodelled daytime rooms, IWM London provides the perfect showcase for events both big and small, traditional or quirky, high profile or low-key.

We are proud to operate the IWM London cafe located off the main atrium, the ideal spot to relax during your visit. Serving the best of British seasonal cuisine alongside tempting treats, barista-made coffee, refreshing beverages and a fabulous children’s menu, the cafe has something for everyone. 

We believe that the cornerstone of good food is the quality of the ingredients. Our chefs value the importance of fresh, carefully sourced ingredients and really appreciate the abundance of quality produce Britain has to offer.
