Welcome to the

Midnight Apothecary

We are delighted you’re joining us at Midnight Apothecary, whether you’re a returning guest or someone new to our delights.  Things are a lot like the old days but there are a few important changes we’ve made to keep you safe. And there are a few things we ask you to take a look at here, before you arrive.


Please arrive at the box office welcome desk situated near the river (it will be signposted). If you’re coming from Rotherhithe Overground, walk straight up Railway Ave for 2 minutes and you’ll find us. If you’re coming by car or bike, our entrance is at the corner of Railway Ave and Rotherhithe St (please see on the map).


There is a one-way system through the site with one entrance and one exit. At the end of the evening please exit via the Terrace to the Exit sign, clearly marked.


The entrance to the loos is through the side entrance to the Engine House (clearly signposted) and there is a one-way route downstairs to the two toilets. There will be hand sanitiser inside and outside the toilets. Please exit straight through the barn doors on the lower ground floor and back up to the roof garden. The toilets will be checked and cleaned every 30 minutes. Guests are requested to wear a mask whilst in the Engine House (Brunel Museum) wherever possible.


Please take a seat at one of the numbered places, we are providing you with a table ordering service to keep you extra safe. One member of your party will need to download the Butlr: Food & Drink Ordering app and search for 'Midnight Apothecary'. You will then see our drinks menu and be able to order and pay for your drinks from here. One of our team will bring your tray of drinks to you and we kindly ask that one member of your party passes the drinks from the tray to your guests. Any difficulties- we are on hand to help!


We are delighted to have teamed up with the wonderful Mayflower Pub across the street to offer you a selection of delicious pub grub. Again, we’ve teamed up with Butlr so you simply have to download the app and search for for MayflowerFood@MidnightApothecary.

There will be a vegetarian, vegan and gluten free option.  Any problems- just ask a member of our team!
