The Main Hall set up in theatre style on a day time event

The Main Hall

The Main Hall is a truly awe-inspiring venue for conferences and large meetings. Here, soaring Ionic columns lead the eye upwards to the magnificent ceiling, a Baroque masterpiece painted by Sir Peter Paul Rubens.

The Main Room’s opulent surroundings lend a sense of grandeur to any corporate event. Your guests will be dazzled and inspired in equal measure.

The Main Hall can seat up to 400 guests theatre style, and up to 240 guests cabaret style.

The Undercroft

Once the setting for celebrations enjoyed by James I and his companions, the Undercroft makes a more intimate counterpart to the imposing Main Hall.

This atmospheric space has charm and character in abundance, and the cosy arches and rich acoustics make it a perfect setting for away days, meetings and conferences.

The Undercroft can accommodate up to 380 guests for standing drinks receptions.
