The space

Perfect for a variety of events, from summer receptions to wedding ceremonies, the Orangery can be used in a variety of ways.

Re-opening after a long period of restoration, we are delighted to announce that the Orangery will be available to hire for events once again from April 2024. 

Enquire about hiring the Orangery

Built in 1704, the Orangery sits within its own gardens and is a stunning venue for events all year round.

The level of decoration, including carved detail by Grinling Gibbons, reflects its intended use, not just as a ‘greenhouse' but as a ‘summer supper house' and a place for entertainment.
