The Main Hall was created for the specific purpose of entertaining in 1622. The hall can accommodate up to 400 for the ceremony, 450 for a reception or 300 to dine and dance. One of the most magnificent elements of this room is the grand masterpiece of a ceiling by Sir Peter Paul Rubens.

The Undercroft provides a beautiful ambience for your celebrations. Once the retreat from public life for Stuart kings, the intimacy of this stunning vaulted location remains. The Undercroft can hold a maximum of 120 guests for a ceremony with 380 for a pre-wedding breakfast or pre-dinner reception. For your evening reception or festivities, the room can accommodate 250 guests and 120 for a wedding breakfast.
