About Orleans House Gallery

Riverside, Twickenham
Middlesex, TW1 3DJ

Situated within magical woodlands overlooking the beautiful river Thames, Orleans House Gallery provides the peace of the countryside within an urban landscape.

The stunningly restored Octagon room is full of character and has a rich history, dating back to 1721, when it was built to entertain Queen Caroline, wife of George II. The space can accommodate up to 60 guests for your ceremony and the public gardens leading from the room are the perfect place to host your post ceremony drinks reception.

Your guests will also be able to make the most of the unique venue and are encouraged to stroll around the grounds and explore the gallery exhibitions when they arrive.

There are plenty of beautiful reception venues along this stretch of the river, so why not catch a boat from the wonderfully quaint pier, situated just minutes walk from the gallery, to your evening celebrations? Or if you are looking for a smaller, more intimate lunch or afternoon tea party to celebrate your day, our on site Coach House can host up to 60 guests, with catering especially delivered by our on site Stables Cafe events team.

 For further information please contact our Business Co-ordinator, who will be happy to discuss your plans in more detail.

Beautiful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Liz and Mike, on 13 Sep 2015

We had a brilliant experience with Charlotte and the rest of the team at Orleans House Gallery. The venue itself is beautiful, and makes for some great photos. Our photographer was very happy! We found the whole process really easy, and all the staff were helpful and accommodating. Would totally recommend this venue for a southwest London wedding.

Perfect venue for a perfect day
Venue Service

By Sally and Phil Munk, on 13 Aug 2015

Absolutely perfect wedding venue. Huge thanks to Charlotte for overseeing our day from beginning to end, advising and guiding us on every step. The staff at Orleans House are just so helpful. They let us visit and look and plan and practice whenever we wanted! The room is stunning and we received so many compliments on our ceremony venue and location. It was one of the largest civil ceremony venues we could find in the area and also the most beautiful. We wouldn't hesitate recommending Orleans House Gallery as a wedding venue, and if I could do it all again I would!

Superb venue and staff

By Helen & Garth Shephard, on 10 Aug 2015

The venue is absolutely stunning. A beautiful room surrounded by lovely gardens on the banks of the Thames. The staff, and in particular Charlotte, were brilliant and we cannot thank them enough. Friendly, relaxed, helpful, organised and professional. They took away a big part of stress from us so we could enjoy the ceremony!

Just stunning!

Summer Wedding
Venue Service

By Lynsey McClenahan, on 24 Jul 2015

Great day and venue for our wedding and fantastic help from Charlotte and Jayne. The Octagon Room is perfect for a small intimate wedding service and the location and gardens were beautiful in the summer. It was also a perfect location for us to continue with our boat trip on the Thames. Many thanks to Orleans House Gallery.

Beautiful venue, lovely staff
Venue Service

By Bridget, on 21 May 2015

This is a simple, fantastic venue in a lovely setting by the River Thames. The Octagon room is beautiful and needs next to no decoration. Outside the venue the gardens are also lovely. The wedding staff were brilliantly organised, thoughtful and ensured the event went without a hitch. A really memorable and magical day.

A dream come true
Venue Service

By Martina Callender, on 15 Oct 2014

PERFECT wedding venue. We felt privileged to marry in such a special place, it was more magical than we could ever have hoped or dreamed. A beautiful and elegant space, uniquely intimate, which has given us stunning wedding photos. The team were amazing. Helpful and thorough in the planning. On the day, calm, collected and professional, ensuring that everything ran so smoothly. From the moment we each arrived, bursting with excited happiness and perhaps a few nerves, we were put completely at ease and knew we were in good hands, meaning we could enjoy our ceremony feeling completely relaxed and confident that everything would be wonderful and all we needed to think about were the vows we were making to each other. Our heartfelt thanks for making the best day of our lives so completely perfect.

Perfect intimate riverside venue
Venue Service

By Matt & Chantal, on 30 Sep 2014

We married in the Octagon Room, Orleans House Gallery on the 29th August 2014 which proved the most idyllic of settings – riverside location, glorious grounds, grandeur, historical significance and the most supportive of Events Coordination Teams you could wish for. Throughout the entire process, from our first phone call to the day of our ceremony, Orleans House Gallery delivered with absolute professionalism.

1st March 2014 Wedding at Orlean's House Gallery
Venue Service

By Lindsey & Milo Gaster, on 13 May 2014

A big Thank you to Ayomi and her team for our wonderful beautiful wedding sat at Orleans’s House Gallery on Saturday 1st March 2014. The venue itself is just so lovely, we felt under no pressure at all on the big day nor the lead up to it. The weather was slightly cold but beautifully sunny so we had drinks and nibbles on the patio as well as having full use of the Octagon Room. I would really recommend the venue for those looking for something a bit more special. All of our Guests who are Twickenham based couldn’t believe they had overlooked such a lovely venue. Thanks Again Lindsey and Milo Gaster

A truly amazing day at a beautiful, intimate and relaxed venue. We would highly recommend orleans house due to the stunning setting and personal touches from everyone who helped us at the gallery. The help from Lesley our wedding attendant was invaluable in calming on the day nerves!

Our perfect venue!
Venue Service

By Laura Saunders, on 07 Sep 2013

We wanted a small, intimate, pretty and family-oriented wedding and OHG definitely delivered! The team were really helpful and supportive, and the Octagon Room so ornate, we only needed some country garden flowers. A gorgeous venue that we highly recommend!
