  • Opened for the first time in 1622

The Main Hall is a versatile and inspiring space. Spacious enough to accommodate large receptions, awards ceremonies and dinners, yet intimate for smaller personal celebrations.

For centuries, royal palaces have relied on the ‘great hall’ to accommodate all kinds of occasions: sumptuous receptions, theatrical performances, moving concerts, riotous celebrations and, of course, banqueting. For over 20 years we have helped our clients deliver successful events of every type in the Main Hall – from fundraising dinners to fashion shows to milestone parties and celebrations. 

The intimate atmosphere of the Undercroft offers guests a pleasant complement to the soaring, majestic Main Hall. Once enjoyed as a drinking den by King James I and his riotous, party-loving courtiers, it still serves as a wonderful space for drinks receptions and late night parties.
