The Great Hall

Amaze your party guests with a celebration to remember, in the grandeur of the historic Great Hall.

Begin with arrival drinks in the opulent foyer, beneath the marble rotunda. Inside the stunning late-Victorian Great Hall, delight your invitees with a formal dinner beneath the grand domed ceiling – or choose a stand-up buffet, and dance the night away.
