The Main Hall

Designed by William Burn, a leading architect of the nineteenth century, the foundation stone of the Main Hall was laid in 1823. The timber-panelled entrance door is flanked by imposing doric columns and opens into an oval plan hall with a shallow domed ceiling. The lofty dimensions and play of light in the room give a sense of great space and occasion.

The Main Hall may be an impressive historical space, but it is also a flexible one. To the sides, round-arched niches house wood-panelled doors leading to smaller rooms (ideal as break-out spaces), as well as kitchen and washroom facilities. Whether you see yourself sweeping under the columns to be married beneath the light from the clerestory window, talking from a podium on the stage to those seated at tables below, or enjoying dinner and music under the central chandeliers, this is your space to make your own.
