Civil ceremonies, Weddings and Receptions
The Hospital provides a unique, picture book, historical atmosphere of intimacy and informality in which to celebrate the union of two people.
Civil Ceremonies are normally held in the 600-year-old timber-framed Guildhall. This wonderful room can seat up to 60 and its antique feel and simple, charming atmosphere makes it an unforgettable venue for that special event. Under certain circumstances the ceremony may be held in the ancient Great Hall which can accommodate up to 100 under its splendid beamed roof.
After the ceremony there are unrivaled opportunities for photographs in the galleried Courtyard and the Master’s Garden.
The reception or wedding breakfast is held in the medieval Great Hall where up to 90 guests can celebrate the occasion. Food and wine of outstanding quality and value are provided by our recommended suppliers.
Parties, Dinners and other Functions
Dinners, parties and other functions can be held in our Great Hall where up to 90 guests can be seated beneath the ancient beamed roof where King James I dined in 1617
