Hampton Court Palace Surrey Events
Hampton Court Palace is a place that needs no introduction. An estate of epic proportions, this 500-year-old venue has been hosting kings, queens and dignitaries for parties, banquets, celebrations, and meetings since 1514 – and was a particular favourite of Henry VIII. Grand halls, charming courtyards, paintings by Antonio Verrio and Andrea Mantegna, blends of Tudor and Baroque architecture and 60 acres of jaw-dropping gardens make up this luxurious venue in Surrey, nestled on the banks of the River Thames.
A wide array of event spaces allows you to host your celebration in the very places enjoyed by royalty. Choose lavish, grand rooms fitting of a Tudor court; intimate spaces within the gardens; or throw a large, spectacular event within the grounds. A dedicated event manager will see to your every need, ensuring no detail goes spared and that your wedding, corporate function, or big celebration is every bit as magnificent as Hampton Court Palace itself.

Spaces At This Venue
The Garden Room
A 1920s-style orangery with its own private walled garden, the Garden Room is a perfect mid-large venue for a day and evening event. Light, bright and airy, this is a contemporary option within the palace grounds, with stunning French windows that line the building and lead onto a paved terrace and garden.
The Great Hall
The Great Hall was originally designed as a feasting chamber for Henry VIII and offers a magnificent setting for grand celebrations and lavish wedding receptions. Features include stained-glass windows, beautiful tapestries, and a magnificent hammer-beam ceiling. The Great Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 200 guests.
The Little Banqueting House
The Little Banqueting House is a small but impressive space in Hampton Court Palace for intimate events. Located within the gardens and with beautiful views of the Thames, this venue has all the Tudor and Baroque splendour of the palace on a smaller scale. Paintings from Antonio Verrio create an elaborate backdrop for wedding ceremonies, dinners, or receptions.
Large Scale Marquee Spaces
Go big with your next event by booking a marquee on one of the areas of parkland within Hampton Court Palace’s grounds. Within the 60 acres of gardens, the 20th-Century Garden is a more contemporary area with ornamental trees that can host a mid-large event. Home Park is the largest area filled with ancient oaks and deer and will feel like your very own estate. And finally, there’s Fountain Court, a Baroque quadrangle with an impressive pool and fountain.

Absolutely a beautiful Palace, we spent most of our day in Hampton Court and the surrounding area. You feel as if your walking back in time, the Palace is well maintained, as well as all the artifacts inside. The murals are quite impressive, and each room looks era correct.
