With a variety of different sized halls and rooms, it is perfect for anything from a small meeting to the largest of receptions. It is used for conferences, weddings and wedding receptions, fairs, recitals, meetings and parties.
The landscaped gardens, lawns and lake, with a fountain, provide a wonderful backdrop for your events and are particularly impressive for photographs.

Dying for the Vote. The Epsom Derby Tragedy.
In the presence of King George V and Queen Mary, a militant suffragette named Emily Wilding Davison sacrificed her life for the cause of women’s human rights.
Emily was fatally injured during the running of the Derby in an attempt to send a message to King George V that his female subjects were being repressed past endurance by government. Her intention was to run on the track and wave the flag of the militant Women’s Social and Political Union in front of newsreel cameras. Tragically, Emily collided with the king’s horse, Anmer.
