There are nine rooms in the main house and a permanent Marquee on the lawns outside, which is ideal for exhibitions, product launches, events and large weddings.
The largest room is the magnificent Great Hall and with its grand marble fireplace, crystal chandeliers, walnut panelling and minstrel gallery is the most elegant of venues for corporate receptions catering for up to 130. There are six other rooms on the ground floor. The Lecture Room is an Adam style drawing room overlooking the grounds of the Palace and is annexed to the Library; these two rooms make a very attractive package for corporate entertaining.
