About Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a venue which needs little introduction. Taking up residence just a few miles from London in a stunning riverside location, the majestic venue was home to royalty once upon a time, and has acted as a space for unforgettable events for centuries. Over the years, Hampton Court Palace has played host to the likes of large-scale banquets, gala dinners and historic meetings over the years.

For those looking to host private dinners or receptions, there are plenty of spaces to choose from. We’re particular fans of the Great Hall, which was originally a dining room for members of Henry VIII’s court. With its impossibly high ceilings, stained glass windows and decorative walls, The Great Hall makes a grand setting for Medieval-style banquets and the space is able to host up to 270 guests for sit-down meals and 400 for drinks receptions.

For slightly smaller parties of up to 200 seated guests (or 300 standing), opt for the Cartoon Gallery. Originally used as a meeting room for the Privy Council, this is among the largest of the palace’s Georgian Rooms. The enchanting interiors are lined with Raphael masterworks along the walls, while the views overlooking the Fountain Court are a further draw.

If you’re looking to host an intimate dinner occasion, The Little Banqueting House is your best bet. Found amid the palace gardens, this serene space can accommodate up to 50 seated guests and features a Baroque interior which provides a stunning backdrop for lunches and dinners. There’s even the option to take a tour of the palace before you sit down to dine.

Hampton Court Palace is not just a venue for personal celebrations though, as the palace also offers ample space for conferences and meetings. Check out the Garden Room, which is a former orangery that combines old-world charm with modern tech such as AV equipment and WiFi access. Delegates are granted access to explore the palace, while the private walled garden offers a space for sports and team-building exercises.
