College Garden - An impressive 900- year old garden, with beautiful views of the Abbey and Victoria Tower, part of the Palace of Westminster. This exclusive walled garden has a cosy and welcoming atmosphere all year round.
Believed to be the longest continually cultivated garden in England, College Garden is an idyllic space for a summer party reception, dinner, lunch or daytime business conference.
In June and July, we construct a stylish marquee with a decked porch area, making College Garden an idyllic venue for a relaxed reception, formal gala dinner or corporate conference and lunch.
From August to May, there is the exclusive opportunity to hire College Garden for one event a month. In this instance, you are welcome to construct a marquee structure to accommodate your event needs.
