Sir Giles Gilbert Scott Suite

The Sir Giles Gilbert Scott Suite is a versatile space. Our two oak-panelled rooms, each holding up to 100 guests, make the ideal space for a tasteful private supper or anniversary celebration.

Complete with w-ifi, natural daylight and fully equipped with AV package the suite is the perfect place for a business breakfast or a full day conference. The Sir Giles Gilbert Scott Suite has a dedicated entrance, reception foyer and kitchen serving two oak panelled rooms and a boardroom.

The Well

With stunning views across the central space to the High Altar the Well offers a unique view of the Cathedral.

With a ready made stage area the Well has the ability to offer a truly intimate experience.Many choose to combine the Well dining experience with a pre-dinner reception in our Lady Chapel. Being called to dinner by our world famous organ guests can walk through a 'runway' of candle lit lanterns making an unforgettable start to your evening.

As a performance space it has proved ideal for stripped back, acoustic and intimate performances from top artists. It's also a perfect space for stunning theatrical performances. 

The Well is well used as a display space, showcasing art and photographic exhibitions to great effect.

Lady Chapel

The oldest and perhaps most beautiful part of the Cathedral, the Lady Chapel offers its own organ, much-admired lantern lights, its own private entrance as well as some of the most beautiful stained glass in the Cathedral.

This intimate chapel has wonderful acoustics and is ideally suited to smaller recitals, film showings, theatrical performances and lectures, seating up to 200 guests.  It also provides a pre-event reception space for those hiring the Well – combined with a call to dinner by our world-famous organ, and a candle-lit walk across the main floor, it’s a start to the evening no guest will forget!

Celebrating a special wedding anniversary? Why not have a wedding blessing or a renewal of vows in this most beautiful Chapel and complete your special day with a champagne reception and dinner in the Sir Giles Gilbert Scott Suite. (Minimum numbers apply).

Weddings may also be held in the Lady Chapel but are subject to very strict criteria and to Archbishop of Canterbury's licence limitations and conditions. You can find more information by clicking this link here.
