Overlooked by a minstrel’s gallery which can accommodate a full chamber orchestra, the Library is the House’s most spacious room seating up to 130 people.

This elegant room houses a fascinating collection of silverware including a delightful 1880 salt cellar in the form of Winstanley’s Eddystone Lighthouse and a magnificent wine cooler presented to the House by William IV. Its impressive collection of books however, is safely protected behind the room’s panelled doors.

Ceremonies and receptions

This room offers a particularly attractive setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions; beautiful 16th and 17th century stained glass windows, lovely views to the Tower and River Thames and elegant proportions make this room a uniquely appropriate choice for large celebrations.
