The Great Hall & Bench Rooms
Opened in 1845 by Queen Victoria, the Great Hall is considered to be one of the most distinguished buildings designed by Philip Hardwick working in the Tudor Revival style. On the north wall is a huge and magnificent fresco executed by G.F. Watts, the Pre-Raphaelite painter, showing the world’s law givers from Moses to Edward I. Your guests also have access to the Bench Rooms & Upper Vestibule which are used as pre-dinner reception areas. The imposing wooden doors are then opened to reveal the magnificence of the Great Hall where guests are invited to dine.
The Old Hall & Crypt
Dating back to 1490, the Old Hall is a wonderful example of beautifully maintained Tudor architecture and has many notable features including the wooden screen at the south end, designed by Inigo Jones, and Hogarth’s painting of “Paul before Felix” on the North wall. The Crypt beneath the Old Hall was for centuries used for storage of fuel, food and wine. Now the brick groin vaulting has been restored to its former glory and is used as a reception area.
