World famous Westminster Abbey is a dream venue for a variety of occasions. The Abbey provides a wide choice of unique settings for a prestigious corporate or charitable event – the Undercroft Museum, Cheyneygates, and in the summer months, the East Cloister and College Garden. The flexibility of choice allows for small receptions in intimate surroundings or large gatherings of up to 500 people in grandiose settings.

Cheneygates 

Cheyneygates is made up of two rooms proudly standing over the entrance to the cloisters of Westminster Abbey. Decorative highlights include a Flemish ‘flowers and vases’ tapestry of late 16th or early 17th century and paintings that provide a rare depiction of the 13th century choir stalls, destroyed in the 1770s. These rooms work well for meetings and lectures or, on occasion, small exclusive dinner parties.

College Garden 

Beautiful College Garden occupies a site that has been under continuous cultivation for more than 900 years. It was here that the Abbey’s first infirmary garden was established in the eleventh-century. The oldest surviving feature is the stone precinct walls at the far end, which date back to the fourteenth-century, while the oldest living things are the five tall plane trees, planted in 1849. Available only for 5 weeks a year, College Garden is an unforgettable garden party location, for those lucky enough to book it!hardest to impress guests enthralled. Subtle atmospheric lighting and a display of royal effigies, including the funeral effigy of King Charles II and King Henry VII, enhances the surroundings as your guests absorb all the Undercroft has to offer.

The Cellarium

Dating back to the 14th century, the Cellarium was used by the monks to store their food and drink.

The Cellarium Terrace

The Cellarium Terrace showcases a stunning blend of past and present architecture.

Chapter House

The 13th century Chapter House, with its medieval tiled floor, is one of the largest and most impressive in Britain. The vestibule houses the oldest door in Britain, dating back to the 1050s. The Chapter House was also the place where Parliament met in the 14th century before transferring to the Palace of Westminster.

East Cloister

The East Cloister is the perfect venue for summer receptions. To really immerse your guests in the rich history this venue has to offer, you can combine an event in this space with a tour of the Undercroft Museum or Abbey. The monks spent a great deal of their time in the cloisters, and, with the beautiful and calming views found here, it is not difficult to see why!

Undercroft Museum

Housed in the magnificent vaulted Undercroft, the museum dates back to just after King Edward the Confessor began building the Abbey in 1065. The historical prominence of the surroundings leaves even the hardest to impress guests enthralled. Subtle atmospheric lighting and a display of royal effigies, including the funeral effigy of King Charles II and King Henry VII, enhances the surroundings as your guests absorb all the Undercroft has to offer.
