Hire The Orangery and South Parlours at The Queen's House - for a venue that's fit for royalty!
The Queen’s House has an extraordinary history; it is the only major remnant of the vanished Tudor Royal Palace at Greenwich, where Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were born, and the centrepiece of what is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Conceived as a ‘house of delight’ for James I’s Queen, this exquisite former royal residence is set against the leafy backdrop of Greenwich Park and is the jewel in the down of the World Heritage Site. Designed by the pioneering architect Inigo Jones, the 400-year old Queen’s House is Britain’s first and finest classical building and a masterpiece of 17th-century architecture.
It is now filled with art and design classics both old and new, including paintings by great British and European masters. The House was designed as a place of pleasure and celebration – a tradition that continues today making it ideal for gala dinners, corporate hospitality, award ceremonies and product launches.
Bathed in southern light with breath-taking views up to the Royal Observatory, the Orangery and South Parlours offer a beautiful location for drinks receptions or daytime meetings. The Parlours house original art works and can host small presentations or boardroom meetings.
The orangery opens onto the south lawns with vistas across one of London’s oldest royal parks, once the hunting grounds of Henry VIII and his court. If the weather is fine the south lawns and colonnades make a lovely space for team buildings exercises, receptions or even a game of croquet.
