The Great Hall

The Great Hall, with its stunning Tudor fireplace and double hammer-beam ceiling, provides a spectacular setting for a memorable event. A fantastic venue for all seasons, during the Summer the light floods in through the huge stained glassed weddings and in the Winter guests can warm themselves by the roaring fire.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert dined in the Great Hall during a visit in 1844 and the same dining table can still be used today. This, along with music from the Minstrels Gallery and a warming fire in the huge Tudor fireplace give your event unparalleled historic grandeur.

For guests booking the Great Hall for dinner, we are also able to offer the Orangery for after-dinner dancing.

From mid March to the end of October guests are welcome to wander the State Rooms and enjoy Burghley’s stunning state rooms featuring world renowned furniture and art collections.
