The Clore Suite offers you and your guests a versatile arrangement of space suitable for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and small evening receptions. The larger Clore Suite opens onto a spacious patio with a raised pond and planted area providing an ideal location for a summer drinks reception. These rooms can be used individually or interlinked to create a large space.

As a guide we suggest you enjoy your wedding ceremony in the Double Clore Suite followed by a drinks reception in the Double Clore Suite and Garden. For couples choosing to stay with us, you can then enjoy your wedding breakfast in the Exhibition Space followed by your evening reception in the Living Planet Gallery or Exhibition Space
