The Exhibition Space is a large open plan room with fresh white walls and wooden floors. The rooms can be hired individually or interlinked to create a large space and their simple, contemporary styling gives couples carte  blanche to let their creatively run riot. 

This is an ideal space for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. This space can be partitioned into three separate areas offering you great flexibility and can accommodate up to 443 guests in total. 

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. You can then enjoy your wedding breakfast and evening reception in the Exhibition Space.
