Reception, banquet and party venue
Royal Holloway is a versatile reception and party venue, with four impressive function rooms, to suit any event or occasion. These include two traditional rooms in the spectacular Founder’s Building as well as two more contemporary spaces.
The Picture Gallery
Our historic Picture Gallery boasts one of the finest private collections of Victorian art the country has to offer. It is one of our most popular spaces in which to host a grand banquet of up to 120 people. Your guests will be wowed by the ornately framed famous works of art from prestigious names such as William Powell Frith, Edwin Henry Landseer, John Everett Millais and many more.
Founder’s Dining Hall
The original College Dining Hall is a perfect venue for a formal banquet, reception or party. With space for up to 200 seated guests, the vast, beautiful blue high ceilings with their ornate white fixtures and subtle décor provide the perfect backdrop on which to create a unique sense of occasion.
The Crossland Suite
Contemporary and cosy the Crossland Suite is a modern breath of fresh air within the glorious Victorian architecture of the Founder’s Building. It is conveniently located next to our beautiful South Quad, making it the ideal choice if you would like to offer your guests a summer drinks reception on the lawn.
Modern and flexible, The Hub is a true blank canvas space. Our largest reception venue, The Hub seats up to 350, and boasts an attractive terrace. It also plays host to our quirky “Imagine” space, used for drinks receptions, which is creatively decorated to stimulate and inspire thought.
