Richard Towneley Suite

Our Richard Towneley Suite is one of the most unique and impressive conference venues in the South East. Spectacular stained glass windows, designed by famous 19th century Irish stained glass artist Harry Clarke, create shimmering shafts of light. Complete with the original organ, bells and a vaulted timber ceiling, it creates a magnificent setting for any event. The Suite comprises of two large conference and banqueting suites catering for up to 250 people seated for dinner over two floors (Harry Clarke room & John Haywood room). There are six syndicate rooms comprising a semi-circular lounge, cloakrooms, bar, office and reception, all self-contained and available for private use.
