Lower Gun Room

Crossing a stone bridge, your guests enter the castle keep through a wonderful arched doorway with a heavy wooden door and portcullis, topped by the Tudor royal coat of arms. Inside, the unusual octagonal shape of the Lower Gun Room with its thick granite walls and warm wooden flooring, provides an enchanting setting for drinks and canapés.

Drinks: 120 people

Royal Artillery Barracks

Just a short walk beyond the Tudor keep stands the Royal Artillery Barracks, built in 1901 to house the Royal Garrison Artillery. It is now converted into a newly refurbished smart self-contained suite, with its own private reception area, where you can register your guests. It contains three wheelchair accessible rooms with disabled toilets and hearing loops.
