Rooms and Settings

The State Rooms

The formal state rooms at Harlaxton Manor flow together beautifully, with each room providing elegant and distinctive settings for you and your guests.

After welcoming guests through the manor’s Entrance Hall, where sculpted marble, stone, and a classical fireplace lead guests upstairs, a range of elaborate rooms are available for your celebration.

The Great Hall, Ante Room, State Dining Room, Long Gallery, Gold Room, and Morning Room make for an outstanding wedding or celebration.

Great Hall

Ornate oak paneling, a magnificent crystal chandelier and Italian marble flooring make the Great Hall of Harlaxton Manor one of the most spectacular wedding venues in the country.

Originally known as The Baron’s Hall, the two-story-high Great Hall is an amazing recreation of an Elizabethan great hall.

A stunning space for weddings and larger corporate events, the Great Hall is dramatic and versatile, suitable for up to 120 guests.

The Great Hall is the perfect setting to host a magnificent large celebration.

Gold Room

Our Gold Room is one of the finest in the Manor, richly decorated with very elaborate and highly decorative rococo style paneling; reminiscent of a grand French château.

The Gold Room was one of the principal reception rooms of the Manor, previously named the Great Drawing Room. It was earlier known as the Music Room - and you can spot the gold motifs on the doors depicting musical instruments.

This gorgeous space can accommodate 60 guests, making it perfect for celebrations or smaller weddings, and the room flows beautifully through to our conservatory. It is also an ideal room for more intimate banquets and can accommodate up to 28 guests in a boardroom formation.

Conservatory

The 19th century conservatory is one of the highlights of Harlaxton Manor, creating a wondrous environment where nature and architecture meet.

Built in 1840, the conservatory is composed of five differently shaped areas, making it a bright and versatile space for any event.

Sculpted stone and marble work stand beside tropical plants and palm trees, some of which were donated from the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.

Our gorgeous conservatory offers a fantastic alternative to hosting an outside ceremony and it joins onto both the Gold Room and our formal gardens. It is a great space for afternoon tea, informal meetings, or a special day.

Long Gallery

The Long Gallery is beautifully decorated in French 18th century style setting which originally housed Gregory Gregory’s library, picture, and tapestry collection.

With its floor-to-ceiling paneling, handsome portraits and stunning views of the grounds, the Long Gallery can comfortably seat 130 guests for a formal seated banquet or 96 guests cabaret style.

It can also seat up to 200 guests theatre style - so we are able to cater for whatever party size you require for your wedding or other celebration.

State Dining Room

Our State Dining Room offers breathtaking views across our 300 acres of grounds and gardens, as well as the picturesque Lincolnshire countryside.

Boasting one of the Manor’s most elaborate Italian plasterwork ceilings, oak paneling and a huge marble fireplace, our State Dining Room is one of our most popular guest spots.

We can accommodate up to 60 guests ‘theatre style’ in our formal dining room, or, if you are after a boardroom style layout, we can cater for 36 guests. The room hire includes use of the in-room bar.

Bridal Suite

We offer all our wedding couples a complimentary stay in our bespoke and romantic bridal suite, on the night of your special day.

Enjoy a glass (or two) of champagne in our exclusive suite, relax on our luxurious king-size four poster bed, and take in the breathtaking garden views from our roll-top bath.

As opulent as it is romantic, celebrate your first night together as newlyweds at Harlaxton Manor.
