We love this Secret Space because…
Vast grounds, beautiful gardens and stunning architecture – Westonbirt School is a high-class and versatile event space with a real ‘wow’ factor. Suitable for meetings, conferences, parties, awards ceremonies and team building events, the imposing grandeur of Westonbirt School will take your guests’ breath away, whatever the occasion.
Acres upon acres of beautiful outdoor space
Famed for its arboretum – which is just a short walk from the school – Westonbirt also boasts this elegant Cotswolds hidden gem; a Victorian manor house with 210 acres of parkland, terraced lawns and Italian gardens. This enormous amount of outdoor space – flanked by a beautiful lake and four ponds – means the school is also perfect for hosting filming, sporting and theatrical events too.
A nine-hole golf course and impressive leisure facilities make this a favourite spot for team building events and away days, while the scenic grounds provide an idyllic setting for weddings, or an event where relaxing and unwinding are the only items on the agenda!
A majestic, historic building
Inside, the variety of versatile and unique spaces ensure that your event will be carefully hosted as a bespoke and memorable occasion. All the indoor rooms reflect the historic majesty of the venue (the building dates back to 1864 and the onsite Chapel dates back to the 12th century), whilst being equipped with all the tech required for any successful event – including a plasma TV, screen and projector, PA, microphone and Wi-Fi.
The Great Hall is a popular large event space within the school, while each of the state rooms boast ornate painted and gilded ceilings and original silk wallpaper.
At Westonbirt School, you will receive an exceptional personal service throughout the event process and exclusive use of this special Cotswolds venue.
