This bright, welcoming room has a splendid and unusual wooden vaulted ceiling with natural light streaming through tall attractive leaded windows. It is stylishly furnished with pale green carpet and chairs and attractive floral arrangements. The room can seat up to 57 guests. Background music of your choice will be played for you as your guests arrive, together with that special piece of music you may have chosen for your entrance.

The parkland grounds at Bishop's College feature a lake, a bridge over The New River, mature garden and trees. All of this, together with the attractive buildings and ornate stone arches offer excellent opportunities for photographs.
