For wedding receptions, large parties and charity balls the Great Hall has dramatic style. Of its many breathtaking features, the first thing to strike you about the Great Hall is its size. Accessed by a glorious stone staircase, this is one of the largest venues in Bristol with a floor space of 7,000 sq ft, and one of very few venues in Bristol capable of seating 380 guests. But the Great Hall is more than big; it’s spectacular. Light floods in through vast leaded windows, and fifty feet above the floor soars a hammer-beam roof creating a lofty open space that exudes grandeur, history and tradition; setting the scene for an event to remember.
