Our Event rooms
The Baron's Hall
The medieval Baron’s Hall is an impressive space at the heart of Penshurst Place providing an ideal backdrop for events with character and sophistication.
The hall can be subtly lit with candelabra at each window and the unique open fire, at the centre of the room, can be burning gently on cooler evenings.
A dance-floor can be laid with space for DJs or musicians.
Capacity for dining: 136
Capacity for standing reception: 250
We also have our newly refurbished restaurant area, adjacent to the house and close to the banqueting rooms. This can provide the perfect break-out or lunchtime space during the winter.
Capacity for seated dining up to 120.
The Sunderland Room
A charming room, ideal for meetings, lunches and formal dinners.The room is part of the original House and is the medieval solar.
The room can be partitioned by a heavy curtain to create two smaller spaces.

Once the bottle storeroom of the medieval household, the Buttery is adjacent to the Baron’s Hall. Its sandstone walls, hung with rich 17th century tapestries, creates a warm and cosy atmosphere, enhanced by an open log fire in winter.

For larger events a marquee within the grounds can provide another venue, for up to 300 guests. There is also the restaurant area next to the house, that can seat up to 120 for dining in the evenings and daytime in winter and our new Pantry - see separate entry.
