Our Spaces

Lauderdale House has a choice of function rooms available to hire for parties and celebrations. Our spaces can be hired either independently or all together to suit your function requirements and budget:  

At the front of the house, The Lower Gallery / Entrance Hall offers an adaptable space on the ground floor which can be set up as either one or two separate rooms. Pretty French windows look out over the open, green spaces of Waterlow Park, and allow light to flood into the room.

The Conservatory is a bright and airy modern room on the ground floor, with direct access to the park via the pretty Tea Lawn. The conservatory is ideal for smaller gatherings and get-togethers. 

On the first floor is The Long Gallery, another historic space with gorgeous period features and  stunning views over the park. A lift ensures this first floor room is accessible to all guests.

Use the form below or call us on 0208 348 8716 and a member of the team will be happy to talk you through exactly how these spaces could work on your big day!
