Overview

Lauderdale House is a Grade II* listed building that dates back to 1582. Situated in Highgate’s beautiful Waterlow Park, the house offers several flexible spaces for hire for wedding ceremonies or receptions, with options to accommodate up to 130 guests.

Located a short walk from Archway tube station, Lauderdale’s attractive rooms open directly onto the beautiful terraced gardens of Waterlow Park; the perfect location for your wedding celebration (and a lovely backdrop for those all-important wedding photos!) Our historic gallery spaces are licenced for civil marriages and partnerships, and couples are welcome to host either their ceremony or reception – or both – with us.

Our friendly and experienced events team will do all they can to help you plan the perfect wedding day and are happy to put together a bespoke schedule suited to your budget and needs.

Lauderdale House is a registered charity and runs as an arts centre for the local community. The income made from weddings is invested back into education, outreach and heritage projects.
