The Armoury and Marble Hall
Both of these rooms are situated in the main house and can be hired for exclusive events by the special request of Lord and Lady Salisbury. The spectacular architecture and the grandeur really do lend an air of the elite to any event, be it a cocktail reception or an intimate dinner.
The Armoury has been built as an open loggia in an Italian Renaissance style featuring a door at the top of the steps at each end. Within the room you will find a beautiful working domestic organ which was supplied in the 1600s and still retains its original decoration today. With a large open floor space combined with carefully curated artefacts, this room works best for hosting pre-dinner drinks before leading your guests into the Marble Hall for dinner.
The Marble Hall features, as the name suggests, a chequered black and white marble floor, an impressive working fire place, intricate wooden carvings and magnificent bay windows. The Marble Hall was built by Robert Cecil – the 1st Earl of Salisbury – in 1611 and the majority of what you see today is still identical. Sometimes used as a dining room, it is a place where the Salisbury’s would entertain guests with lavish banquets, dances and masquerades, most predominantly Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee luncheon in 2012. The real beauty of this room is that, no matter whether your party is of 20 to 100 in size, the event will still feel intimate due to the Salisbury’s ability to combine hospitality, homeliness and history.
