Prestigious & Dramatic

The largest room at the Royal Hospital Chelsea is the Great Hall. It is an atmospheric venue with capacity for up to 250 for a Grand Dinner or 350 for a standing reception.

Whilst dining in splendour in the Great Hall, one can gaze upon a magnificent mural of Charles II, painted by Antonio Verrio, dating back to 1690. 

With the versatility and flexibility of its architectural spaces, the Great Hall offers abundant opportunities to accommodate large corporate events.

Figure Court

Figure Court is included in the hire of the Great Hall from 6pm 

The elegant Figure Court lies at the very heart of Wren's original design for the Royal Hospital. Bordered by the State Apartments, the Chapel and the Great Hall, the courtyard space is dominated by the imposing gilded statue of Charles II, created by Grinling Gibbons and presented to the King in 1682. With an incredible view of South Terrace and the South Grounds of the Hospital all the way down to embankment, a reception in Figure Court certainly gives the wow factor.

Capacity:

  • Capacity for drinks: 400
