Commercial Venue

WEDDINGS

Ashridge has a number of magnificent function rooms which are licensed for civil ceremonies and can accommodate up to 120 guests. You can then welcome up to 400 guests for an evening reception.

Each room boasts its own character and charm; from the Main Hall’s neo-gothic carved stonework, to sumptuous Italian marble and gold leaf in the Lady Marian Alford Room. All rooms inter-connect, allowing you to choose how you would like to use each one to suit the individual style of your special day.

Should you be romanticising about exchanging your vows within the Gardens, you have two unique settings to choose from – on the South Terrace, or inside the Victorian Fernery.

The wedding ceremony, conducted by Dacorum Registrars, can also be tailored to suit your needs.

CONFERENCE

Ashridge House is an award-winning, Grade 1 listed neo-gothic mansion situated in the heart of the rolling Chiltern Hills, 30 miles north of London. We offer a range of flexible meeting rooms that can accommodate from 2 up to 250 people for conferences, training, meetings and events.

Welcoming guests from all over the world, we tailor our hospitality service to match the diverse requirements of each individual and every organisation.

Our stunning location, set in 190 acres, is home to both historic period rooms and contemporary spaces, all of which lead onto exquisite landscaped gardens. All rooms are fully supported by AV equipment and technical support.

In addition to our unique facilities and location, we are renowned for our fresh, seasonal cuisine. Designed to maximise performance and provide the right nutritional balance, our chefs source ingredients from local sustainable partners including wine from the local Frithsden vineyard.

Within easy reach of London’s four international airports and the main rail and motorway networks, our location couldn't be more convenient, or beautiful.
