It benefits from a large stage which can accommodate a band with a variety of lighting options and suitable party flooring.

There is also a pleasant green space to the front that is also a lovely setting for a drinks reception if preferred and weather permitting.
The Chapel is currently only available for ceremonies on the authorisation of our resident Chaplain and the Archbishop of Canterbury and a fee applies for this special licence. For those who are lucky enough to be granted that authorisation, the beautiful interior of the Chapel is a joy to behold and the perfect setting for your wedding vows. We would be happy to discuss the limitations of this licence in further detail.
